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 comfy booths create the mood for good old-fashioned deal making. Look for highlights like the grilled New York steak, Beeler Ranch pork chop and house-made short rib pasta to anchor the menu, with help from some seafood dishes such as pan-fried petrale sole, an ahi tuna burger and a Dungeness crab and shrimp Louie.
