Food has long played a role in the runway, but it’s time to take fashion to the table. With Beverly Hills already home to Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura’s first North American location and an ongoing stream of restaurant openings attracting culinary greats, the 90210 postcode is the place to see food and fashion come together.
A twist on the traditional ‘restaurant week,’ Beverly Hills’ Cuisine & Couture: Fashion Week pays homage to the destination’s biggest fashion brands and world-renowned culinary talent.
From September 7 to October 15, numerous restaurants across the 5.71-square-mile city will feature culinary delights ‘dressed’ in fall trends – think pops of red and dark romantic touches of black and white.
For a little taste of Fashion Week, here’s what Beverly Hills visitors and locals can expect:
Tatel’s Chica de Ayer Cocktail
Featuring Tres Generaciones Blanco, Lo-Fi Gentian, and egg whites, this cocktail is inspired by Spanish luxury brand Loewe for its refreshed, classic taste and delicate artisanal presentation with a tiny floral finish.
THEBlvd’s Black Truffle Gnocchi
Made with truffle cream sauce and parmesan cheese topped with black truffle snow, drawing from the dark romantic touches predicted for fall.
CUT’s Live King Crab ‘Louie’ Cocktail
This decadent dish, with Hokkaido uni, calamansi, avocado, and a horseradish emulsion, evokes pops of red found in this season’s fall fashions.
MR CHOW’s Pink Water Dumplings and Highroller Cocktail
The hot pink color of these dumplings, filled with lobster and shrimp, is wrapped in a thin layer of gluten-free dough and pays homage to the likes of Chanel and Valentino. Pair it with the bright pink Highroller tequila cocktail reminiscent of Chanel’s Chance Tendre Eau de Parfum.
The Hideaway’s Paloma Especial
A Cocchi Americano’s twist on the traditional Paloma cocktail celebrates the merging of streetwear and Italian fashion houses seen at Fashion Week.
Spago’s Camellia Flower ‘Vacherin’ Dessert
Drawing inspiration from Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel, and the iconic white camellia flower, the dessert captures the black and white motif with black currant sorbet, a touch of black honey, blackberries, crisp white camellia flower meringue and a poppyseed marble marzipan cake nodding to Karl’s German background.
Espelette Beverly Hills’s Langoustine Papillote
Chef Benjamin dresses the langoustine for this dish like the act of getting dressed for the runway in a statement silhouette. The orange and green dots on the plate also resemble the bold colors anticipated for this year’s fall collections.
Fogo De Chao’s Samba Squeeze Martini
Inspired by this season’s fashion palettes on the runway, the martini combines both color and flavor with its zestful blood orange and the mildly sweet taste of guava, along with the honeyed flavors of the St. Germaine Elderflower liquor topped with fresh blueberries.
Crustacean Beverly Hills
The boozy beverage with hibiscus-infused tequila, pamplemousse, maraschino, and pineapple honors female designer Anna Sui – adored by the Asian females that lead Crustacean – and her love of bright pink colors.
