A vacant site known as a dining destination in El Dorado Hills is coming back to life. A new restaurant will replace Osteria Moto and the former and popular Bistro 33, both of which closed in 2019 and 2018, respectively.
As the region continues to recover and business surges, city leaders searched high and low for a new worthy tenant to fill the void. El Dorado Hills has landed a familiar team with a successful track record and deep experience in food hospitality.
Mark and Karoline Platt, owners of the upscale Sienna and Land Ocean restaurants in El Dorado Hills, Folsom, Roseville, Reno and soon in Idaho, will convert the 5,400-square-feet at the Town Center into South Fork Grille. It’ll feature weekly lunch and dinner and weekend brunch.
While South Fork Grille will complement Sienna and Land Ocean restaurants, its menu will differ and will focus on salads, steaks, seafood, ahi tuna and possibly smoked meats. It’ll have its own look and feel from the previous tenants and feature an outdoor patio and sizable indoor bar.
Following a difficult past couple years of closures, the hope is folks around El Dorado Hills now have a new signature restaurant to visit. Opening around summer of next year, South Fork Grille and the other restaurants will employ about 400 people, infusing the region with much-needed economic activity.
