Like many a pastry chef in Southern California, chef Roman Lenoir gives The Belvedere’s desserts a modern twist on farmers’ market finds. And who can blame him? It’s hard not to be impressed with the stellar stone fruit, sweet berries and bright citrus Lenoir can track down at Los Angeles’ slew of produce markets. Sample some of these tasty dessert jewels at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant in The Peninsula Beverly Hills; Lenoir’s highlights include a modern yuzu mousse paired with sake marinated blueberries and a caraway ice cream; an almond cream-filled pastry with poached apricots; and The Belvedere’s signature dessert, the lemon meringue cream pie.
