Maggiano's Little Italy at South Coast Plaza Adds Banquet Facilities As Final Phase of Renovation

--Restaurant's New Private Dining Areas Now Open, Ideal for Business or Social Events
COSTA MESA, Calif., Feb 16, 2009 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Maggiano's Little Italy(R) at South Coast Plaza debuted two private banquet rooms last week and will add two additional rooms in April, completing the restaurant's renovation and allowing it to host events for almost 200 guests in its private dining areas as of this Spring.

The restaurant's new Barolo and Cafe Rooms, which can stage events for approximately 40 and 50 people respectively, opened this week, while the Bella and San Remo rooms will be available in April 2009 and will add event space for up to 100 more people. All-day meeting packages are available, complemented by banquet menus that include breakfast and brunch options, as well as traditional lunch and dinner offerings. The restaurant's full-service banquet managers, a resource available at all Maggiano's locations, can help coordinate all the details of an event.

"With these new banquet rooms and some of the most affordable event pricing in the area, our guests in Costa Mesa now have a great option for planning their upcoming events," said Edithann Ramey, director of marketing for Dallas-based Maggiano's Little Italy. "This banquet expansion gives our guests a new way to enjoy Maggiano's, now in an event setting, but still with their favorite dishes, in a comfortable environment and with the great service they've come to expect from us."

Located in the heart of Orange County's business district and near the Orange County Performing Arts Center and John Wayne Airport, Maggiano's is a convenient option for nearby businesses in need of a sophisticated location for meetings. The restaurant's professional staff and its state-of-the-art technology and A/V services will ensure the meeting runs smoothly.

The full banquet space will be open just in time to host rehearsal dinners and receptions during the busy spring and summer wedding season. The rooms are also ideal for graduation dinners or celebrations, as well as office parties and organization meetings.

Located at 3333 Bristol St. near South Coast Plaza, Maggiano's serves lunch and dinner in the dining room and on the patio, and also offers carryout and delivery service. The bar and dining areas are open from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday; and 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Abundant free parking is available during dining hours.
