One week into opening, and it’s clear that Jean-Georges at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills is likely to attract a crowd. The sprawling, spacious floor-level eatery stands out from a clustered Los Angeles restaurant field by offering discerning diners a decidedly more opulent affair, complete with caviar dishes and a burger that hugs the $30 mark.

The restaurant is the work of famed French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, whose name adorns restaurants from Japan to London to New York City, and now, to Los Angeles. This gorgeous Waldorf Astoria buildout is Vongerichten’s first West Coast reveal, and it comes with a menu of hits from his other restaurants — plus a requisite LA patio.

From the tall main dining room touched off with wood accents and greenery to the jewel box bar with a wine room backdrop, this is the place for hotel guests and anyone familiar with the Jean-Georges name to pull up, pay the valet, and enjoy a pricey night out in Beverly Hills. In a city so attuned to casual dining, it’s clear that Jean-Georges and company are seeking a different clientele.
