Reader Recommends: Ted's of Beverly Hills (Bar & Steakhouse)
One of our readers has written in to let us know about his favorite restaurant in Los Angeles, 'Ted's of Beverly Hills'. This restaurant is considered a 5 star white tablecloth establishment and our reader highly endorses it. Apparently, Ted's was the first restaurant to serve baked potatoes in the aluminum foil wrapper, something that is now the standard at all restaurants. This was many of the restaurant firsts that Ted's introduced to the hospitality industry. The website fhwrdh.net also notes that this establishment also was the first to serve: rum and coke mixed together (called the "ted" - meyer's rum and coke), the steak sandwich and the gorgonzola and garlic salad. Fhwrdh.net also notes that Ted's introduced the serrated knife to the steak world, was the first to put lemon juice on shrimp cocktail and was the first to use two salad forks in the place settings. We will have more info to come including a partial copy of the menu.
