If you’re hoping to see a pair of chef’s whites during your meal at the Belvedere, you’re in luck: Chef James Overbaugh regularly visits the dining room to greet his guests. Over time, regulars and Beverly Hills locals have befriended this esteemed restaurateur; many of the residents living nearby the Peninsula Beverly Hills return again and again to the hotel for its top-notch brunch and Four-Star menu of modern American cuisine. But even if you’re dining at the hotel’s restaurant for the first time, you’ll be treated as family. Many of the friendly staff members have worked at the Belvedere for many years, so they understand the menu and wine list down to a tee and can help you make the best choices. With impeccable service — precise and attentive yet never overbearing — this dining experience offers the chic glamour of a more sophisticated lifestyle rather than the trendy off-hands mentality so many of L.A’s restaurants embrace today.
