Higher-end Los Angeles restaurants have been on a remodel tear lately, and The Belvedere at the Peninsula Beverly Hills is the latest to go under the knife.
Much like Nick + Stef’s Downtown and Estérel at the Sofitel Hotel, The Belvedere was simply getting a bit long in the tooth for today’s consumer, which has been long foregoing fancier dinners in exchange for something with an upscale casual feel — think Bestia, Republique, and the like.
In response to the changing times, The Belvedere plans to retool and re-emerge as a patio-heavy option for those in the neighborhood. They’re expanding the overall outdoor footprint and even rehabbing the menu, with executive chef David Codney said to be focusing more on Mediterranean flavors.
Look for the 21 year-old The Belvedere to reopen near the end of the year, with the last night of service set for next Monday at lunch.
