Celebrity chef Todd English takes on Hollywood, collaborating with television star Eva Longoria at this stylish Latin-theme restaurant. Glittering chandeliers dangle over a dramatic scene: young hipsters sipping mojitos at a marble bar and couples sliding into cozy booths with a view of the prominent exhibition kitchen. Begin with one of the inventive appetizers, such as the artichoke guacamole or the addictive crispy ribs with apple slaw. For the main course, move on
to a steak with chimichurri sauce or jumbo sea scallops with pomegranate sauce. Churros with chocolate and fried-banana splits make for the sweetest finale. Beso (the name means "kiss" in Spanish) is pure Hollywood, but because it doesn't take itself too seriously, it adds plenty of fun to the legendary neighborhood.
