The second location, The Patio on Goldfinch, will offer the same highly acclaimed dining experience and personal service when it opens in the historic community of Mission Hills in mid-June.
“While I was searching more than a dozen great neighborhoods within our city to develop and open our second Patio restaurant, I soon realized I had everything I ever wanted in a great location right here in my own backyard,” said Gina Champion-Cain, owner and proprietor of The Patio brand of restaurants.
“I have lived in Mission Hills with my husband, Steve, for more than 25 years and realized the most wonderful place for our newest location, quite obviously, is within walking distance from my residence,” she said. “How could I ever find a more charming, historic and beautiful environment than my own residential community of Mission Hills?
“We are certainly pleased to have attracted the experience and successful track record of our new general manager, Chris Simmons, to manage our trusted brand,” said Champion-Cain.
Simmons, who most recently managed the newly remodeled Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa’s The Pony Room, joins The Patio on Goldfinch effective immediately. Simmons brings years of creating successful culinary programs at Burlap, Cucina Urbana, and Hotel L’auberge.
Like the Pacific Beach location, The Patio on Goldfinch’s interiors will highlight the use of repur-posed woods and will have abundant light throughout with windows and skylights, a massive bar area providing over 20 seats, three high definition TVs and a dog-friendly patio area.
The Patio on Goldfinch, which is just less than 4,000 square feet, will feature a large exhibition kitchen, complete with state-of-the-art ovens and ranges, all custom designed for The Patio.
The Patio on Goldfinch will serve grab-and-go breakfast items, lunch, happy-hour bites, dinner nightly and weekend brunch, incorporating some of the popular small and shared plate items already featured at The Patio on Lamont Street.
According to Champion-Cain, The Patio on Goldfinch bar will debut 12 new craft beers, wine on draft, a variety of house-made flavored soft drinks and one of the most innovative cappuccino and espresso machines available anywhere.
It will feature on-staff experts in wine, tequila and beer to assist customers with selections as well as arrange for private tastings or special events.
Valet parking will be provided for a nominal fee.
