Thoughts of Beverly Hills may conjure up images of A-list celebrities lounging at cutesy cafés and exploring expensive boutiques with a trail of paparazzi behind them. Rodeo Drive and Canon Drive have become synonymous with living the good life, as hordes of handsome socialites flock to see and be seen.
Yet a block east from Beverly Drive lays the unpretentious and painstakingly gorgeous Boé Restaurant in the Crescent Hotel. Somewhat removed from the frenzied action, it’s the perfect destination for those looking to dine in semi-seclusion, sans paparazzi trails and large crowds crammed onto tiny restaurant patios.
In fact, Boé’s palm-lined patio is the best place to sit to watch pedestrians stroll by – even during crisp, chill nights, as an outdoor fireplace and heat lamps provide plenty of heat.
Chef Chanda Clark adds her distinctive touch to American classics and, in the process, creates new classics that are sure to be remembered in the future. The buffalo chicken skewers and the tuna tartare wontons are examples of her culinary ingenuity and must be ordered.
Next time you need to recuperate after a day of shopping, consider Boé Restaurant for a peaceful retreat amongst the chaos.
