The Belvedere, with its classic design and refined atmosphere, plays mellow classical music; anything else just wouldn’t feel right. Dining at this Four-Star restaurant, tucked inside the Peninsula Beverly Hills, might transport you to another era of sophistication, where chivalrous men pull chairs out for ladies and everyone is dressed to impress. Although the Belvedere is in the heart of one of Los Angeles’s most notable neighborhoods, just steps away from the famous Rodeo Drive, its grand table settings, with luxurious gold-toned linens and sparkling glassware, plush floral carpeting and charming outdoor patio call to mind the English countryside. The classical music sets the tone of elegance during a meal of chef James Overbaugh’s modern, market-fresh American cuisine; the refreshing melodies make it quite easy to carry a conversation or just enjoy the easy ambiance.
