    There's a new meaning to farm-to-table. 

Nathan Peitso carries the title of executive farmer at Farmhouse, the new 7,000-square-foot restaurant at LA’s Beverly Center. Kenter Canyon Farms, founded by Peitso’s mother, is the family farm, whose beautiful organic herbs, lettuce, citrus and avocados are grown on 160 acres in Ventura County, and widely sought out by Angelenos at local farmers markets. The menu offers “seed-to-plate” cuisine, showcasing ingredients at their peak, which means responsibly farmed meat and poultry and sustainable seafood, along with farm-traceable fruits and vegetables. The dining room is rustic chic, sprawling and gorgeous. Group dining options abound. The entire space can be bought out for 700 guests standing, 240 seated. More intimate areas include the 1,200-square-foot “living room” with its floor-to-ceiling fireplace (capacity 259 standing, 80 seated); the 900-square-foot café (capacity 180 standing, 64 seated); the lounge (capacity 189 standing; 32 seated); and the veranda (capacity 159 standing, 50 seated).

The time is right; the stage is set. Groups are ready to meet face to face again, and the four-star luxury hotel MGM Grand Detroit is ready to welcome you back.

According to MPI’s report “Spring 2021 Meetings Outlook,” three-quarters of meeting professionals predict a face-to-face event this calendar year. And that definitely rings true for Lisa Williams, executive director of sales for the hotel.
