Small Wedding Lunch In Beverly Hills

I'm getting married at the Beverly Hills courthouse on Thursday, with my parents and inlaws-to-be from out of town attending. Looking for a nice place nearby for lunch--classy but not corporate, expensive but not snooty or negligent towards common-folk. Preferably American or French cuisine. Thanks!

  1. Congrats on your upcoming marriage. I think that The Grill on the Alley would suit your needs.

    1. Spago would certainly work nicely.

      1. If you're willing to travel just a little bit further, the Hotel Bel Air would be ideal. It's beautiful and truly a special event kind of place.

        1. re: perk

          Oh yes, definitely Hotel Bel Air. Love that idea.

          1. re: fat parish

            I agree with Hotel Bel Air. It is the perfect place for your special day! It is beautiful, romantic and the food is great!

        2. Congrats! I also like the idea of Spago on the Patio. And, they have a wonderful pastry chef, Sherry Yard, and her crew, and they cuold make you a wonderful cake. Call asap for your reservation so that you can hopefully get the time that you want. There's also a new restaurant in the Beverly Wilshire Hotel (on Wilshire, at Rodeo) called "Boulevard" (I think). I haven't been there, but I know two people who have and they enjoyed it a lot. Let us know where you select and who catches the bouquet.

          1. If you can get into Italian, Il Cielo on Third St. is a beautiful setting. Food and service used to be great, but I haven't been there in quite a while. Also on Third, but in Los Angeles, is La Terza. Not far, on Melrose, is Angeli Caffe. Congrats, and good dining.
