The boutique pâtisserie, Le Mervetty Beverly Hills, is named after a French-born and Belgian perfected dessert—should I repeat that? I think I will! French born, Belgian perfected dessert. It’s called the ‘Merveilleux’ and it is made by way of delicately stacking crumbly meringue together with decadent whipped cream.
A dessert, with a heritage drawing back to two nations with a collective conscience focused on pastry perfection, has to be divine. Its namesake in Beverly Hills is perfection as well.
Le Mervetty in Beverly Hills offers a selection airy temptations in flavors ranging from praline to speculoos to chocolate. They come in regular and the adorable, mignon petit size.
The praline tastes as good as it sounds: Meringue layers, hazelnut praline whipped cream covered with caramelized praline feuilletines.
The desserts are as eye-catchingly elegant as they are delicious. They look especially lovely displayed on a tiered stand amongst colorful spring flowers like anemone and ranunculus.
Sharing is hard, thankfully! It is particularly difficult to maintain elegance when cutting into them. Here’s a peek inside with the neatest cross-section we could obtain.
Le Mervetty also tempts visitors with Le Pavlova—meringue layers, fresh strawberries, vanilla whipped cream covered with crystallized meringues and Le Grand Mervetty for bigger parties and fêtes.
