In Beverly Hills there will always be something, be it a restaurant, an event, or entertainment. There is always new happening in this place. Whether you’re into gourmet food, a relaxing atmosphere, or just want to have fun with your friends or be entertained by live music and dancing. Then this is the place for you.
Do you want to have dinner in an old English manor house with a roaring fireplace? How about sitting on the patio by candlelight at sunset with live music coming from the speakers near the water, surrounded by palms and flowers? Or would you rather have a Latin flair, listening to salsa bands play while wearing your most elegant evening clothes? All of this is available just minutes away from Beverly Hills.
Everyone has different tastes and that means everyone should be able to find something they love in Beverly Hills, even if it’s just grabbing a bag of chips from a street vendor.
Okay, I just mentioned some of the oldest and most famous restaurants in BH. But for the next, these are the newest hotspot restaurants in the area.
The Bicyclette, a basement component of a two-tiered restaurant venture, is an example of one of the newest eateries. The polished wood interior and French wines by the half glass make you feel like you’ve stumbled into an old-school Parisian café. Veteran chefs Walter and Margarita Manzke offer traditional French taste to this busy stretch of Pico Boulevard with a rotating menu of classics like escargots en croûte and bouillabaisse, as well as seasonal specialties such as soft-shell crab à la grenobloise. The mood is upbeat and cozy, and it’s more personal than the chef couple’s other enterprises, especially at the wood-paneled bar (reserved for walk-ins). Bicyclette’s wacky cocktail zine adds interesting new beverages to go with a sizable international wine list. Don’t forget about the meal’s sweets: Margarita’s James Beard Award-winning tarts and pastries are unforgettable.
My meal was decadent from start to finish. We started the meal with a Baguette and Rudolf le Meunier Normandy Butter then splurged on two Soft Eggs in the Shell, Smoked Sturgeon, and Kaluga Caviar. The oysters were to die for.
My main entree was the Duck Breast, Baby Beets, Barley, and Brooks Cherries dish and I could not recommend it enough.
We finished off the meal with a complementary apricot tart. 5/5 experience.

Bistro classics are done to perfection. I’m a fan of everything Walter and Margarita Manzke touch but this is really their best work.
Tarte Tatin! Please get it. It’s one of my favorite dishes and it needs more love in LA.
I recognized the sommelier. He was original with Nancy Silverton, then at Republique (Bicyclette’s sister restaurant), and landed here. Easily one of the best I’ve met.
It’s not the largest place so a reservation is key. Their upstairs is supposed to open soon with a more expansive menu.

A high-end Beverly Hills steakhouse whose interior design straddles the line between a classic American steakhouse and a Eurocentric Lost in Translation-style Japanese cocktail bar is named Matu. Matu’s tasting menu options are a boon for high-quality red meat enthusiasts, with their laser focus on various Wagyu beef preparations. We think Matu is a wonderfully minimalist tasting menu addition to Los Angeles’ wide-ranging steakhouse scene, with its rotating, solid variety of side dishes and desserts including yuzu salt-spiked bone broth and braised beef cheeks on a celeriac puree. Our advice? The $78 per person tasting menu is the best way to experience it for first-time guests.
Yesssssss – I’m so glad my friend introduced me to Matu! The meat was incredible and the service was TOP NOTCH servers were always attentive, funny, and engaging! They were quite busy but they took time in making us feel welcome…we did the tasting menu and wow wow wow!! The portions were perfect and everything was so good!! Cannot wait to take my husband!!!

I have to say it’s the sexiest new steak restaurant in SOCAL. It’s been a while since I found steak or beef that exciting. I brought hubby here for his birthday. From the moment we walked into the restaurant till we left, the service was impeccable.
I wanted to give a big shout-out to our server – Christian who made our experience pleasant.
We decided on the chef’s tasting and added the beef cheeks and Maitake mushrooms to our meal. My favorite dish was the beef cheeks. Totally melt in your mouth full of goodness. I could eat this for my last supper. The portions were very reasonable and extremely filling. Every dish tasted so unique, and simple, yet so divine.
Hubby claimed I scored a 20/10 for planning his birthday dinner 🙂

I love red meat! This place is a meat lover’s dream. The beef here is so premium and all the dishes here are a piece of art. Went with my friend to dine in LA and we had a great dinner. Didn’t take a picture of other drinks I order at the bar but a must-try is the Paloma… delicious!

Beverly Hills’ Gucci Osteria, a gleaming new Italian restaurant run by world-famous chef Massimo Bottura and based on his original in Florence (which has one Michelin star), is at the crossroads of fine dining and fashion. Dinner by the head chef Mattia Agazzi, location atop Rodeo Drive, with a view of the retail and luxury vehicles below, is the pinnacle of extravagance and excess. Expect a “whimsical and grounded” approach to modern Italian cuisine, according to Michelin, whether you’re ordering a la carte or partaking in the $150 per person tasting menu. Agazzi’s cuisine combines with a beautifully designed indoor-outdoor dining room to produce a sophisticated, Rodeo Drive-style eating experience. Santa Barbara uni–mixed at Osteria and house-made egg pasta and guanciale-style calamari – and Monterey seaweed – are combined with refined, Rodeo Drive-style food in this restaurant.
We were here for the immaculate vibes and creative dishes- and Gucci served both!
Not only was the food so aesthetically pleasing but also delicious and unique. My favorite was the:
The City is in Bloom- the Japanese turnip was crisp and savory. Carefully arranged in a lovely display of dashi sauce. Don’t sleep on this dish
Oops, I Broke the Meringue- Light and sweet. The dessert melts in your mouth and is so beautifully crafted.
Overall, *a super cute* place to dress up for date night or for dinner with your girls. Unique rooftop experience.

First off, please keep in mind that you’re dining in Beverly Hills, on Rodeo Drive, on the third floor of the Gucci flagship store. It’s not going to be cheap. Service is impeccable. Informative and warm, but not fussy or arrogant. We did not order the tasting menu, instead of ordering our selections à la carte, and received exceptional service throughout our meal. Bread, cocktails, salads, pasta dishes, wines, and complimentary dessert nibbles to finish our meal were all delicious. It’s a touristy, special occasion sort of place — and we loved every minute of it. The best part is the waiter sends you directly into the second floor of the store below via a private elevator after your meal, so no need to queue up out front on Rodeo for admittance. Recommended, although make sure that you have a sufficient limit on your credit card before sitting down to your meal.

The rooftop restaurant of the Beverly Hills Hotel is a pleasant and flavorful place. DJs entertain guests at one end of the open-air dining area, while bowls of artistic fresh hummus, heated laffa, chicken schnitzel sandwiches, crudos, and another Cal-Med cuisine from h.wood Group chefs Michael Teich and Burt Bakman (SLAB) elicit plenty of exclamations and stolen bites from customers throughout the restaurant. Be sure to stop by at brunch, when you can find dishes such as babka French toast and an extremely delicious brisket Benedict (sporting, you guessed it, Bakman’s SLAB brisket).
Wow, Sant’olina was such an amazing brunch. For starters, the staff is so kind and accommodating. The owner/manager, not sure what his position is, checked on us numerous times, made sure we got the parking validation(although it didn’t work), and offered to take our picture.
The decor wasn’t anything outstanding but still had a great aesthetic for a rooftop and perfect lighting. Great views of BH!
Our food was delicious!! Everything we got we all loved. The feta and hummus starters, get them both, trust me you will not regret it. The drinks were good, although my friend’s cocktails were a bit pricey for what they got. Overall a lovely experience and wish we lived closer!

Santolina is a great rooftop restaurant on top of the Beverly Hilton that offers a great view of the Hollywood Hills and Beverly Hills, good service, and tasty food and cocktails. Given the Mediterranean focus, the cocktails here have a Mediterranean twist. The Stand Up Turk (a spin on an espresso martini) was delicious – the Turkish coffee added a bit of sweetness and the anise spices balanced it with a bit more bitterness that was enjoyable. The Saz-arak was fairly potent given the arak flavor so would only recommend it if you like arak!
The marinated feta was delicious and came with good laffa bread. The beets and halloumi (who doesn’t like grilled halloumi and fruits) and falafel were both delicious and good for sharing as well. Definitely, a place to enjoy yourself and grab a good drink and app with the view.

Kazan Beverly Hills
Kazan is a Beverly Hills ramen restaurant with bourgeois prices that match the quality of its food. It’s also been cited by the Michelin guide for its soba ramen, which features a wheat-based noodle tonkatsu broth for more purist noodle slurpers. Kazan’s most popular soba ramen is gilded with truffle oil, which is an unnecessary flourish in our opinion. Nonetheless, Ryu Isobe’s classically decorated brick-lined ramen-ya is worth a visit for its more conventional broths as well as its vegan and fusion options.
Kazan in Beverly Hills just received a Michelin Bib Gourmand award. Tried their #7 ‘Lamb in Lava’, #1 Signature Ramen, and lotus chips. The ramen was delicious, both had unique broths and fresh, handmade noodles. The #1 Signature Ramen was the best I have ever tasted. The broth was rich and flavorful and the noodles just melted in your mouth. The lava ramen had perfectly cooked lamb chops in a spicy Sichuan broth. Delicious. Parking is a bit hard to find but next door they share valet parking with Matsuhisa.
The servers were courteous and hard-working. The restaurant design is modern, hip, warm, well-lit, and inviting. There is also outdoor patio dining with space heaters.
This will definitely be a regular place for me.

My buddy recommended this spot! I’ve read the chef came from Tatsu ramen which I also love. Upon entering you can see the machines that produce the ramen noodles on site. You can tell that a lot of care goes into the product here. I ordered signature #1. A shoyu-based broth with truffle flavors piping through. Thin soba ramen noodles that are handmade on site. Cooked perfectly al dente for a nice chew. The pork slices melted in your mouth are delicious. It also came with pork/shrimp wontons. I really enjoyed this bowl. Great textures and bold broth that just hits your tongue nicely. I would recommend this for any ramen fan looking to try something a bit different.
Recommendation: Signature #1 bowl

Vibe and Mood are everything.
With Valet right in front of the restaurant, the minute you step out of the car, you can feel the energy of the place. Has outside and inside seating. We were greeted by the host in the front and got seated right away. The live DJ was mixing tunes at the entrance.
Menu via QR code scanning and straightforward. Our server was friendly and fun.
We got the crab cake to share, the infamous Salt Bae Tomahawk, fries, and creamed spinach. Although the SaltBae Chef himself was not there, the guy who did our table side cutting and seasoning, was suave and entertaining. #saltbae. While I was there, I was curious about that Golden Tomahawk, unfortunately, I did not see anyone order it.
Price is on the higher level, it is worth that dinner to impress or a good fun celebration. Would recommend it for those looking to splurge and have a fun vibe.

Artwalk | Leimert Park Village Live Experience
The Leimert Park Artwalk is a monthly public celebration of Art, Music, Cinema & History!
The Artwalk takes place on the last Sunday of each month in Leimert Park Village, the cultural hub of the Black arts community.
It is a FREE event featuring food, gift shops, free movies children’s art-making, a variety of music such as Pop, Jazz R&B, Hip Hop & Spoken word, as well as a continuous African Drum Circle in scenic Leimert Park. It also includes Phantom gallery displays of known and emerging visual artists.
Ben Caldwell and KAOS Network create projects that will engage and develop the understanding of media in 2021. By way of art, KAOS hopes to bring people together to explore and preserve the unique culture of the African Diaspora. Major plans for the future that are in the works are autonomous cars which will not only drive themselves throughout Leimert Park Village but will also equip the driver and passengers with entertainment and community messaging they can watch. This will help to revolutionize driving and the way audiences consume media. KAOS also plans to utilize the new Metro line that will be constructed by 2022. The Metro line will go directly through predominately Black portions of South Los Angeles while showcasing area multimedia projects and creating a platform for young artists to showcase their work to those who travel through their neighborhoods.
