Our ‘Around Town’ Series on where to eat, shop, and play—the Partners Trust way.
The talented team of Jenny and Lee has presided over the Los Angeles real estate scene with great enthusiasm. Together, they specialize in residential—as well as a fair amount of off-market sales—and both live with their families in Beverlywood. Although the Partners Trust Beverly Hills office is located nearby their homes, the pair likes to meet up at new, buzzed-about restaurants in town so they can share the experiences with their clients. Let’s see what places and activities already top their list.
Indulge in a pleasant walk (bring the dogs!) into Cheviot Hills to get the blood flowing while enjoying the beautiful, largely traditional-style homes. Don’t forget to pause and breathe in the scenic landscape—the town received its name from the gently rolling hills that are reminiscent of the Cheviot Hills between England and Scotland.
Coffee Fix & Breakfast Nook
There’s a new local coffee shop in town, Urban Grind on Robertson Blvd, that offers frothy lattes and delicious breakfast burritos. If it’s Thursday or Friday, head to The Bagel Factory to pick up some fresh bagels and a heavenly loaf of Challah.
Bring the Kids
If you have young children in tow, there is always a crowd at Irving Schachter Park, a gated gathering spot with play equipment geared towards the youngest of explorers. Or opt for more variety at the Cheviot Hills Park where they have tennis courts, a public pool, and large recreation center with plenty of sports and art programs.
The meeting point between National Boulevard & Motor Avenue is home to a small hub of shops and restaurants, including D.L. Rhein, a boutique store and design studio that is gorgeous inside and out. The owner’s collection of stunning products includes handmade belts, jewelry, and housewares. If it’s fresh produce you’re after, you can’t miss the local Farmer’s Market held on Sundays.
Walk or drive to S. Beverly Drive for a shopping experience filled with more recognizable brands like Anthropologie, The North Face, and Lululemon.
Helmed by chef and owner Christian Royere, who is a native of Aix en Provence, France, A Food Affair is as authentic as they come. The quaint space serves French cuisine like Roasted Bone Marrow, Boeuf Bourguignon de Maman, and Escargot. Another excellent choice is Bella Roma for casual Italian, specifically Roman cuisine featuring pizzas and pastas “a mano” (by hand).
