The Secret Is Out: 7 Menu Items Everyone Needs to Know About

Hidden behind the kitchen doors of some of our favorite West Hollywood eateries are secret plates. These dishes are only for those-in-the-know, the diners with the inside scoop.

From Lobster BLT sandwiches to haute burgers with truffle oil, from Wagyu beef cuts to creative cookies­­––we are here to give you the details on all the secret menu items around the neighborhood. Go forth, and don’t miss one single bite.


This year, several New York restauranteurs have brought their concepts west. Catch is one of the most exciting east-coast openings in the neighborhood, and they’ve got an insider-only dish called Wagyu Beef on the Rock. A sizzling rock arrives at the table, and perfectly thin, delicious slices of marinated wagyu are presented for you to sear. It takes seconds before the entire restaurant is perfumed with the scent. Ultra-luxe Korean BBQ, anyone?


There are a lot of crazy poutine preparations out there, but none so fancy as the Caviar Poutine at Petrossian. It’s one of the most memorable dishes in all of Los Angeles, and must be tried to be believed. Think of it as a billionaire’s fish & chips, where the artisan potatoes are laden with crème fraiche and sprinkled with red and green onions. The apex is three types of caviar.

This gorgeous rooftop has an equally stunning fried chicken sandwich on the menu. People love it. It’s no secret. However, savvy locals always ask for the spicy rendition. This off-the-menu preparation features a house-made habanero sauce that will set your tongue on fire––in the best possible way. It’s further topped with romaine and house mayo and is served on a buttered bun. Make sure you order a cocktail at the same time to wash it down.
