Good Restaurants near Sofitel on Beverly Blvd

NE Hound here....I will be at the Sofitel in two weeks with my wife for a long weekend (Fri-Mon). Looking for good places for lunch and dinner. Heard mixed things re Jar, Il Picollino, Della Terra, and Capanile. Lunch places should have great salads and sandwiches. Open to most cuisine and price points. Outdoor dining would be nice but not mandatory. Thanks.

          I'm trying to figure out how the Polo Lounge is considered near the Sofitel.

      2. I like to sit on the patio at Pane e Vino. It is a nice place to have dinner, and it is only a few blocks away.

          Thanks. Menu looks good and I like the outdoor space.

        2. Ago for italian
          Comme Ca for French
          I like Wokano which is nearby for Sushi / Chinese but it won't blow your socks off

          Some other upscale restaurants are nearby - Koi, Fogo de Ciao (national chain but upscale and good IMHO).

          Also depends on how far you want to drive - lots of places around Rodeo Drive a few miles away, for instance - Il Pastaio & Nic's are two good restaurants in that area that won't break the bank, and if you want to break the bank, there's a Maestro's, Wolfgang Puck's "Cut" steakhouse, The Blvd. in the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Wolfgang Puck's Spago, Grill on the Alley, among others.

          176 North Canon Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210

          Il Pastaio Restaurant
          400 N Canon Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210

          Koi Restaurant
          730 N La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90069

            A couple of "casual" suggestions that are very close to the Sofitel are Chili Addiction and Vito's for excellent NY style pizza and great calzone too.

            Vito's Pizza
            846 N La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90069

            Chili Addiction
            408 N La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048

          2. Thanks, everyone. Really appreciate all the suggestions....
