A Summery French Riviera-Style Restaurant Emerges From the Hills of Bel-Air

The new Jolie opens today at the Glen Centre

The Glen Centre is tucked way up in the curves above Beverly Hills, a micro-economy all its own with room for a few restaurants, a post office, and a Starbucks. As of today, it’s also home to Jolie, a rather glamorous new French bistro modeled on the plush decadence and fine foods of the French Riviera circa the 1960s.


Inside, the restaurant is awash in marble and dark blue tones. A large skylight keeps the place airy during the day, while dim bulbs and brassy details make the room much moodier in the evenings. There’s a full cocktail bar and broad complement of French wines to match the food, which focuses on seafood, salads, charcuterie, and other light-ish fare.
