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.

Second Animal, probably the best in town right now.
Pane e Vino is walking distance, as is Chaya Brasserie - both are consistently very good with great atmosphere - great for lunch, both.

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.
