Villa Blanca opened in 2009, before co-owner Lisa Vanderpump became famous for being one of more sane Real Housewives.
When I originally blogged about this place all those years ago, I called it Miami meets Versailles and the decor has not changed one bit.
It’s exactly the kind of restaurant you would think a real housewife would open.
And as much as I hate to use the F word…it’s kinda fabulous.
Let me update my previous assessment and call the decor Vegas in Heaven.
The interiors are stunning, you can’t take your eyes off them (or the facelifts). Just like her other restaurant, Sur, no expense has been spared.
Today’s lunch group included some of the usual suspects, including a visiting niece from Dubai (whom we wanted to choose a place which would impress) and I did my best not to control each and every thing they ordered.
Bit my tongue so long there were sores on it.
The food still is and always has been tasty and consistent. The usual lunch fare bumped up a notch in true Beverly Hills fashion.
My favorite thing to order are the Flatbread pizzas. They’re enormous and satisfying.
What I was not expecting was the simple but gratuitously gorgeous Villa Blanca Burger! Get that in my mouth now!
I will have to come back to that, pronto. For my post tummy tuck / nose job convalescent meal.
