New Restaurant 7 Mile Kitchen To Open At Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa

May 13, 2018

Named after the San Diego North County city's seven-mile stretch of coastline, 7 Mile Kitchen will grand open on June 14 within Carlsbad's revamped Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa, offering a menu of wood-fired pizzas, craft beer, gourmet burgers and homemade gelato.

The Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa will unveil extensive property-wide renovations and upgrades for this Summer, including a brand new lobby area, zero-entry pool, 169 completely revamped guest rooms, including 48 suites, and the addition of a new restaurant 7 Mile Kitchen, debuting in early June 2018. The resort will also share amenities with the brand new Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa, opening on the same campus in July.

"We’re proud to unveil a completely refreshed resort this summer to both guests and locals alike," said Chris Draper, managing director of the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa. "With a plethora of family-friendly activities at our doorstep and the added benefit of earning Starwood Reward points with each stay, we know the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa will continue to thrive as a premier property in coastal North County San Diego."

Chef Gil Manipon will helm the kitchen at 7 Mile Kitchen, a brand new restaurant named after the city’s seven-mile stretch of Pacific coastline. Chef Gil brings an extensive background in hotel and resort culinary programs, most recently leading his team at Viejas Casino & Resort to achieve the acclaimed AAA Four Diamond Award. The restaurant will offer local craft beers, gourmet burgers and hand-crafted signature pizzas. In addition, the poolside restaurant will feature a gelato bar with a variety of seasonal and signature locally-sourced flavors, and fire pits for nightly s’mores making. The casual chic concept will incorporate earthy wood elements, colorful floral and pattered tiles, and beautiful hanging wood pendant lighting throughout the space.

Other on-property updates include a new zero-entry pool and waterslide, kids’ activity center with family-friendly games and offerings - including a seasonal "Dive-In" movie series - and modernized courtyard areas. Guests will also have access to amenities at the resort’s sister property, The Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa, slated to open July 2018.
