From Farm to Fork
Farm fresh, isn't something we take lightly here at the Portola Hotel & Spa. In fact, we take that phrase quite literally! From our restaurant menus at Jacks Monterey, The Club Room and Peter B's Brewpub to our extensive catering department, Executive Chef Danny Abbruzzese works directly with local farms, sourcing the freshest and best produce available in our Tri County region – primarily within less than a 60-mile radius. Whether touring local farms, working directly with growers and even owner/operators, Chef is proud and committed to supporting a wide range of local farms.
