Special orders are just part of the territory in Los Angeles, so the chefs at The Belvedere are used to seeing any number of requests, including for a gluten-free or allergy sensitive menu — in fact, executive chef James Overbaugh estimates that 5 percent of guests ask for some type of variation on the menu every day. This Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel adopts the same philosophy toward service as its parent hotel, The Peninsula Beverly Hills — putting high-quality service and exceptional experience at the top of the list. That means no request is turned down. Although there is no set gluten-free or allergy sensitive menus at The Belvedere, if you call ahead, the restaurant’s chefs will make sure to prepare a stunning replacement (and save your preferences in a profile with the restaurant and hotel, so that the next time you visit, they’re prepared). If the kitchen doesn’t have a specific item you’ve requested on hand, they’ll do their best to offer the next-best option and can easily create a gluten-free or allergy sensitive meal to accommodate your needs.
