On the first sizzling and sun-drenched day of March, I made it a point to kick off the Spring season by having a light, refreshing lunch al fresco. My first instinct was Belvedere in the Peninsula Beverly Hills after having had such a wonderful brunch experience at their Roof Garden restaurant.
Short and sweet: Both food and service were sensational, living up to Belvedere's AAA Five Diamond status.
YELLOW TOMATO SOUP with Moroccan Olives, Miticaña Cheese and Parsley
MAINE LOBSTER SALAD with Sweet Corn and Jicama, Tarragon, Radicchio and Frisée, Lime-marinated Chioggia Beets
Belvedere’s patio is supremely charming and tranquil.
