Journey our adopted Labradorable boy just turned two and half years old. It was time for a celebration. WATCH! Dinner Out Journey was comfortably ensconced in our suite watching his favorite, The Disney Channel, when we made the great escape to dine at one of the best restaurants in the city, Livello. images-2 images-3 imagesBest part of Chef’ Zack Gochin’s cuisine is the immersion of fresh, local, organic ingredients from the Beverly Hills Farmers Market and other locations. Inspired by Italy and some of the freshest homemade pastas, we dined on a 5 course tasting menu served  elegantly on narrow white porcelain, each dish prepared with the freshest vegetables free-range  hormone- free meats and specially sourced seafood. And if dinner wasn’t enough of a treat, breakfast on the quiet outdoor patio surrounded by the sounds of the waterfall and lush green scenery made our stay so complete… to the point we booked a second night ( and we were lucky to get the same room) overlooking Burton Way and the city. The second night we took advantage of the patio and sat with Journey beside a burning fireplace getting a double feng shui affect. It’s amazing how adaptable our pets are to city life when they can hear falling water and gaze into a fire. images-1No Pool Pass for Journey Luxury comes in all shapes and dimensions The pool and terrace at L’Ermitage is the perfect size, so intimate and inviting. Unless you are a sunbather, many these days are not which means you might just score the entire place to yourself. I did. Room service will deliver anything your heart desires. You can even pay the concierge to fetch a corned beef on rye from Nate and Al’s famous deli which is only a few blocks away. While I finished reading,  a Los Angeles Sunday Times article about 33 1/3.. I became totally engrossed with Ally Jane Grossan’s editorial opinions, while Jim got a massage! Lucky dog! Ko Massage ErmitgeKo Takata is a healer. He has been in practice for over 40 years. Journey patiently observes his master         Croen Jewel Flower BH           “The E’rmitage Hotel is the Crown Jewel of Boutique Luxury Hotels in the heart of iconic Beverly Hills.” James Chuda reflects on the beautiful and historic surrounds and pays homage to those whose imprints are ever lasting.

Jim stroll in the park Emitage OMG! Look who we ran into… Suzanne LaCock Browning…one of the most devoted animal activists in the city.Suzanne and Journey Ermitage               Journey gave her a hug and his his pawograph. Bon Chien! images Editor’s Notes: And far away from the maddening crowds I returned home to write this article, looked out my window and found a couple of Journey’s friends that want to go along for the ride next time we visit L’Ermitage a Viceroy Property in Beverly Hills.
