Welcome in to the completely rethought Belvedere, one of Beverly Hills’ fine dining stalwarts tucked into the Peninsula Hotel. Open for 21 years, the restaurant went under the knife last September, only now emerging as a slightly more casual affair, with a fully revamped menu by chef David Codney to boot.

Inside, there’s still a sense of elegance to the place (they haven’t done away with the white tablecloths, after all), but the dining room is much less stuffy, thanks to lightly-toned chairs and long, plus banquettes and some all-new wooden flooring.

As for the food, expect more than just chops and salad (though they remain on the menu as well). Codney offers a monkfish osso bucco, rotating tagines, and further Middle Eastern-inspired options like za’atar and shawarma flatbreads. Some of the produce and many of the herbs have even been grown on-site, from a rooftop garden Codney had installed.

Michael Ploetz, who oversees the beverage program for the entire hotel, is behind the strong wine and cocktail list as well. The Belvedere is open daily once again for breakfast, lunch and dinner inside the Peninsula Beverly Hills.
