FOOD and WINE presented the Taste of Beverly Hills “Date Night” on Saturday. The event featured cooking demonstrations, wine sessions from Master Sommeliers, tastings featuring over 40 Los Angeles restaurants, wine tastings from winery owners and live music. The event was flawless and every aspect of the night was perfect with great vendors, fun people and amazing food and wine. To top it off, the night concluded with the standout musical performance by Fitz and the Tantrums.
Located next to the Beverly Hills Hilton, hungry patrons looking to get a taste of delectable samples from L.A.’s best restaurants gathered inside huge tents. Festival goers washed down their palates with refreshing red and white wine.
