LA’s New Farmer-Led Restaurant Debuts at Beverly Center

There won’t be an executive chef, but there will be an executive farmer

The Beverly Center overhaul is nearing completion, with more and more restaurants coming online at the looming shopping plaza just off La Cienega. Next up is Farmhouse, a unique new project that, instead of focusing on the resume of some long-tenured executive chef, will instead offer a complete experience under the guidance of head farmer Nathan Peitso.

Peitso hails from the beloved Kenter Canyon Farms, a massive growing operation north of Los Angeles. He’s going to be using a lot of the produce from his own land to supply the restaurant, and working with other farmers like Alex Weiser for much of the rest. Creekstone will supply the meat products, though the menu will lean towards vegetables as a primary focus.

A full menu is available online now, but expect lots of rotation to go along with the seasons. Early dishes include southern Sierra carrots with harissa, avocado, and almonds, and eight-hour braised lamb shoulder with carrot-saffron romesco. A shareable roasted Petaluma chicken comes with golden raisin stuffing and red frill mustard greens for $62.

The wood-lined dining room

As for the 7,000 square foot space, expect a kind of upscale farmhouse chic, with tall wooden ceilings, lots of plant life, and a working fireplace. Throwback seats and comfortable booths mark the main dining area, while a more gilded bar setup allows customers a look into the open kitchen towards the back.

Of course, Farmhouse is far from all that is happening at the Beverly Center these days. Cal Mare recently debuted on the ground floor with coastal Italian specialities, while Eggslut is operating inside and San Francisco star chef Josh Skenes looks to bring the more casual Angler to life inside sometime later this year. Farmhouse opens for dinner on Saturday night, keeping evening hours only to start. Expect lunch and brunch down the line.
