LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – The best steakhouse in Los Angeles, the Baltaire restaurant, has been classified in the California 2021 Michelin guide with the mention “plate” for worthy cuisine. On October 7, the Michelin Guide ceased to use the âPlateau Michelinâ distinction, so Baltaire is now in the guide, but without any particular distinction. It is a great honor to receive recognition from Michelin, and the Baltaire restaurant deserves this cause.
Marketing Director Amber Jamal Eckerlund says: âWe hope to keep working hard to earn a star or two in the future. Â»Le Baltaire is a contemporary restaurant with classic genes, with an elegant dining room and a lively outdoor patio. It offers specialty cocktails and choice cuts, and you can have lunch or dinner under the stars.
Kevin Khalili, CEO of Alliance Hospitality Group, has a strong and inspiring mission statement on how he runs his restaurants. He says âProviding great food and unforgettable service to our customers across all of our brands, whether the customer is having a healthy lunch at Coral Tree Cafe or indulging in friends and family in Baltaire. “

Alliance Hospitality Group began to thrive with its Coral Tree Cafe stores, and when Brentwood Cheesecake Factory was preparing to close, they knew there was an opportunity.
âI love the people, I love the hospitality, my fondest memories growing up in the restaurants involved,â says Kevin Khalili. He took evening classes in restaurant management at UCLA, reading every book, report, and magazine article he could find to learn how to run a restaurant to the best of his ability.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Kevin Khalili and his partners knew their city and their market, and were able to create a concept that would appeal to surrounding businesses and the community at large. That’s exactly what Baltaire does, capturing a modern California vibe while retaining classic steakhouse staples like plush leather chairs, a two-sided bar with a mirror, and a fireplace.
According to the ‘Michelin Guide’, âIt’s both sultry and spacious with a gorgeous bar to boot. It has all the bells and whistles synonymous with steakhouses (think dark wood and leather) but it eschews the vibe of that tired old boy, instead providing an utterly welcoming vibe.
âThe full menu offers a number of enjoyable appetizers, including grilled artichokes, expertly charred and served with Meyer lemon aioli and Kalamata olive dip made with cottage cheese and toasted baguette. Of course, not much beats a three-inch-thick bone-toasted Porterhouse with its rich, meaty buttery flavor, served with oversized platters of button mushrooms sautÃ©ed with sweet onions and crispy roasted German potatoes.
Alliance is looking to get Baltaire on the road, considering Phoenix, Dallas, and of course New York City. âIt’s excitingâ¦ but definitely stimulating. Kevin Khalili admits. Amber Jamal and Kevin Khalili are praised for their accomplishments so far and appear to be on track to earn a Michelin star (or two) in the future.
