The Belvedere at The Peninsula Beverly Hills

It’s been four months in the making, and Angelenos are now cheering the return of The Belvedere to the Los Angeles high-end dining scene. Open for 21 years inside The Peninsula Beverly Hills, the restaurant closed last September for a top-to-toe renovation. The Belvedere reopens this month with a new look and a new menu, which the Los Angeles Times describes as chef David Codney’s “take on approachable Mediterranean food.”

The focus is on locally sourced ingredients — including vegetables from the chef’s rooftop garden —  and wild-caught seafood. Dishes include monkfish, osso bucco and grass-fed lamb tagine. There’s also an impressive wine and cocktail list.

Eater proposes “basking” inside the new digs: “there’s still a sense of elegance to the place… but the dining room is much less stuffy, thanks to lightly-toned chairs and long, plus banquettes and some all-new wooden flooring.” The dining room now also acts as an art gallery with a collection of contemporary works by Alex Katz, Sean Scully, Fabienne Verdier, Tsuyoshi Maekawa, Josef Albers and Yayoi Kusam.
