Growing up in Los Angeles, my parents would take me to Rodeo Drive sometimes to buy our relatives in Japan some luxury items. As a child, I was always intimidated by the people there, and thought that everything was unattainable. For my 16th Birthday, my parents bought me my first Tiffany’s Necklace on Rodeo Drive. My parents took commemorative photos of me in front of the store by the fountain and on the stairs of Via Rodeo! (this is a tourist hot spot)
I remember seeing the 208 Rodeo restaurant above me. I thought to myself, that one day I would love to eat at Tiffany’s. That was just a dream.
A few weeks ago, I got invited to eat at 208 Rodeo! Come to find out, you don’t need to be on a secret Tiffany’s VIP list (and it’s not a part of Tiffany’s but sits right above it!
The location looks a bit intimidating, since it’s on Via Rodeo surrounded by the most expensive stores in Beverly Hills, but once you get there – everyone is SO welcoming! 🙂
I made reservations for 11am. The brunch ends at 11:30am so if you want brunch make sure to get there before 11:25 am! The restaurant has THE PERFECT patio with a gorgeous view of Via Rodeo or the Beverly Wilshire hotel! I got to capture some amazing photos and I highly suggest taking some photos while you eat there! The outdoor patio is a must!
My friend and I ordered Crab Cakes Benedict, mimosas, lattes, some French Toast, the yogurt parfait, and Bagels. (I know we eat a lot but I like to try a bunch of stuff when I go to a new place! EVERYTHING was delicious – we really loved the Crab Cakes Benedict! 🙂
The service was great! Everything was so clean, and the staff was just so kind and attentive! I loved it and I want to go again, but this time, I want to bring my parents!
