Experience the best of Beverly Hills with one day of living large.
Beverly Hills is a singular place. It’s a fact that to enjoy it the way it should be enjoyed, a sizeable amount of disposable income is necessary. Fine dining, fine shopping, fine service – it’s all waiting in Beverly Hills.
Begin with a bang having breakfast at The BLVD, a restaurant inside the Beverly Wilshire. This is no place to hurry, so take your time and enjoy a breakfast menu that features such items as Lazy Duvet crepes, and Thousand Count Belgian waffles.
After breakfast, plunge into shopping on Rodeo Drive and environs, one of the most elegant shopping neighborhoods in the world. Here you’ll have a choice of everything from diamonds at Harry Winston to high fashion at Christian Dior.
Lunch is the iconic see-and-be-seen eateries, Spago. This flagship Wolfgang Puck restaurant serves up has an open kitchen lets you see the cooks work it. Try to grab a spot on the courtyard patio. Reservations a must.
For a change of pace, and a respite from price tags, visit serene, green Greystone Mansion and Park. Tour the park grounds and the 55-room Tudor mansion was built in 1928. Greystone Mansion and Park was placed on the Registry of Historic Places in 1976; it’s the largest private estate in the history of Beverly Hills.
If a pick me up is in order, head over to The Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel, for their celebrated afternoon tea service (offered on Fridays and Saturdays). You’ll have a choice of seating indoors or on the sunny patio.
The last stop on the day’s itinerary is a substantial one, dinner at Wolfgang Puck’s CUT, a steak house was designed by architect Richard Meier, the master behind the Getty. Here you’ll order steaks grilled over hardwood and charcoal then finished under a 1,200 degree broiler. Break the bank with True Japanese 100% Wagyu Beef from Saga Prefecture, Kyushu, Japan – six ounces of filet mignon that will set you back $135.
