Several new restaurants are coming to the Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch to replace the space left vacant by Crudo.
Crudo shuttered in late 2017 after a little over a year and the Rise & Shine Restaurant Group which runs the Village’s Breakfast Republic across the way has announced plans to fill the space with not one but two new restaurant concepts: Casa Rustica and California Taco Club.
According to Rise & Shine, Casa Rustica will bring “Fun Mex” to families of all sizes, serving up specialties “derived from our south-of-the border-neighbors in a casual, festive environment.”
Next door, California Taco Club will serve a rotating menu of taco favorites, offering fresh ingredients, and a “taco-of-the-day” option based on the freshest fish or seafood item they get in that morning.
Both restaurants are slated to open in May 2018.
