While the Beverly Center continues its years-long construction project, the silver lining is that a few of the street level restaurants are finally open—among them, Michael Mina and Adam Sobel’s coastal Italian spot Cal Mare. Yes, it’s a mall restaurant, but it’s a really good one. (It’s big enough, too, so getting a table last-minute shouldn’t be a problem.) The menu leans heavily on seafood, but the wood-fired pizzas and house-made pastas shouldn’t be overlooked. For a decadent start to your meal, there’s no going wrong with one of the caviar and mozzarella pairings.
