If you prefer a savory end to your meal rather than sweet, The Belvedere’s cheese course is the perfect way to finish off the evening. Chef James Overbaugh handpicks a rotating selection of artisanal cheeses for The Peninsula Beverly Hills’ Four-Star restaurant, and the eight-course tasting often features unique small-farmed products as well as classic favorites in the dairy world. On any given night your cheese course at The Belvedere may include the quintessential cheese plate varietal Reblochon, a creamy cow’s milk cheese from Haute Savoie, France; the earthy Smokey Blue, a Rogue River Creamery smoked cow’s milk creation; or the tangy Queijo de Cabra Curado, a Portuguese goat’s milk blended with thistle flower rennet. Add don’t forget the vino: Make sure to pair a glass of wine from The Belvedere’s impressive collection with your cheese course to truly complete your meal at this Forbes Travel Guide favorite.
