RESTAURANT 917

Located on the second level of the Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles, with stunning views of the driver development track, Restaurant 917’s sleek and modern setting echoes Porsche’s world-class design aesthetic.

The name and decor were inspired by the legendary 917 race car, which gave Porsche its first overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970 and 1971. Restaurant 917’s refined yet approachable seasonal menu is composed of ingredient-driven dishes that merge diverse flavors, inventive techniques and playful compositions.

A unique fine-dining experience worthy of a special trip or serving as the perfect finish to an adrenalin-packed day, it is also an unforgettable venue for special celebrations and meetings.

MATT LEE, EXECUTIVE CHEF

Porsche_Matt Lee_0042.jpg

Formerly the Executive Chef for the Restaurant at the Getty, Matt Lee has a quiet passion for culinary integrity and innovation. His exquisite eye for detail is evident in everything from his careful flavor composition to the stunning and playful visual presentation of each element on the plate. At 917, his facility with fresh, locally caught fish and other seafood complements his mastery of more traditional steak, chicken, and pork offerings, which he tends to balance with a bright vegetable accompaniment.

Matt began his career at the age of 16 prepping seafood and vegetables at a local dining destination. After high school he attended the California School of Culinary Arts in Pasadena and went straight into fine dining, as Sous Chef at the historic and award-winning Saddle Peak Lodge in Calabasas, CA, where he first fell in love with cooking seasonally and locally. He was also inspired by his grandfather, who opened a restaurant in New York with friends soon after emigrating from China, and who later always tended a bountiful backyard garden in Los Angeles — as Matt also does.
