Dining room at The Belvedere, Beverly Hills, CA

The Belvedere Restaurant Review

: The Belvedere at The Peninsula Beverly Hills exudes an air of civility that is welcome amid the casual culture of Los Angeles. The dining rooms are decorated in shades of white and cream, and French doors lead out to the lovely patio. Executive chef David Codney oversees the restaurant and likes to play with herbs and other ingredients, such as Persian lemons, grown in the property's rooftop gardens. Among the appetizers, guests may find hamachi sashimi with yuzu kosho, sesame, togarashi and daikon. A menu mainstay is the truffle macaroni and cheese, studded with black truffles and hen of the woods mushrooms and accented with Parmigiano-Reggiano. Entrées might range from all-natural beef tenderloin with Yukon gold potato, young leeks and bordelaise to barramundi with cauliflower textures, brown butter, lemon, caper and parsley. Desserts from executive pastry chef Stephanie Boswell, an alum of Tru in Chicago and Sage in Las Vegas, are a highlight of the dining experience. The "chocolate garden" is pleasing both in aesthetics and flavor. Service is executed with topnotch flair. The wine list is a treasure trove of French and American bottles. On Sundays there's a three-course brunch that offers family-style appetizers (including Peking duck), choice of entrée, a dessert buffet and free-flowing Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte for $75 per person. (This is quite a value considering that a bottle of that bubbly is priced at $80 on the wine list.)
