Lawry's Restaurants

Lawry's The Prime Rib /ˈlaʊəriːz/ is a high-end, gourmet restaurant chain. The original location on Restaurant Row on La Cienega Boulevard in Beverly Hills, California, was founded by Lawrence L. Frank and Walter Van de Kamp and opened in 1938. It is still operated by the Frank and Van de Kamp families.

For many years, Lawry's, which can be described as a carvery, was unique among restaurants in having but a single entrée (or main course) on its menu, standing rib roast. It now serves a few additional entrées (namely vegetarian specials and lobster tails), but is still generally considered to be a roast beef restaurant. The roast beef at the restaurant is served from a large silver cart pushed from table to table, where the meat is then carved to order.
