Crudo restaurant to open in Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch

Chef Pascal Lorange will open Crudo at The Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch in March 2016.

“I have been imagining this concept for years and I needed the right location to bring Crudo to life. When I came across The Village, I knew it was the perfect place for my next venture,” said Lorange. “I am excited to introduce new creative, fresh and affordable dishes to the neighborhood.”

Why a NY chef chooses San Diego

After a decade of overseeing the menu of other restaurants, Pascal Lorange decided it was time to venture out on his own.

The plans for his new creation, Crudo, call for a Mediterranean-inspired menu that plays off the name (“raw” in English) and an airy design that will include a large outdoor patio and lounge embellished with olive, lemon and kumquat trees. 

From his home in New York, Lorange recently took time to talk about his new San Diego concept and where he believes the business of dining out is headed.
