LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Christina McLarty dines on a dime. This week, she even manages to do so in an elegant, classy, ritzy, upscale (okay, we’ll stop now) eatery in Beverly Hills!
No, really. Beverly Hills.
The restaurant is the acclaimed Villa Blanca, and if you’ve heard of it, it might be because of the food (it’s tops), the decor (it’s all white, hence the name) or its fab owners, namely the renowned restaurateurs Ken Todd and Lisa Vanderpump, the latter becoming something of a TV celebrity as well for being one of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” on Bravo.
The restaurant was designed to please the eyes and ears (painting and flowers abound) as well as the palate. The menu offers a fresh, modern take on classic European cooking. They also offer food with an Asian and Mediterranean flair. Fans love the baked king crab rolls, rock shrimp with asparagus risotto, seafood paella and cherry miso duck breast. Yum!
Plus, you’re bound to run into a celebrity or three (it’s one of Kim Kardashian’s fave places) while dining.
