The menu at The Belvedere, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant in Beverly Hills, is a combination of the classic technique and modern style of chef James Overbaugh and the signature desserts of pastry chef Roman Lenoir. The sweet side of things features playful presentations of traditional French desserts artfully prepared by Lenoir, including The Belvedere’s lemon meringue pie with graham cracker crust ice cream and classic chocolate soufflé. A fan favorite amongst the local Beverly Hills-set is Lenoir’s chocolate and caramel cake, paired with rich coffee ice cream and a malted vanilla sauce. And if you’d prefer just a bite of something sweet for dessert at The Belvedere, the housemade ice creams and sorbets are served by the scoop, and feature rich fruit-forward flavors and interesting spice combinations.
