AND YOU DISCOVER THE REAL BEVERLY HILLS
he most unique thing about Beverly Hills is that it is a city within a city, a small community with sculptured, landscaped streets, incredible shopping, hills covered with trees ... and all set within the greater Los Angeles area.
Finding just the right spot in the city is up to you, but no mat-
ter which neighborhood you settle upon, you will  nd a small, close-knit community that respects privacy and security. Sit in one of the trendy sidewalk cafes and you are likely to spot several people you know by name, or see someone in jeans and a T-shirt who ends up being an A-List celebrity.
So, if you are a  rst-time visitor to Beverly Hills, after you have taken in the fashion on Rodeo Drive or the mansions up in the hills, get to know the city like a native. Check out all of the neighborhoods.

For that perfect combination of elegance and cuisine, Beverly Hills o ers a variety of 5-star hotel dining rooms to chose from led by its  agship establishment— the century old Beverly Hills Hotel and its renowned Polo Lounge.
 ere’s the hip European vibe of Canon Drive with its sidewalk eateries, the Wallis Annenberg Performing Arts Center and the new dining concept Avec Nous, taking over the signature restaurant of the Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills.

 ere are so many menus to choose from in Beverly Hills, whether you’re in the mood for farm-to-table California cuisine, Northern or traditional Italian, classic French, Spanish tapas, spicy  ai, chili-rich Mexican, Mandarin or Hong Kong Chinese, meaty Brazilian, curry-rich Indian, Austrian schnitzel, native Venezuelan, pho from Vietnam, fresh seafood or that perfectly prepared slice (or chop) of USDA prime beef. {Continued on page 82}
