The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills: It is one of Beverly Hills’ most treasured shops and regularly tops any list of best gourmet food or cheese shops in Los Angeles. While known for stocking hundreds of rare and hard-to-find cheeses, they also offer charcuterie, caviar, truffles, and unique takes on kitchen staples like Himalayan fine pink salt, French lavender honey and black currant vinegar. A few lucky patrons may even have a chance to visit the store’s secret wine cellar, which consists of 12-seat, private tasting room.
Héritage Fine Wines: French owner Jordane Andrieu set up shop in Beverly Hills after six years in Burgundy. His background has led to a beautifully curated wine selection of organic and biodynamic bottles as well as rights to be the only US retailer for many labels from French regions such as Burgundy and the Loire Valley or Languedoc Roussillon.
Jean-Georges: With restaurants that adorn the global landscape from New York City to Japan, Jean-Georges at Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills is the first West Coast venture by Michelin-star and celebrity chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Toast to the finer things in life with the restaurant’s extensive Champagne menu, which boasts one of the largest collections of Champagne in the city. Selections date back to the 1980’s and a number of vintage Cristal are sent directly to the restaurant from distinguished Champagne houses, including Dom Perignon.
Maude: The first solo restaurant of celebrity chef Curtis Stone, Maude offers a chef’s table experience in the heart of Beverly Hills. Four different wine-inspired menus are introduced throughout the year to the 24-seat restaurant featuring a menu based on the Maude team’s research and travel. Past and upcoming tasting menu inspirations hail from wine regions including Rioja in Spain, Burgandy in France, Central Coast in United States and Piedmont in Italy.
The Polo Lounge: The wine list at The Polo Lounge offers a thoughtful wine collection featuring hard to find and older vintages. Since 1941, the iconic restaurant continues to be the place to see and be seen, considered as having one of the ‘Top 10 Wine Lists in LA’ by Gayot.com and given the ‘Award of Excellence’ by Wine Spectator every year from 2009 to 2018. Diners can choose from more than 250 different kinds of wines such as Burgundy, Bordeaux and Champagne from around the world and enjoy a glass at the very place where Hollywood’s greatest stars, from Charlie Chaplin to Elizabeth Taylor, have done the same while seated at their favorite tables.
Spago: Offering over 3,000 selections, Spago's wine list is not only one of the largest in Southern California, it’s one of the most comprehensive, and quite possibly the most extravagant. Guests can sip from bottles ranging in price anywhere from $35 to a $12,000. Since 2010, the famed restaurant has received five Grand Awards by Wine Spectator. After a massive renovation in 2012 by SoHo House designer Waldo Fernandez, the restaurant’s sleek and contemporary design is the perfect place to unwind and feel like a celebrity.
