Hutchinson Hits La Cienega Restaurant Scene With Indonesian Steakhouse Concept

Hutchinson isn’t just the latest entry on L.A.’s high-risk La Cienega restaurant row, it’s just about the first Indonesian-style steakhouse anywhere, adorned with carvings, textiles and dark woods that make a distinct change of pace from former tenant Spanish Kitchen.

Inspired by the owners’ grandparents, who learned to cook the cuisine while living in-country after World War II, Hutchinson’s menu marries premium steaks and grilled fish with Southeast Asian flavors. Steaks, available with six exotic sauces, include Wagyu skirt, Nebraskan filet, USDA Prime New York strip and Creekstone rib-eye.

Chef James Trees formerly cooked at Michael Mina restaurants and at Whist at the Viceroy — he’s not Indonesian, but he’s a quick study on regional specialties with ingredients like the gula jawa or coconut palm sugar used in the toffee sauce or ice cream sandwiches with the Australian favorite, Anzac biscuits, with Lyle’s Golden Syrup.

Cocktails also have exotic touches — and the bar menu’s available until 1:30 a.m.

Eat: Crispy Tai snapper, Nasi Goreng fried rice, Creekstone ribeye with bone marrow Bordelaise, chocolate mousse with toffee sauce

Drink: Tamarind Sour with Batavia Arrack, Pimm’s, tamarind; Micronesian Mule with vodka, peppercorn, ginger
