A Perfect Day in LA

Beverly Hills Hotel

Relax over lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where the Polo Lounge's garden is the perfect spot for a chopped salad.

Interior design whiz Barclay Butera, the author of Living in Style, offers up the perfect morning-to-night itinerary for dining in the City of Angels.

  • In the morning, I stop at Toast Bakery Cafe on West 3rd Street. Its breakfast—easy, laid-back and comforting—is a must. But keep your eye open for celebrities, such as the cast of Entourage.
  • Relax over lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where the Polo Lounge’s garden is the perfect spot for a chopped salad. Plus it has the best people-watching in town!
  • Midafternoon, kick back on the patio at The Ivy and sip a vodka gimlet finished off with great shopping on Robertson Boulevard. Just don’t trip over the paparazzi, who are always parked at the entrance.
  • The Chateau Marmont garden is the spot for evening cocktails. Celeb sightings at happy hour, what’s better than that?
  • The patio at Dominick’s on Beverly Boulevard is a great way to end the day—our taste of Little Italy.
  • And don’t forget the glamorous Cecconi’s and its covered terrace. A favorite of Hollywood’s British expat set, it attracts the likes of Victoria Beckham and Simon Cowell, who settle into the cozy back corners of the dining room.
