Beverly Hills Barbeque.
Texas and Kansas City are hotspots for barbeque, but this summer, the hottest spot is the rooftop garden at the Peninsula Beverly Hills. The Roof Garden Weekend Barbeque offers a menu of gourmet goodies straight off the grill, available a la carte or as a prix-fixe menu. Start with smart skewers, gourmet sausages, or spice rubbed pork; lighten up with grilled seafood, or even vegetarian fare; better yet, opt for a Grilled Maine Lobster. Entrees are paired with delicious baked Okinawa sweet potatoes, and a southwestern pepper and corn salad for a pop of traditionalism. Desserts are served family style. And finish out the day as it turns into dusk with refreshing cocktails. Valet parking is complimentary; reservations required. For more information, call 310-551-2888.
