Summer BBQ comes to Nick + Stef's Patio on Thursdays

Skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, pasta salad and potato salad

New this summer at Nick + Stef’s in downtown LA is a summer barbeque every Thursday evening on the restaurant’s patio in which Executive Chef Megan Logan grills veggies and meats and serves up traditional summer bbq sides.

From 5:00 to 9:00 pm on Thursdays through Labor Day, she will be grilling up tri-tip for sandwiches, skirt steak, chicken, shrimp and more plus serving up sides such as potato salad and corn on the cob. The main dishes are $8 - $14 and the sides are $5 each. There is also a cocktail available for $5, a wallet friendly price in pricey downtown.

Pea and radish salad and cabbage slaw
The consensus favorite side dish among my tablemates was the potato salad as it had a good amount of flavor.  The spicy cabbage slaw was not so spicy and on the bland side.

I enjoyed the skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, which went straight from the grill to my table (a benefit of a true open kitchen - the outdoor grill) so arrived piping hot.  These Thursday night bbqs are a fun excuse to hang out outdoors in a comfortable setting and enjoy the casual food.  The timing also works perfectly to eat at Nick + Stef's before heading across the street to the Grand Performances series.

One of the best parts of the new program is the opportunity to sit outside and eat and enjoy listening to the music from a different local band each week. The series kicked off last Thursday with Black Crystal Wolf Kids and rumor has it that they will be back again before the summer is out.

There is complimentary valet parking for up to 3 hours after 5 pm in the Wells Fargo Center Parking Garage (enter on Hope Street.)
