Located at Mandarin Oriental Residences Beverly Hills, Café Boulud Beverly Hills is expected to open to the public later this year
Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud announced additional details about his first West Coast restaurant, Café Boulud Beverly Hills, which is expected to open its doors to the public in late 2023 at the Mandarin Oriental Residences Beverly Hills, a new boutique condominium .
The Café Boulud brand is especially meaningful for Chef Boulud, as it is named after the original Café Boulud started on his family’s farm outside of Lyon, France by his great-grandparents. Chef Boulud’s rendition of this heritage is focused on four inspirations: La Tradition – the classic dishes of French cooking; La Saison – the seasonal specialties of the market; Le Potager – the vegetable garden; and Le Voyage – the exotic flavors of the world’s great cuisines.
The Mandarin Oriental Residences Beverly Hills, located on 9200 Wilshire Boulevard, is the first new condominium in Beverly Hills in a decade, and comprises a boutique offering of 54 private residences. Featuring the legendary services and amenities of Mandarin Oriental, the property marries five-star service with the added security and privacy of an exclusive residence, creating a new paradigm in luxury condominium living.
“I have been visiting Los Angeles for more than 30 years and have many fond memories from filming a tv series, ‘After Hour,’ with chefs and restaurants across the city many years ago. I always teased Wolfgang that if he opened a restaurant in New York, I would open a restaurant in LA. After the opening of Cut, this is a promise delivered,” said Chef Daniel Boulud. “Café Boulud Beverly Hills will be able to take advantage of the fresh, vibrant market, which I am looking forward to sourcing local produce from and is the foundation for the City’s thriving culinary scene.”
“California’s culinary scene has exploded in the last several years. Having lived in LA for many years, I am very happy to have the opportunity to open one of our fine casual restaurants,” said Sebastien Silvestri, CEO of Dinex. “9200 Wilshire is a one-of-a-kind opportunity with world-class partners, including SHVO, Mandarin Oriental and Marc Ange, and we’re excited to be a part of it.”
“Daniel and I have been close friends for 20 years, during which time I’ve been a regular guest at his various restaurants and had the pleasure of enjoying his impeccable cuisine. He’s one of the most talented chefs in the world and we are delighted to be bringing his unique culinary experiences to the residents at our property, as well as the Beverly Hills community, for the first time,” said Michael Shvo, Chairman & CEO of SHVO.
Chef Boulud will also operate a private dining service, Boulud Prive, exclusive to the residences and the rooftop pool terrace at the Mandarin Oriental Residences Beverly Hills as well as its sister property the Mandarin Oriental Residences Fifth Avenue.
The restaurant in Beverly Hills will be designed by the renowned artistic director Marc Ange with Cafe Boulud Beverly Hills joining existing establishments in Toronto, the Bahamas, Blantyre and New York City.
