Da Vinci Ristorante
Da Vinci Restaurant—a long time hang-out of original Hollywood icons like Dean Martin and the Rat Pack—has been remade into a venue fit for today’s hot spot seekers and foodies. Complete with a renovated bar and lounge, Da Vinci boasts a renovated elegant European-style interior. In respect for the history of the original Da Vinci, Dean Martin’s original favorite booth remains in the corner for diners who want to enjoy their meals among an air of nostalgia Executive Chef Jason Fullilove’s culinary techniques are driven by his surroundings: only the freshest, in-season ingredients, most often found at nearby farmers markets and throughout lush Southern California. While he focuses on modern Mediterranean cuisine, Chef Fullilove refuses to be categorized. “The menu changes frequently,” he says. “Not only are we focusing on seasonal ingredients, but we’re adapting them to modern cooking techniques to increase the flavor and experience.” While many restaurants come and go in Los Angeles, Da Vinci has carved itself a niche in the Beverly Hills community as a neighborhood staple and iconic landmark. The restaurant allows diners to enjoy top-notch cuisine in an intimate setting.
