Dining Safety

Post Ranch and Sierra Mar have taken unprecedented steps to help protect the health of our guests, working with some of the country’s foremost experts to ensure that our dining experience has been set up as safely as possible. Here’s what we’ve been up to:

  • A new, state-of-the-art, medical-grade ventilation system completely replenishes the dining room with fresh, Big Sur air up to six times per hour

  • Several ultra-efficient Mila HEPA air purifiers have been placed throughout Sierra Mar 

  • Table-top air purifiers from Wynd create a bubble of purified air at each table

  • Installation of a real-time air quality monitoring system from Senseware – verifiying that dining indoors offers a comparable level of risk to dining outdoors, while allowing us to adjust and optimize air quality as needed. To view Sierra Mar’s air quality in real-time, please click here
