In a homecoming of sorts, Hall of Fame basketball actor and former Lakers star Shaquille O’Neal non-stop his initial LA grill final week on Feb 1. It’s unfit to miss, with hulk doors and a distinguished purple Shaquille’s pointer during Downtown’s L.A. Live project, right subsequent to Staples Center where The Big Diesel helped broach 3 NBA championships.
The group describes a grill as “Southern liberality with complicated flair.” And while there are boiled immature tomatoes, shrimp and grits, mac and cheese, and corn pudding on a menu, many of a entrees are flattering customary transport with pan-roasted salmon, fry Jidori chicken, flat-iron steak, and shrimp ceviche. There are usually dual burgers on a menu, a Shaq cheeseburger and an tangible Kobe burger.
Behind a bar, usually Southern California beers are on tap. Modern and classical cocktails are available, with a booze menu that spans opposite many wine-making regions.
Shaquille’s took over SBE’s former Cleo space, that sealed in May 2018. As many would suppose with O’Neal’s involvement, there’s indifferent seating for celebrities, and a list with a Shaq-sized chair.
Shaquille O’Neal’s business ventures go distant over basketball, with a new concentration on restaurants. O’Neal debuted a Big Chicken grill in Las Vegas final October, accompanied with a Facebook video array called “Big Chicken Shaq” that tracked a restaurant’s swell before a opening.
Hours are Sunday by Thursday from 11:30 a.m. until 10 p.m., and stays open until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
