Talk about a hidden gem — the luxury sports car manufacturer Porsche has recently opened its doors to Restaurant 917, located right above its Experience Center (driving school and showroom) in Carson, California, south of downtown Los Angeles.
The restaurant’s name and interior were inspired by Porsche’s 917, race car which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans races in 1970 and 1971, according to the restaurant website.
As for the food, the restaurant offers a seasonal menu by Chef Matt Lee, including soup and salad appetizers and burgers and flat iron steak for entrées.
The restaurant typically caters to Porsche employees since the entrance is “hidden behind visitor badges, locked doors, and long hallways,” Eater reported. However, itisn’t as exclusive as you might think: reservations are available through OpenTable.
Restaurant 917 is open for lunch Tuesday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and for dinner Tuesday through Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
