San Diego Business Journal

Locally based Mexican restaurant El Vitral has opened its second San Diego County location at Otay Ranch Town Center in Chula Vista.

Mall operator General Growth Properties Inc. said the 6,300-square-foot restaurant has a “social dining” design, with closer seating and an open feel to encourage interaction among diners. The new eatery, located in the regional mall’s “Restaurant Row” area, will also be offering monthly tasting and education events.

El Vitral opened its original location in San Diego’s East Village in 2009. It is among several recent additions to the Chula Vista mall, including Parmida Home Store, Crazy 8, Francesca’s Collections, Tacos & Tarros, Kidville, Brow Art, and Swarovski.

The mall, with approximately 100 specialty stores, is located off state Route 125, at Eastlake Parkway and Olympic Parkway.
