Mark Norris's New Venture, Crispin's, Aims to Attract Families
As we mentioned yesterday, Norris, currently at San Clemente's White Horses, plans to open Crispin's, An American Eatery and Bar, in July/August, when the sale of the White Horses is completed. The new place will be located at the site of the old Baker's Square on Camino de los Mares (in the Stater Brothers Center), also in San Clemente.
There'll be a games area with linked gaming for kids aged six and up, plus an area for playing Rock Band, etc--(performances will be shown around the restaurant on TVs!) Outside, there will be a grassy area with swings and slides, which will also be monitored by CCTV.
As for the grub (breakfast, lunch and dinner), expect "simple, family-oriented fare with an emphasis on good-value comfort or traditional family food... to the same standard you have come to expect of us".
We'll bring you more news as soon as we have it, so watch this space.
