"Gals day out kind of street"

There's a great mix of shopping and eating in this whole area, and S. Bev Drive is no exception. There aren't as many high end restaurants on Beverly as the surrounding streets but there are definitely some old standbys. The Cheesecake Factory is a restaurant that everybody loves to hate, but there are some seriously good menu items. And, the place is always packed for how much it gets knocked by the locals. And, the portions are so gargantuan, that you get two meals out of one. I have dreams about the Southwest Salad sometimes. Man, it is good. Nate and Al's is a diner that's right there. And, while I'm iffy on diners in general, it has been around forever and it has become a Beverly Hills staple for weekday breakfasts (there are just too many places to enjoy to actually go here for a weekend brunch). One of the places people die over for brunch, however, is also on South Beverly: The Farm. The place is really cute and it is always packed with Hollywood agent types. I'm not a huge fan of The Farm, but it remains pretty high up on the see and be seen list for Breakfast. Patty's Pizza is another South Beverly old-timer. The pizza is noted by most to be the best in the area and it really is pretty good. Plus, they do pizza by the slice which is actually a bit of a rarity in Los Angeles. Urth Caffe is yet another Los Angeles Staple to be found on Beverly. The show stopper one is on Melrose, but if you actually like the food (or the Boba) at Urth, then this one is definitely the quietest of all of them.
If South Beverly is a mecca for chains in the food and beverage department, it definitely pulls its weight in the boutique side of things. North Bev seems to hold all of the chain shopping like the Gap and Crate and Barrel (this is one of the biggest Crate and Barrels I have ever seen), but South Beverly has great boutiques such as Lisa Kline and Switch. They are overpriced, of course, but for a tourist, these shops can't be beat. They have such a great selection of designers, the spaces aren't scary or overwhelming like nearby Saks, et al. And, people seem to really love being able to walk around with a Lisa Kline bag. You want to boutique shop, ladies, South Bev is a great place to start. Oh, and 14 karats is on South Bev just north of Wilshire! It has some really great jewelry that is significantly less expensive than most other shops in the area. I still have diamond hoops from there that I got probably 10 years ago. They're great!
As far as living on this street, I would pass. There isn't anywhere to live until you get south of Wilshire and that's a little sketchy (especially for the price). I would just consider this street a place to go for lunch and shopping.

"A not so quiet place to dodge bullets."

In all fairness, I have never heard gunfire while visiting my ex-girlfriend on Beverlywood Street. However, I have been threatened with violence to my person and destruction to my car. I did nothing to provoke the threats. Fortunately nothing came of the angry words and the young lady found a new place to live where she feels more secure. I keep clear of that whole neighborhood.

"Lovely stuff serving restaurants"

Once you move ahead of Harlow avenue, you land onto the South Beverly drive. On its journey it intersects with many other streets, one among them is Wilshire boulevard. It is like any other residential areas in the States, spacious houses and small neighborhoods. Restaurants are plenty in number serving appetizing gourmet meals while on the other side fashion outlets have sell multi collection of wearable brands at an affordable cost.
