We want to thank the community for voting in this year’s Best Of Brentwood 2022! We had well over 27,000 votes from the community this year and many nominations – it is truly amazing to see the community come together for that! This year, we encourage you to shop local for the holidays – whether they are the “Best” business in their category, a nominated business or a business that isn’t even listed in this publication – small businesses are what makes our communities thrive!
So, as we start to hear more and more news about supply chain issues and big box stores not having gifts for the holidays, we encourage you to look local – shop small this holiday season and support all your community businesses!
From our family to yours, we wish you an amazing end of the year and a happy holiday season! As always, thank you for reading, following, watching and supporting!

Best Restaurant

Winner
Baltaire
Phone Number: 424-273-1660
Address: 11647 San Vicente Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90049
Website: https://www.baltaire.com/

Since it opened its doors in 2014, Baltaire has brought Brentwood an elegant yet inviting restaurant & lounge for lunches in the sun and dinners under the stars. It’s the perfect spot for cocktails and conversation or an intimate dinner any night of the week. With Chef Travis Strickland leading the restaurant; the executive chef leading the kitchen; and its certified sommelier curating their prodigious wine list, Baltaire brings the highest grade steaks, the most exceptional seafood, and resplendent drinks along with plenty of healthy, light fare options.

Its bright and airy dining room gives way to a gorgeous outdoor terrace through floor-to-ceiling glass doors, providing spacious seating for sun-soaked lunches and lavish nighttime wining and dining, all with a mid-century modern design. Adjacent to the main dining room, its inviting lounge is the ideal place to meet and enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine or catch live bands every Thursday and Friday night with a wide array of rotating talent.

Baltaire’s upscale yet approachable menu spotlights premium meats, complemented by various dishes celebrating the sea’s bounty and the local markets. Some guest favorites include Spicy Salmon Crispy Rice, Seafood Tower selections, Lollipop Lamb Chops, a massive 44oz Tomahawk Steak made for sharing, or Lobster Mac & Cheese. Be sure to save room for dessert, like their famous Bourbon Croissant Bread Pudding or Butterscotch Pot de Crème. An eclectic and well-balanced wine list from top global producers, signature cocktails, and an extensive rare spirits selection enhance Baltaire’s menu, service, and ambiance to expand the vernacular of the steakhouse.

In addition to nightly dining and lunch Monday through Friday, it serves as a beautiful event space; from corporate meetings to rehearsal dinners and award ceremonies to high-profile functions, the restaurant accommodates intimate gatherings and large groups. You can also enjoy an array of holiday celebrations throughout the year, including a New Year’s Eve party, Easter & Mother’s Day Bruch, and their Annual Derby Day Viewing Party. If you’re looking to host an extra special Thanksgiving dinner at home without the prep work, you’ll want to head to their website to check out their delicious annual Thanksgiving Carry Out options.

For reservations, visit baltaire.com or call the restaurant at 424.273.1660. Bar & lounge seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
