Dinner tonight in (or near) Beverly Hills

My husband an I have booked a room at the Beverly Wilshire at the last moment for tonight (he's helping me set up very early in the a.m. for an event at the hotel). I would love some recommendations for a great place to eat dinner. It needn't be fancy, or a headliner, just somewhat quiet (we are both feeling a little under the weather), with great service and good, warm, filling food . . . the kind you want on a rainy night.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

  1. I'm afraid that the place you suggest does not exist except maybe at a a 2 star Michelin in Paris. You might enjoy Ingrid on Big Santa Monica Blvd. It is walking distance from your hotel. Good food, amateur service but nice people at "reasonable" prices. Small funky place. Enjoy.

    1. Check out
      Il Piccolino on Robertson
      Amarone on Sunset

        Walk up to Nate'N Als for great chicken soup.

      2. Il Piccolino is great. Was there last night. A more subdued choice and more reasonably priced is Il Forno Caldo just up the street from the hotel on Little Santa Monica and Roxbury. Very good Italian in a quiet cozy setting. Great lamb shank, roast chicken and pizzas. Can't go wrong.

          1. I also think Nook might be fun. A neighborhood cafe with good, solid food. Nice atmosphere. Fair amount of comfort food on the menu.
