Portillo Secrets – Latin Dining

On-Mountain Manager Michael Rogan shares Portillo secrets – Latin Dining. Portillo is unique in that they feed you, not 2 times a day, not 3 times, but 4 times a day. There is a grand dining room that looks out over Laguna del Inca where guests have breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or “once”, and dinner. Guests can also dine on the mountain at Tio Bob’s Restaurant or at the Ski Box. Dining in the bar is also a fun option where guests can order fun things like sushi, fondue, brochettes, etc

Latinos eat later than most American’s, but they also get up later, so it all works out. The first “turn” in the dining room starts at 8:30 pm and the second “turn” starts at 9:30 pm. Go find Juan Beiza, the maitre d’ of Portillo who has been seating guests in the dining room for over 40 years when you arrive. Speak to him about your dining preferences, let him know if you are dining with kids, etc and it will all be taken care of.

“Provecho” is how they say “Bon Appetite” in Chile. Enjoy!
