The Blvd – Beverly Hills, CA
There’s no better place in Beverly Hills to eat well and have the best people watching right in front of you. Located in the timeless Beverly Wilshire at the tail end of Rodeo Drive, The Blvd comes with a high price tag but it’s THE quintessential Beverly Hills experience.
Almost every time I’m there I get the Seafood Salad. It’s changed over the years but is never disappointing to me and comes with the highest quality of seafood one would expect for a $33 salad. My husband started with the Lobster Salad which was divine. I especially loved the green apple. It added such a lovely acidity and made the dish perfectly balanced. For his entrée he got the Veal Schnitzel…whoa…I had a tinge of order envy but luckily he was nice enough to give me a couple of bites. The veal was pounded thin and cooked to perfection. So tender and full of flavor…this was definitely a success. My only advice is to add a good squeeze of lemon juice on top. It brightens the dish and makes it not as heavy tasting.
Just to name a few, Bob Green, Mariel Hemingway and André Leon Talley were all dining there the last time I was there for lunch. Does it get much better than that?! Go!
