Discovering the Food Scene in Beverly Hills: Best Restos & Cafes

If you live in California’s most renowned zip code, you will have access not only to top shopping experiences, gorgeous parks, and some of the most luxurious health and wellness establishments in the world, but you’ll also be able to choose from a seemingly endless list of wonderful restaurants. Whether you seek a world-renowned eatery headed by a celebrity chef or a trendy fusion restaurant with unexpected flavors and flair at every turn, you won’t be disappointed when you dine out in Beverly Hills. Here are some of the musts when you’re making your itinerary for amazing food in Beverly Hills

Steak 48 Beverly Hills 

9680 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90212


If attentive personal service, world-class steaks, and an inviting modern atmosphere sound appealing to you, Steak 48 Beverly Hills is the place to go. Put on your evening wear (Steak 48 has a dress code to ensure everyone has a memorable experience), and get ready to be wowed as you sip on a California Citrus martini or Basil Cucumber Limeade. Once your table is ready, take your seat and start with an appetizer of Pacific yellowtail hamachi, Wagyu beef tartare, or chicken fried lobster tails. Follow this up with an heirloom tomato salad or colossal shrimp cocktail before diving into a main entree of filet mignon, bone-in KC strip enhanced with a crab cake, or crispy shrimp served with creamy mac and cheese. Finish your meal with a slice of triple-layer key lime pie or a cookies and cream popcorn sundae.  

The Hideaway 

421 N Rodeo Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210


If you want a walk-in restaurant that serves approachable Mexican food for lunch, dinner, and late-night fare, you’ll love The Hideaway. Tucked into a bustling retail development, The Hideaway will make you feel like you’ve discovered a hidden gem. Stroll in for a three-course prix fixe lunch of corn empanadas for course one, short rib enchiladas for course two, and flan with lime zest for course three. Or, stop in from 3-6 pm for a happy hour Poblano Escobar drink and Wagyu flautas. Ready for a delicious dinner? The Hideaway has you covered here, too. Start with some chips and guac or crispy cauliflower, followed by grilled swordfish with mango slaw or a lobster avocado salad and a Paloma or margarita to drink

Nate n’ Al’s

414 N Beverly Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210


Though you may think that every restaurant in this area is as swanky as the zip code, you can actually find plenty of food in Beverly Hills that is fast, casual, and a great bang for your buck. If a traditional deli that serves impressive pastrami and corned beef alongside delicious breakfast items is on your wish list, you need to make time to eat at Nate n’ Al’s.


Started by partners Nate Rimer and Al Mendelson in 1945, this iconic deli focuses on quality ingredients and personal service that has garnered them a loyal fan base. Get your day started off right with a bagel n’lox, breakfast burrito, or French toast, or stop for a satisfying midday meal of chicken pot pie, turkey pastrami, or patty melt served with potato salad, fries, or onion rings. Nat n’ Al’s also serves up some deliciously sweet treats like chocolate cream pie, black & white cookies, and apple pie. Nate n’ Al’s also has a kid’s menu and a curated wine and beer menu.

Avra Esiatorio 

233 N Beverly Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210


With successful locations operating in New York for more than 15 years, the traditional Greek restaurant Avra Esiatorio has expanded into Miami and Beverly Hills.
