The Steak Joynt... what?

Finding an unfamiliar, old world steak house is about as hard as finding a condo for under a million on the Westside. But venturing off to La Canada for our monthly Taylor's visit, circumstances conspired to make us stop in North Hollywood and the Steak Joynt on Lankersheim near Moorpark. Brightly lit with a faux German Shepherd in front and a mechanical Santa near the restrooms, SJ has the all the requisite charm of the other older established places like Dal Rae or The Smoke House. We arrived at 5pm and by 6pm the place was full with a festive bar scene to boot. A shrimp cocktail came with six large shrimp and a nice biting sauce. The house salad for $6.95 comes with a choice of dressings, as well as mushrooms and tomato, and we had to try the Green Goddess. Very good. But the chopped salad with creamy bleu was something I'd go back for on its own. A salmon dinner for $14.95 was at least 8oz. and would certainly satisfy those few who've been disappointed with the 4oz. version for $13 at Violet. My ribeye was tender with great flavor for $19.95 and the bone in NY for $22.95 was also very good. The foil wrapped baked potato came with foil wrapped butter but both were fresh. A bottle of J Lohr cab for $24 rounded out the evening with the tab coming in just a little over a hundred. Service was caring and attentive with the owners, Rhona and Herb Newman, both in attendance and making every one feel as if they were part of the family.
