A Plate With A Sandwich And A Cup Of Coffee


There’s something for every palate with Terranea Resort’s gourmet to-go offerings.

In the words of Virginia Wolf, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” For over eleven years, Terranea Resort’s primary and driving initiative has been to provide an immersive, extraordinary experience for all our guests. One of the shining examples is our award-winning culinary offerings. To put it simply, and perhaps not so modestly, we put the epic in epicurean.

This past year, Terranea looked for new ways to provide the same stellar dining experiences, as well as adapt to new changes that maintained the safety and comfort of all our guests and associates. One of the latest additions is the debut of carryout offerings from several of our restaurants. In addition to scenic, outdoor dining, this added experience allows for guests, visitors, and foodies alike to savor Terranea menu favorites at their leisure. Perhaps you’re not ready to dine outdoors, or maybe you’d like to quickly grab a bite – whatever the case, Terranea’s carryout program follows strict safety and health guidelines, providing you a delicious meal with a side of peace of mind.

“The To-Go offerings have given us an extension of service to our resort and local guests,” says Vincent Brunetti, Director of Food and Beverage. “It’s fast, efficient and safe to enjoy the culinary delights of Terranea.” An added bonus to this program is the ability to enjoy your meal wherever you are comfortable. Our spacious 102-acres allows for plenty of room to roam – and eat – in the beautiful environment of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Brunetti explains, “We offer many great areas to enjoy your takeout meals, including our Sunset Bluff and the expansive Ocean Lawn.” If you would prefer to enjoy your meal at home, with some Netflix, and your best pair of sweatpants – this offering is perfect to dine in your own, natural habitat.

Terranea Resort’s menus have also continuously offered both time-honored favorites, creative new combinations, and fresh, local ingredients. “Our culinary offerings, beautiful setting, and excellent service make dining with Terranea very special,” says Brunetti. “The Farm-to-Terranea offerings and creative ingredients not only are inspired, but really cultivate a truly unique experience.”

So, who’s hungry?
