Everyone knows the name of the legendary hotel the Four Seasons. If you are visiting Beverly Hills, you will want to take in a meal at Culina and Vinoteca at the Four Seasons. Be sure to allow time to enjoy each course with a wine pairing. The wine Sommelier or your server can recommend the proper pairings adding to this exquisite dining experience.

Another iconic Beverly Hills restaurant is Lawrys the Prime Rib. If you love steak, don’t miss stopping into this restaurant, founded in 1938. Enjoy the spectacular Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef served tableside, or the Lobster and Prime Rib. Perhaps the Atlantic Salmon or the fish of the day is your speed…the sides are fantastic as well.

Spago Beverly Hills is a ‘dining must’ while visiting Los Angeles. Reservations are essential at this celebrity frequented eatery. For a less expensive dining experience, lunch is a smart option. Ask to sit on the patio and order one of their special cocktails. It’s the perfect place to eat lunch on a sunny California day.
The Maine Lobster Salad (avocado, cherry tomatoes, blue cheese, haricot vert, bacon and egg) offers a hearty, yet relatively healthy option, while the Guajillo Chili Chicken Salad (grilled romaine, jicama, queso fresco, cilantro-lime vinaigrette) is just right for those who prefer a lighter meal. One of Spago’s signature dishes, the salmon pizza, is simply to die for. It has a delicious crust and is served with dill creme fraiche. So tasty! Another fantastic pizza choice is the Pizza with Louisiana Shrimp (braised leeks, roasted peppers, parsley, goat cheese). Amazing! Wolfgang Puck played a notable role in the artisan pizza movement.
