If you live within a half mile of Beverly Blvd. and Crescent Heights, you don’t just know what Marvito is, chances are, you’ve already been there twice this week and are coming with a date on Saturday. This is your Cheers. Marvito is the laid back, slightly cheaper, and most likely Gen Z sibling of Marvin, an upscale(ish), French(ish) restaurant packed with a great wine selection and lots of excellent finger foods. One of our favorite things on the menu here is a recent addition - a cheeseburger consisting of two smashed patties topped with red onion, avocado, mayo, lettuce, and Jack cheese. It’s a clean-tasting, crisp masterpiece, worthy of a solo meal, or catching up on a years-worth of gossip with a coworker.
