I see from the Carmel Valley News that Chevy's Fresh Mex is leaving the Flower Hill Mall on Via de la Valle (see the CVN Story, Chevys to close after 20 years), to be replaced by a Cucina Enoteca (a sister to Cucina Urbana, see www.cucinaenoteca.com). From the Cucina Enoteca site: The restaurant’s interior evokes a modern kitchen combined with the history and comfort of an old rustic country farmhouse. A touch of home, splash of bohemia and many objects new and old attract the eye. A focus on natural and reclaimed material is found throughout... Whimsical expressions of Italian classics coupled with the use of the freshest local produce, organic and sustainable products comprise a diverse menu of items mostly at or below $20. This sounds like a great replacement for the old Papachino's restaurant. It will be interesting to see what else is updated as the new Whole Foods opens early next year.
