Another branch of North Italia is scheduled to land on Wednesday, June 5 at One Paseo in Carmel Valley. The modern Italian restaurant arrived last fall in Fashion Valley, and is a popular brand for Fox Restaurant Concepts, the hospitality group that also runs Blanco Tacos + Tequila in Fashion Valley, Flower Child in Del Mar, and is bringing The Henry to Coronado this summer.
At 5,110 square-feet, North Italia is one of the bigger eateries to open at One Paseo, with dining area that seats 150 guests and a large patio and outdoor bar. The bar program includes a Sicilian Margarita with gran Centenario añejo, solerno blood orange, lime and red sangria with brandy, blood orange, red wine, strawberries, and lime juice as well as wine and local beer.
Its executive chef is Seth Vider, who joins North Italia from Red O in the UTC area. His kitchen will make pasta daily, as well as pizzas and the eatery’s seasonal menu for spring which features a salad with kale, roasted cauliflower, clementine, date, avocado, faro, golden raisins, quinoa, goat cheese, almonds, and sherry vinaigrette, burrata tortelloni with cherry tomato, basil, pecorino, and tomato sauce, and roasted salmon with pesto faro, caramelized cauliflower, broccolini, lemon gremolata, and saba.
Today through Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the company is hosting a job fair on-site to fill all front and back-of-house positions; interested parties can also apply online.
