New businesses to open at Flower Hill Promenade


By Claire Harlin

A sister to the popular downtown restaurant Cucina Urbana will take the place of the former Paradise Grill at the Flower Hill Promenade, owners recently announced.

Cucina Enoteca will open in May 2013, following the opening of Whole Foods in February. These additions come after the recent openings of Core Power yoga studio and Chipotle, a well-known quick Mexican food option.

In January, Burger Lounge will add to food selections at Flower Hill, and Sharp Rees-Stealy, a health care provider that will house about 20 primary care and specialty doctors, will open next fall.

After a $30 million expansion, the first completed renovation phase of Flower Hill Promenade will be ready for shopping in early November 2012.

The new center offers an additional 70,000 square feet of retail space and includes a four-level parking structure that provides 430 additional parking spaces.

“We’re ecstatic about the expansion of Flower Hill and the additional retailers and restaurants that will be joining the community. We’re so pleased that Sharp Rees-Stealy is one of them and that they’ve chosen us to expand in North County.” says Jeffrey Essakow the managing partner of Flower Hill Promenade. “The level of shopping and dining options plus expansion and renovation to the property are going to exceed expectations and bring a buzz to the community.”

Flower Hill Promenade is located at 2720 Via De La Valle, Del Mar, 92014. Visit:
