LA's Best Places for a Champagne Toast. Come to Beverly Hills for New Years Eve!


Rosé on La Cienega boasts a French Riviera vibe

 
  Champagne is about more than special occasions

The Belvedere at The Peninsula Beverly Hills
We can’t resist this Beverly Hills fine-dining institution’s Perrier-Jouët Champagne brunch on Sundays, complete with off-white tablecloths, brilliant floral arrangements, and a dining room peppered with movie moguls. 9882 S. Santa Monica Blvd., Beverly Hills, 310-975-2736; peninsula.com

Chateau Marmont
There’s nothing like hitting this iconic Sunset Strip hot spot around dusk and popping the cork on a bottle of Veuve Clicquot with the whole glittering city spread at your feet. French royalty never had it as good as the Hollywood A-listers sipping bubbly here. 8221 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, 323-656-1010; chateaumarmont.com

The Hungry Cat
Is there a more perfect wine-food pairing than a fizzy glass of fine Champagne with a plate of fresh, briny oysters on the half-shell? Go coastal to order a dozen of the delicious bivalves with a bottle of 1996 Henriot Brut Champagne at this newest edition of the upscale seafood mini-chain. 100 W. Channel Road, Santa Monica, 310-459-3337; thehungrycat.com

The Little Door
A romantic evening at this West 3rd Street classic should always start with a bottle from the restaurant’s impressive list of Champagnes. Our suggestions include the delicate and palate-priming Taittinger Brut Réserve and the rich, medium-bodied Nicolas Feuillatte 1995 Palmes d’Or Brut, perfect for sipping throughout the night. 8164 W. 3rd St., LA, 323-951-1210; thelittledoor.com

Mélisse
Chef Josiah Citrin’s two-Michelinstar dining destination boasts an all-star list of Champagnes featuring bottles from some of the biggest names in French wine, including Ruinart, Charles Heidsieck, and Roederer Estate—not to mention Pol Roger’s famous Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill that will whet your appetite for a memorable meal. 1104 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica, 310-395-0881; melisse.com

Patina
The 50-page wine list at this Downtown fine-dining venue contains some Champagne gems, including a complex, golden Louis de Sacy Brut Grand Cru and Pommery’s fresh yet multilayered 1998 Cuvée Louise that’s perfect for quaffing right now. 141 S. Grand Ave., LA, 213-972- 3331; patinarestaurant.com

Rosé
Gorgeous starlets, French cuisine, globetrotting DJs—no this isn’t a description of a St-Tropez yacht party, it’s La Cienega’s newest boîte, Rosé. A night at the French Riviera-esque restaurant is the perfect reason to toast la belle France with a huge, thirst-quenching 20-ounce glass of Champagne (or wine) over ice (called Les Piscines de Pampelone). Just don’t break into “La Marseillaise.” 861 N. La Cienega Blvd., LA, 310-289-1294; roserestaurants.com

Son of a Gun
Sparkling wines—Champagne in particular—rule director of operations and beverage director Helen Johannesen’s wine list at the follow-up restaurant to Animal. We order the fresh and fruity Veuve Fourny & Fils Grande Réserve Brut Vertus Premier Cru when we’re feeling frivolous, and the sublime 1990 Moët et Chandon Cuvée Dom Pérignon when celebrating something special. 8370 W. 3rd St., LA, 323-782-9033; sonofagunrestaurant.com

Spago
The wine list at Wolfgang Puck’s legendary Beverly Hills restaurant is more than 100 pages long, so focus your attention on the Champagne section, where you’ll find the city’s most impressive vertical collection of vintage Krug Champagnes. 176 N. Canon Dr., Beverly Hills, 310-385-0880; wolfgangpuck.com
