BEVERLY GROVE, LOS ANGELES –
Nearly as exclusive as Rodeo Drive but with a younger and hipper vibe, Robertson Boulevard features a two-block stretch of exclusive boutiques and restaurants that has become a shopping mecca for young Hollywood and reality star wannabes.
Visitors are almost certain to catch a starlet or two flitting in and out of uber-trendy boutiques like Kitson, Diavolina, and Intermix, not to mention the cavalcade of lithe girls mimicking the “who wore it better pages” from the supermarket celeb rags.
Beautiful people aside, the boulevard has plenty of other eye candy to offer, mostly in the form of high-end autos growling up and down the street, or parked in front of the paparazzi-staked Ivy restaurant – LA’s quintessential “let’s do lunch” spot.
Although power brokers gather on the patio to see and be seen, other restaurants like the swanky Asian-fusion Chaya Brasserie and the chic deli joint Cuvee are also good bets for stargazers.
Arguably the hippest shopping district in ultra-fashion conscious LA, Robertson Boulevard is the perfect destination for both serious shoppers and the merely curious looking to enjoy a slice of celebrity life.
Affluent shoppers, celebrities, showbiz types, paparazzi, and some tourists, mostly female, 20s to 50s.
Many dining options on Robertson Boulevard and adjacent streets, including Italian eatery Il Piccolino (350 North Robertson Boulevard), traditional American staple Newsroom Café (120 North Robertson Boulevard), and Jack n' Jill's Too (8738 West Third Street) for patio brunching.
Restaurants range from reasonable to expensive. Retail stores on the pricey side.
Trendy shopping attire: designer jeans and heels, cute tops, and light dresses for girls, fashionable t-shirts or button-downs for guys.
Late morning or afternoon.
Cecconi’s Italian restaurant (8764 Melrose Avenue) is an “it” spot for high-end dining and celebrity sightings.
