The new Portola Dining Commons, adjacent to Santa Catalina Residence Hall and San Joaquin Village, opened in the fall of 2017 and is the largest of UCSB’s four dining commons.  Portola serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, Monday through Friday, and brunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday in a contemporary dining room setting, including patio meals with mountain and pool views.  At Portola, menus have been thoughtfully designed to appeal to a wide audience with a discerning palette. Classic comfort dishes from The Grill, such as sliders, fries, and pizza, are paired with a more worldly selection from the International platform station that includes spicy pork bowls, banh mi sandwiches, and egg tartines with aioli, kale and pesto.
