downtown H&H Brazilian Steakhouse is on the way to expansion. The just-enough upscale 7th Street restaurant is heading west to the Beverly Center to occupy prime real estate, with an opening slated (possibly) as early as late February.
Brazil’s new H&H is taking over the former Farmhouse space, the plush, big-corner that opened to much fanfare — and its own executive farmer — in 2018 as the anchor tenant of the revamped mall. The restaurant quietly closed during the pandemic and is now transformed into an upscale casual spot for Brazilian meats, sides, cocktails, and more.
The downtown iteration of Brazilian H&H opened in 2019 and has continued to do robust business as both an all-you-can-eat and a la carte option for dinner and weekend brunch. The unlimited churrasco menu is $64 per person with options ranging from filet mignon and picanha to ribeye, lamb chops, sausages, pork chops and beyond. The restaurant also serves A5 Japanese wagyu beef, whole ribs and a serious burger also available at the bar. Happy hours run weekdays from 5-7 p.m., and there’s even occasional live music — which will continue at the Beverly Center from about a month or so, pending final approvals.
It’s been a roller coaster ride in recent years for the Beverly Center, which has suffered $500 million remodel to rival the likes of nearby Westfield Century City and The Grove. Since then, in-person retail sales have increased tremendously due to the ongoing pandemic, and the property has struggled to consolidate longtime culinary talent on-site.
Sinner remains the Beverly Center’s most popular restaurant, although the recently reopened Akira Back ABsteak restaurant has also garnered positive attention. Others like Michael Mina’s Cal Mare have closed, and Mina no longer plans to open a top-floor food court inside the mall either. Now is the time for Brazilian H&H owner Henrique Huyer to step up to his own audience and upscale meaty decadence, hoping to be slicing steaks for customers for many years to come.
