I love food and a good drink. So when I received an invite to the relaunch of the Estérel Restaurant, I had to say yes.

Thursday night I went to the Estérel Restaurant relaunch at the Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. I brought a friend with me so she could experience it as well. I had been to the hotel before for an event but never went to the restaurant.

As we entered we walked through iron gates into this garden-like atmosphere. I told my friend it felt like the “Secret Garden”. There was a bar set up and plants everywhere. Along the walls were mirrors and chairs surrounding the place. We made our way to the bar to get the signature drink of the evening. If I remember it was a grapefruit juice with basil and vodka. We made our way to seats and sat in these big chairs. I called it my “Game of Thrones” chair. Waiters brought around some small bites for us to taste. My favorite was this zucchini dish we tried.

You can dine inside or outside. The garden area was too pretty to pass up. On cold days though you can go inside which is very nice as well.

Estérel is a coastal region of Var and Alpes-Maritimes in Provence, France. The restaurant’s name is inspired by the fact that Estérel shares a similar landscape and terrain with the beautiful Southern California coast. In keeping with that concept, Estérel offers a splendid selection of fresh, seasonal cuisine, capturing the culinary soul of the Mediterranean. Using locally sourced and organic ingredients, Chef Boroda masterfully blends French and California cuisines into one that is uniquely his own at Estérel Restaurant.
