Deluca Pasta set to open in El Segundo with a bang after revamp. The much-awaited opens happens officially on Friday June 22. The doors open at 4 p.m until 7. Saturday will run 4 until 10 p.m. It appears that a name change is in order. It has gone from Trattoria to Pasta. Also added is a new management team and new Executive Chef who is relocating from Scottsdale, Arizona. And that is just a start.
“This is a whole new thing,” said Kat Glaudini, assistant General Manager. “We are going to be making 75 to 100 pounds of fresh pasta daily here.”
This is great news for the El Segundo community. With a number of changes happening lately, this looks to be a very refreshing venture. The company seems to be committed on keeping it local.
KEEPING IT LOCAL
“We want to get into the local community as much as possible,” said Glaudini. “We will have coffee from the Blue Butterfly Coffee Company and we will have El Segundo Brewery on tap as well.”
And it isn’t just the liquids that will be sourced here according to Glaudini. “We want to utilize the local farmer’s market as well.”
This will be welcome to news to many. El Segundo has really seen the bar being lifted on the Italian front when it comes to restaurants. Last week Workshop Enoteca opened quietly serving lunch for the time being. It will eventually move into dinner and brunch down the road. As well the El Segundo Brewery is working on a beer and pizza restaurant called Slice and Pint. It is slotted to open its doors later this summer.
The opening comes at a great time for the City of El Segundo. With many restaurants coming and going lately, Deluca’s opening is welcome news. The restaurant had a very favorable following. Many residents had been hoping it would be soon. With the new focus on sourcing from El Segundo, it shows how vested in the city this company is.
Friday’s opening won’t be the first run under the new company order however. There are some private dinners leading up to it, starting on Monday.
“I don’t mean to cut this short,” said Operations Manager, Jen Goaring Diver, as she took a second out to introduce herself. “But we have a dinner tonight and are trying to get ready.” She was seemingly doing a number of things that come with delivering a new opening.
