The Los Angeles Times once described Mr. Chow as a restaurant that “defies all odds and remains an impossibly chic spot that still draws the rich, famous and well-heeled decades after opening.”
Located right in the heart of Beverly Hills, Mr. Chow Beverly Hills’ cuisine is a fine dining style sort of restaurant, with a dress code set as smart casual. No tux needed but don’t think you’re getting a table while wearing board shorts and flip-flops.
