Restaurants in Beverly Hills Hotels
Beverly Hills hotels don’t stop at world-class accommodations and service! Many house restaurants are destinations in their own right and a must-try on your next visit.
CUT by Wolfgang Puck at Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel
Set between Beverly Wilshire’s grand lobby facing Wilshire Boulevard and the hotel’s valet driveway off El Camino Drive sits Wolfgang Puck’s CUT. Ever since receiving the James Beard Foundation’s Best New Restaurant, 2006, CUT regularly tops lists for best restaurants in Los Angeles and top steakhouses in the country. The uber-modern design with light wood and white walls, designed by Richard Meier, the acclaimed architect of LA’s Getty Center, positions CUT a world away from a traditional steakhouse. While all would agree steak is a must for your meal, consider creative appetizers to start like Warm Veal Tongue with baby artichokes and Bone Marrow Flan with mushroom marmalade.
The Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel
The Polo Lounge has been the favorite breakfast spot and watering hole for generations of stars and Hollywood deal-makers. The name sprang from the lounge’s early regulars, including Will Rogers, who would stop in for a drink following a polo game. Today, the historic restaurant attracts ladies who lunch as well as industry execs and the celebrities they woo, making it the ultimate afternoon power-dining spot. The menu features many healthy salads – including the famous McCarthy Salad, plus heartier fare like gourmet burgers and steak frites. Though redesigned in recent years, to enjoy a meal at The Polo Lounge is to take a step back in Hollywood history.
Caulfield’s Bar and Dining Room at SIXTY Beverly Hills
On the ground floor of SIXTY Beverly Hills hotel, Caulfield’s Bar & Dining Room dishes up contemporary American cuisine with French Mediterranean influences. Head in for upscale twists on classics and comfort foods like the House-smoked Tuna Melt with oven roasted tomatoes, avocado and havarti on a pretzel bun and Pan Roasted Barramundi with house-made gnocchi, preserved meyer lemon, tarragon and broccolini. Other menu highlights include Braised Short Rib, mussels and their incredible Lobster Mac ‘n Cheese. An airy sunroom, marble-topped communal tables and soft custom leather armchairs fill different sections of the restaurant, making it the perfect spot for an intimate business lunch or a night out with a group of friends.
Viviane at Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills
Mid-century gem, Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills, recently welcomed its new restaurant, Viviane, which serves fresh Continental cuisine with a Californian twist. Guests can sit inside the chic restaurant, located just off the hotel’s main entrance, or alfresco at a poolside table or private cabana. Here, plates are served family-style which allows guests to share multiple dishes such as Yellowfin Tuna Tartare with pine nut crema and pickled onion, served with warm ciabatta crostini or Crispy Pork Belly with Brussels sprouts kraut, apple onion compote and a rosemary jus which is delicately poured onto the dish once it arrives at your table. The indoor-outdoor eatery, which was designed by internationally-renowned Kelly Wearstler, also features an impressive wine list of Californian and French varietals and a cocktail menu with a well-polished take on classic drinks like the Manhattan, Cosmopolitan and Long Island Iced Tea.
The Belvedere at The Peninsula Beverly Hills
Following an extensive four month renovation, The Belvedere at The Peninsula Beverly Hills has reopened its doors to reveal striking new interiors, an expanded outdoor terrace and sensational new dishes. Under the direction of Executive Chef David Codney, the new menu features Mediterranean-inspired dishes with a focus on locally sourced ingredients and wild-caught seafood. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, guests will enjoy plates such as Nutella French Toast with banana for breakfast, Prosciutto Flatbread with arugula pesto and duck egg at lunch and Grass-Fed Lamb Tagine with golden raisin couscous and cumin yogurt for dinner.
Avec Nous at Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills
Hotel guests to the newly renovated all-suite property, Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills, has recently unveiled its new French bistro, Avec Nous, led by world-renowned chef, Oliver Quignon. Chef Quignon prepares the restaurant’s dishes using his classic French techniques, but opts for lighter dare, incorporating Mediterranean, Italian and Spanish flavors and spices. Ingredients are sourced from local Southern California growers and farms. Standouts from Chef Quignon’s menu include the Whole Roasted Cauliflower, served with Vadouvan curry, Marcona almonds and a golden raisins puree, and the Côte de Bœuf, a grilled beef chop with Bibb lettuce, roasted shallots and vierge sauce, both served tableside for two. Other must haves include the Sea Scallops, which are prepared with Indian and African spices and served with mushy broccoli and a squid ink crisp, or the Nicoise Salad, presented with organic baby gem lettuce, artichokes, red bell peppers, anchovies, black olives, scallions and capers. Offering both indoor and al fresco patio seating, the chic, yet welcoming space boasts ornate decorations and a hip St. Tropez vibe, perfect for any occasion.
Montage Beverly Hills will debut two new concepts by Geoffrey Zakarian in June 2016. Georgie, a modern American restaurant, will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Garden Bar, a comfortable yet sophisticated lounge, will be open morning to night, featuring all day fare, distinct coffees and teas, as well as a robust cocktail program.
