Don’t be fooled by the name or its somewhat secretive Instagram presence, this celebrity-backed restaurant in Beverly Hills is mostly tourist cheese. A meal on its giant, pink patio is like eating at a gaudy cantina in Downtown Disney—there are children running everywhere, $20 guacamole that should be $5, tables with a gimmicky "push for tequila" button, and waitstaff that deadpans, “Welcome to beautiful Rodeo Drive!” as you sit down. As for the food, there are some highlights—the savory tableside brisket birria is a solid dish to share if you’re on a date—but nothing is good enough to distract you from the fact that you’re in a shopping plaza surrounded by people who just got back from the Santa Monica Pier. If you have out-of-town friends or family staying in BH with kids, The Hideaway isn’t a bad suggestion, but otherwise, you can skip it.
