Popular New American Concept to Unveil Original Location’s New Patio Space with Upgrades in Coming Weeks
Chef-driven The Blind Pig Kitchen + Bar in Rancho Santa Margarita has undergone extensive patio renovations to enhance its outdoor dining space, which will be ready for diners to enjoy in the coming weeks. The courtyard expansion, which adds approximately 500 square feet to the existing space, will be complete with additional dining and lounging areas, as well as a large central fireplace feature with unparalleled lake views.
The expanded floor plan will also allow for outdoor heaters, bench seating, updated flooring, updated tile, 2 palm trees and other landscaping, as well as brand new furnishings. The 976 square foot area can comfortably accommodate seating up to 40, doubling the former courtyard patio capacity.
Diners looking to dine al fresco can soon spend time on the refurbished patio while delighting in food and drink offerings from the seasonally rotating menus featuring culturally-inspired modern American dishes. Nightly happy hour includes $6 select wines and draft beers, $7 well spirits, and $10 speciality cocktails, as well as discounted appetizers. In addition, weekly happenings include Tiki Taco Tuesday where guests can enjoy $3 tacos from 6-9pm and $10 tiki cocktails all night long; Wine & Whiskey Wednesday which offers half off wine by the glass and whiskey specials including $8 House Old Fashioneds and featured whiskies; and Kill the Keg Thursdays, featuring all night $6 draft beers and half-off select bottled beers. Guests who “kill the keg” win exclusive merch.
“We are excited to unveil our renovated patio space to our loyal guests who have been eagerly anticipating its completion,” said Tony Monaco, owner of The Blind Pig Kitchen + Bar. “It has been wonderful seeing our customers back enjoying our food in-person and, with the expanded outdoor floor plan, our aim is to make diners all the more comfortable joining us.”
