Politics and celebrity don’t tend to mix, but they do at Esquire Grill, where the clientele is often a who’s who of California state politics. This Paragary-owned restaurant serves up a variety of classic and modern American fare in upscale environs. Think of Esquire as a contemporary politician’s version of L.A.’s classic Musso & Frank Grill—minus the old-man waiters and ham steaks. Wooden pillars, a flowing bar and the comfy booths create the mood for good old-fashioned deal making. Expect classics like Dungeness crab Louis and grilled New York steak and iceberg lettuce with blue cheese dressing to anchor the menu, with help from some Far East influences such as an ahi tuna burger and sashimi.
