Second-generation farmer of Kenter Canyon Farms, Nathan Peitso debuted the Grand Opening of his restaurant, FARMHOUSE, on Thursday, March 15. The upcoming dining destination, located on the ground floor of the newly redesigned Beverly Center, brought together celebrities and VIP guests for their private reception benefiting the American Red Cross. Guests were treated to a sneak peek of the highly anticipated restaurant, with a first look at menu items and cocktails. Lance Bass was among the first to arrive with his husband, Michael Turchin at the Grand Opening. The former NYSNC singer and beau were greeted by their pal, Kelly Hu on the carpet and welcomed the couple with hugs before making their way into the packed party. Next to arrive was actress AnnaLynne McCord. The Let’s Get Physical star fell in love with the tractor upon her arrival and had a full photo shoot with it, even climbing up into the driver’s seat for a few pics. The former 90210 star made her way through the packed party overheard receiving compliments of her luscious golden curls.

FARMHOUSE redefines the traditional restaurant model by placing a farmer at the forefront of the business, thus creating a new culinary movement focused on collaboration with the region’s top farmers to grow and harvest ingredients dictating the dining destination’s dishes. Led by Peitso in the unique role of Executive Farmer, FARMHOUSE provides seasonal farm-traceable “seed-to-plate” cuisine, presented in an atmosphere that evokes the restaurant’s name. Peitso plans each season’s rotating the menu months in advance through the selection of seeds and varieties of produce utilizing his relationships with an assortment of local farms and network of purveyors beyond Kenter Canyon Farms—including the planting and harvesting.
