Second generation farmer of Kenter Canyon Farms, Nathan Peitso debuted the Grand Opening of his restaurant, FARMHOUSE, on March 16. The dining destination, located on the ground floor of the newly redesigned Beverly Center, brought together celebrities and VIP guests for their private reception benefiting the American Red Cross. Guests were treated to a sneak peek of the highly anticipated restaurant, with a first look at menu items and cocktails.
Redefining the traditional restaurant, FARMHOUSE places farmers at the forefront of the business, thus creating a new culinary movement focused on collaboration with the region’s top farmers to grow and harvest ingredients dictating the dining destination’s dishes. Led by Peitso in the unique role of Executive Farmer, FARMHOUSE provides seasonal farm-traceable “seed-to-plate” cuisine, presented in an atmosphere that evokes the restaurant’s name. Peitso plans each season’s rotating the menu months in advance through the selection of seeds and varieties of produce utilizing his relationships with an assortment of local farms and network of purveyors beyond Kenter Canyon Farms—including the planting and harvesting.
