From the Daily Journal archives Par 3 is a Hole in OneBy Darya Mead, Advertising Features Writer

There are very few restaurants with views on the Peninsula. Under new management and with striking renovations, Par 3 at the City of San Mateo's Poplar Creek Golf Course, delivers both a stunning view and elevated fare. The sister restaurant to the popular local watering hole THREE Craft Kitchen and Bar on Third Avenue in San Mateo, Par 3 soars.
Located at the foot of the 18th hole with panoramic views of the 120 acre property -- the restaurant integrates perfectly -- has ample free parking and generous vistas. Approachable and welcoming, owner and chef Alicia Petrakis and co-owner Eleni Lolas have created an oasis with a dynamic menu.
