Road Trip: A Staycation or Sunnyside Up in Beverly Hills with Breakfast for Dinner

Print This Post Print This Post


I’ve never been much of a breakfast for dinner person, but that may be changing.

Breakfast ingredients have been making their way into late night snacks, cocktails, entrées… even desserts. Last summer, I had an exquisite “appetizer” at Gilt, the 2-Michelin Star restaurant at the New York Palace Hotel in Manhattan known simply as “the egg,” a farm egg that was meticulously slow poached inside its shell. I still dream of that egg.

But you don’t have to go all the way to New York to enjoy breakfast for dinner. Right now breakfast-inspired dishes will be showing up at several Beverly Hills restaurants – just a quick dash over the hill. They include Oliverio at Avalon Beverly Hills, The Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel, Circa 55 at The Beverly Hilton, Café Rodeo at Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel, The Conservatory Grill at Montage Beverly Hills and in the restaurant at Thompson Beverly Hills.

Not only that, but they’ve even put together “cocktail pairings,” such as the Ostrich Egg Frittata with Porcini and Robioi at the Avalon Beverly Hills paired with a blood orange Bellini; the Smoked Sablefish with Roesti potatoes, shaved fennel, crème fraiche and caviar at The Polo Lounge with champagne, or the Thompson Beverly Hills’ Cheddar and potato pierogi with sautéed onion and bacon, bacon foam, and liquid egg, paired with a Satsuma Mimosa. Chef Suki of the Beverly Hilton is incorporating international flavors from six continents in his global “green eggs and ham” frittatas, and the Montage has a rustic corn beef hah with a poached egg and country mustard hollandaise.

Breakfast in Beverly Hills

While these dishes are worth waking up extra early for, through June 30 you can have them all day long, or at least during restaurant hours. In addition, nine Beverly Hills hotels are offering a free night stay with every first, second, or third night booked and complimentary daily breakfast for two. For that you get breakfast in bed.
