The Beverly Hills dining scene is as renowned as its famous designer shopping district, and for good reason. World class eateries line the streets, featuring a wide variety of cuisines expertly prepared by award-winning chefs, attracting celebrities and the people who follow them, but celebrities aren’t the only ones enjoying the gourmet lifestyle at their doorsteps.
It is not unusual to catch a glimpse of a lucky four-legged friend dining alongside their companion at even the poshest Beverly Hills eateries. Restaurants like Coupa Café, The Farm at Beverly Hills, and Asakuma, among many others, welcome canine companions on their patios. The W Hotel in West Los Angeles even features a menu specially selected for dogs, giving a whole new meaning to the term “doggie bag”.
One would be wise to avoid letting their pampered pooch actually onto the table lest they wind up making headlines in the celebrity news circuit like a certain reality TV star did last month. The celebrity’s dogs took a special liking to a table at Toast, inspiring an investigation by the health department after the incident was caught on camera by paparazzi.
When Fido deserves a special treat, Beverly Hills residents have plenty of options thanks to the thriving doggie bakery business. Stores like Sparky’s, DOG Pet Boutique, and The Urban Pet all offer specially prepared gourmet dog treats and even elaborate birthday cakes formulated specially for dogs.
