This Just In: Lawry's Carvery set to open Friday at L.A. Live

December 15, 2008 |  5:30 pm

Carverysalad Lawry's famous spinning salads, tossed tableside in a silver tureen, won't be available when the mini-chain's lower-priced casual-dining option, Lawry's Carvery, opens at L.A. Live on Friday. But take comfort in the fact that you'll still have a view of the cooks as they carve slices of prime rib in the semi-open kitchen.

More similar to the Lawry's Carvery at South Coast Plaza than the one at the food court in the Westfield Century City shopping mall, the Carvery at L.A. Live will, like its siblings, offer a menu of sandwiches, salads and prime rib at lower prices than at the flagship restaurant on La Cienega.

The beef, turkey and prime rib sandwiches will run $9.99 to $14.99, and the salads will go for $6.99 to $12.99. Signature Lawry sides like mac and cheese, creamed corn and horseradish mashed potatoes will cost $2.99 to $3.99. And yes, you can still have a steak. An 8-oz. prime rib will run you $19.99, while a 12-oz. will set you back $25.99. Compare that with the restaurant's 10- and 16-oz. prime ribs, which cost $34 and $46, respectively.
