They don’t just cram the table arrangements into the dining room of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star The Belvedere. Instead, the tables at this Los Angeles restaurant, inside The Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel, are more than comfortable. The Belvedere may be intimate, and slightly on the small side, but the room still feels spacious because the 24 tables are spaced far enough apart that you can chat privately during your ladies lunch without worrying you’re invading the businessmen’s conversation next to you. And to remove any excess baggage, each table has a small leather-bound stool for women’s purses, making more room for the delicious modern American cuisine of chef James Overbaugh. Whether you have an oversized purse or a diaper bag, this is a thoughtful touch that allows your meal to be clutter-free.
