    Chow down (eat) most fabulously in the L.A area

    by marinarena Written Nov 4, 2012

    In the greater Los Angeles area, Beverly Hills is arguably the best city for having a meal. Now, you have to bare with me. There should be like a thousand tips on Restaurants on my Bev's pages.
    I have tried less than 10 places here, but many include chain restaurants (ie Cheesecake Factory) located through L.A county, regionally in the west and throughout the U.S. Believe me, there are numeous fantastic and unique eateries in the 90210 city.

    BH has an official Restaurant Row, along La Cienega Blvd from Wilshire to Beverly Blvd, which features 3-star The Sticking Rose (all garlic menu), pricier steakhouses like Lawry's Prime Rib and Morton's and other. The one mile stretch of premiere restaurants is a spot to catch celebrities and for being seen and amongst Hollywood industry types.

    Off Restaurant Row, there are standout options in the Rodeo Dr area, and elsewhere. Well attended 4-star favorites include Crustacean (Asian-Euro fusion), Matsuhisa (Japanese), Boucho Bistro (French-inspired), Mr Chow, Cut (Wolfgang Puck steakhouse), Benihana(Japanese) and perhaps the most famous dining spot- Spago (super upscale American).

    For mid-range priced eateries, top BH establishments include Jack n Jills and The Farm of Beverly Hills (both upscale American), Nate n Al's (deli) and Versailles (Cuban). If you want to have a very Beverly Hills experience and eat simple American, head to the Beverly Hills Diner (pictured) along (you guessed it) Beverly Dr.

    Though not a mecca for classic fast food, you can find it in Beverly Hills- from scattered taco joints, to several fast sushi and various Asian-inspired stops. Though not officially in BH, the following establishments are baby steps off BH: Subway (1270 S La Cienega Blvd ), Pizza Hut (8947 W Pico Blvd ), KFC (1550 S La Cienega), Jack in the Box( 8605 W Pico Blvd)

    Take a stroll Euro Style

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beverly Hills is a very walkable part of the greater L.A. area. City streets are fairly leveled, made for less stress on the heels. There are some steeper parts, like the hill of fancy shops leading to the famous steps that lead down to Wilshire Blvd. To go a bit off the beaten, tourist trap Rodeo Dr path, veer on (North) Santa Monica Blvd and onto more neighborhood streets like Dayton, Camden and Rodeo.

    A Trolley Tour of Beverly Hills!

    by jumpingnorman Written Apr 8, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A wonderful way to experience Beverly Hills is through a 40 minute open-air trolley tour of the elegant shops of Rodeo Drive, stately neighborhoods, celebrity homes and famous and historic landmarks. However, when it is raining, no trolleys are to be found! Tours depart from the corner of Rodeo Drive and Dayton Way in Beverly Hills. This is where the little pedestrian lane, Via Rodeo Dr. begins.

    Winter Holiday Season, November 23 - December 30
    Tuesday through Sunday, Hourly on the hour, 11 am to 4 pm

    There is also actually a company called California Trolley where you can rent a trolley which can seat up to 27 people and you can also decorate for weddings or special occassions.
