In Hollywood, everybody’s a somebody. And lord knows, they need a place to eat. Whether it be to negotiate contracts or “give notes” on a screenplay, these five restaurants are industry hot spots for power lunches.
1 The Polo Lounge
The Polo Lounge at the legendary Beverly Hills Hotel has been a favorite lunch place for generations of stars and Hollywood deal-makers. While guests enjoy an afternoon meal seated either indoors or outdoors, they are treated to piano accompaniment and light jazz on the patio during the summer. The menu boasts a plethora of choices perfect for lunch, from the Maine lobster and mango salad to the monk fish coconut curry.

3 The Blvd
The Blvd at the Beverly Wilshire is a chic dining location perfect for a power lunch. Modern and sophisticated, the restaurant offers lively outdoor seating overlooking Rodeo Drive, as well as indoor seating and a distinctive lounge and bar.

4 The Roof Garden
Tucked away on the roof of The Peninsula awaits the Roof Garden, a relaxed and casual dining destination that serves Naturally Peninsula cuisine. The mouth-watering menu provides lunch options—such as the pepper-rubbed ahi tuna loin or citrus-marinated prawns—perfect for a healthy lifestyle, not to mention made with local organic produce. Now you can enjoy a power lunch that tastes good and makes you feel good.
