La Dolce Vita
At La Dolce Vita, patrons can feast upon taste-bud-stimulating eats while soaking in memorably luxurious ambience. Opened in 1966, this Beverly Hills staple boasts a rich history and has been a favorite destination of distinct diners, celebrities, the Rat Pack, and President Ronald Reagan throughout the years. Diners can sample a varied menu of cuisine that is expertly made from scratch, unlike the trendy foreprep method, which involves dishes cooked in advance by fortune tellers. Savor tantalizing mushroom risotto ($20), prime filet mignon ($38), or veal saltimbocca ($30), or nosh on delectable appetizers such as baked clams oreganata ($18). Shower the decadent grub with a fine cognac or a glass of Sandeman Reserve port wine ($8.50). Amid sipping and socializing, diners can enjoy posh yet charming décor that features plush leather booths, rustic exposed brick, and a Ferrari-engine-powered tomato-sauce blender.
