What You'll Get
Diners gauge the quality of their steaks by examining their marbling, researching their farm of origin, and authenticating the serial number printed along their edges. Stop settling for counterfeit cuts with today’s Groupon to Beso Hollywood. Choose between the following options:

Celebrity owned and endorsed, Beso Hollywood has collected a spread of new dishes exclusively for the Groupon prix fixe menu, entertaining taste buds with a four-course parade of Latin flavors layered onto traditional steak-house fare. Crisp tortilla chips deliver the avocado-guacamole starter before diners dig into an appetizer of bibb or caesar salad, grilled squid with chorizo and queso fresco, or chicken kebab paired with tortilla fattoush. The chili-rubbed skirt steak arrives for the entree course from mysterious lands behind the menu’s boundaries, and yellowtail fillets tempt palates in conjunction with salsa verde. Sautéed mushrooms, baby squash, and asparagus lend rich texture to the vegetarian paella’s mélange of saffron rice and hearty flora. Piquant cabrales blue cheese blends into a creamy treat atop a succulent cut of sirloin steak. Beso churros batter sweet teeth with rich caramel, and the Chocolate Kiss fudge cake seals meals with a cocoa-tinged smooch instead of bland lipstick residue.
Crystal-beaded chandeliers drip from Beso’s high ceilings, and white curtains along the walls offset dark floors, chairs, pillars, and tables. Leather-lined seats surround each table, and a row of sleek, curved booths hugs one side of the elegant, modern dining room. Patrons belly up to a white-topped bar, an island surrounding the mixologist on duty, who can easily sling inventive drinks or answer requests for Tom Collins’s phone number.

About Beso Hollywood
With overhead chandeliers dripping with crystals, plush booths wrapped around candlelit tables, and hand-painted walls, it’s hard not to get distracted inside of Beso. Luckily, there's a totem for those caught adrift in the atmosphere—an open kitchen that a reviewer from USA Today could only describe as “dramatic.” Executive Chef Angel Estrada oversees his exposed workspace as he and his staff fire sustainably farmed Black Angus Natural beef and stoke a wood-burning oven to heat fresh seafood. They fold these ingredients into a menu of dishes that, like Shakespeare's famous Spanglish sonnets, flicker with Latin influence: shrimp in garlic sauce, skirt steak served with tortilla fattoush, and Australian lamb rack served with fingerling potatoes and a rosemary-pepita spread. The drink menu mimics its food-filled cousin's international flair, flush with Brazilian caipirinhas, margaritas, and sangria.
