All of the restaurants at The Peninsula Beverly Hills feature a kids’ menu, so families with children can rest easy knowing there will be choices for their youngsters. At first glance, The Belvedere, with its chic atmosphere and refined décor, might not seem like a good place for kids to dine, but the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant doesn’t have an age limit and welcomes those junior gourmands who like sitting with the adults and can make it through a longer meal (otherwise, you might want the concierge to arrange for a sitter).
The kids’ menu at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star The Peninsula Beverly Hills (which is the same for room service) includes little plates and bigger plates, so no matter your child’s appetite you can find something she’ll like. Little plates include choices such as cheese and crackers, PB&J, a wedge salad with bacon and ranch dressing and alphabet chicken soup. Bigger plates range from mac and cheese and a cheeseburger with fries to grilled salmon with rice pilaf and lemon butter. The Belvedere’s regular breakfast menu is also quite kid-friendly with choices such as fresh strawberry-banana smoothies, Frosted Flakes, fresh-baked muffins and pancakes or waffles. For lunch, kids will enjoy the hearty Angus beef chili with cheddar or the refreshing chicken Caesar salad.
Children enjoy The Roof Garden at The Peninsula Beverly Hills because it offers alfresco dining, and they can order a hamburger or a delicious sandwich. Surprisingly, many children — especially girls — like to have Afternoon Tea in The Living Room. I think they enjoy getting dressed up, eating sweets and finger sandwiches, which are just their size, and feeling like grownups.
