Terranea Resort Reopens Catalina Kitchen

RANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif.—Terranea Resort, A Destination Hotel, announces the reopening of Catalina Kitchen. The new restaurant features redesigned interior and exteriors and food and beverage menus, and offers guests an overall enhanced dining experience centered on quality ingredients, thoughtfully crafted dishes, and sincere hospitality.

Chef de Cuisine David Tarrin’s menu is both broadly appealing and adventurous, with rustic plates that showcase local ingredients and an attention to sustainability. Featuring a selection of fresh seafood, charcuterie, steaks and chops, fresh garden salads and vegetables, flatbreads and pastas, his menu draws inspiration from the abundance of produce in California. Flavors of the Golden State take Catalina Kitchen guests through an enticing culinary tour of California, with emphasis on the use of herbs from Terranea’s own seaside garden, local produce, and bold flavors.

Catalina Kitchen also offers a full bar stocked with a curated selection of local California spirits, where hand-crafted cocktails made from fresh ingredients will be served. The signature cocktail is the “22 Mile,” named for the 22 miles to Catalina Island from the Palos Verdes Peninsula where Terranea Resort is located. Additional featured beverage offerings include Wellness Lattes, Breakfast Cocktails, and Seasonal Mocktails. Continuing with the California-focused theme, Catalina Kitchen features local craft beers and California wines. The restaurant hosts a nightly “Fire & Ice” happy hour, featuring select cocktails and menu items from the restaurant’s pizza oven and seafood raw bar.


“The new Catalina Kitchen menu further supports Terranea’s efforts to bring a taste of California, and specifically the Palos Verdes Peninsula, to our guests,” said David Tarrin, Chef de Cuisine. “Whether starting the day right with a healthy breakfast incorporating fresh Terranea produce, or concluding a busy day at happy hour, sipping a hand-crafted cocktail and enjoying a selection from the raw bar, our passionate and skilled team will do everything possible to make a guest’s experience extraordinary.”

Complemented by views of Catalina Island, the restaurant’s large windows and patio doors welcome the natural beauty of the Palos Verdes Peninsula into the modern dining space. Guests will enjoy the sound of a flowing waterfall while dining fireside on the open air patio. Inside, guests can view the large, open kitchen from every table and watch as chefs create their signature dishes at a variety of action stations located around the perimeter of the dining room. A private dining room is also available to reserve for special occasions, with customizable menus to suit every event. Inspired by the beauty of the coast, the history of the area, and the warm energy of a kitchen—Catalina Kitchen brings the best elements of Terranea together in a thoughtful and inviting setting.
