Porta Via

1063 N. Swarthmore Ave. | Pacific Palisades, CA 90272 | PortaViaRestaurants.com

Porta Via’s second, and newest, location is situated in the prestigious Caruso Palisades Village in the Pacific Palisades, California. Porta Via is a transplant from Beverly Hills, where their flagship restaurant is located on Canon Drive.

Southern California Restaurant Design Group was asked to price the project with delivery, installation and full on-site coordination.

We began by reviewing the food service drawings to identify any possible inconstancies or coordination issues with other trades. Our team quickly identified several trouble areas. The back bar needed to service the designer’s eloquent upper structure design, so we strategized to make sure the beer and wine taps did not interfere with any intricacies of the design element.

In the kitchen, we coordinated the specialized hood and air scrubber system to make sure all trades were coordinated to assure the most efficient connections to the control box. Southern California Restaurant Design Group also designed an over shelf area to take advantage of the space above the salad and prep tables for pass-through of plated dishes.  The kitchen was very tight so we took advantage of every area from sizing prep spaces to wall shelving to create the best, most efficient workspace possible.
