Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach has created a completely different golf course dining experience by transforming its old clubhouse café into a beautifully renovated restaurant.
Porter’s in the Forest includes a panoramic view of the Del Monte Forest, a re-imagined farm-to-table menu, unique wine and cocktail lists, comfortable leather chairs, outdoor dining and fire pits.
Executive chef Johnny De Vivo takes ordinary golf food and spins it upside down. “We want to make what golfers like to eat, with a twist. Everything will be made with love,” he said.
Porter’s in the Forest is a place where discriminating diners (golfers and non-golfers, locals and tourists) expect something deliciously different. Formerly the executive chef at high-end Casanova in Carmel, De Vivo calls his new cuisine “California Artisanal,” using local and regional products and making everything in-house. De Vivo takes that philosophy to heart, producing fresh bacon by smoking whole pork bellies, churning heavy cream into butter to slather on fresh-baked bread, and making his own kimchi, his own ketchup and his own pickles.
