The Belvedere is lucky to call The Peninsula Beverly Hills home, and it’s just a stone’s throw away from a weekly neighborhood farmers market where you’ll find some of the best produce in Southern California, which the restaurant’s talented chefs use to create lovely seasonal dishes. Chef James Overbaugh transforms that produce, along with sustainable seafood and artisanal products from local vendors, into his creative menu for this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant. Although some signature dishes, such as his New Orleans-style Oysters Overbaugh, are continually featured, this chef works with the seasonal produce to create his six-course tasting menu and nightly specials. You’ll see plenty of seasonal dishes at The Belvedere like squash blossoms filled with white polenta and chilled cucumber soup with grilled hearts of palm, highlighting Overbaugh’s love of the land around him.
