The renowned Peninsula Beverly Hills recently debuted Le Petit Belvedere, bringing the charm of a Parisian bistro to the heart of Beverly Hills. In partnership with Lanvin and Laurent Perrier Champagne, Le Petit Belvedere provides an antidote to those, like me, who long for the food, flavours, fashion and essence of France.

Drawing from memories inspired by time spent in Paris, Normandy and Burgundy, Executive Chef David Codney has created a menu that pays homage to the history and romance of French cuisine.

Menu highlights include Saffron Risotto Croquettes, Moules Frites, Steak au Poivre, and of course, the Croque Monsieur. Desserts make you salivate for Paris, especially the Grand Marnier Soufflé. Les Cocktails round out the menu with such signature delights as the French Connection, Negroni Blanc, and Eau de Lavande.

Dining in an enchanting al fresco setting, with French limestone fountains and an outdoor fireplace, I was transported to the romantic summer nights of Paris. The service is attentive and Covid-19 prepared. Enhancing the mood, a complimentary glass of Laurent Perrier champagne is offered to diners at 8pm every evening. When the Manager appeared and offered a toast, I felt as though I was at an intimate dinner party.

To further embrace the French experience, Lanvin has styled the arrival to the dining terrace with designs from their Summer 2020 collection.

Enjoying a California evening under the stars at a wonderful outdoor French brasserie, I experienced the best of both worlds.
