It’s back to basics at Square One Pizza Café in Irvine, California
Owners Kyle and Liz Gillies always dreamed of owning their own restaurant. The concept for Square One Pizza Café came about after being the founding chef/executive of Bagby Pizza Co. in Baltimore. Kyle applied his back-of-the-house knowledge to the development side of the restaurant business through start-up, launch, and continued success of a thriving enterprise. Liz has front-of-the-house and management experience due to her recent work as General Manager and Wine Buyer for Pascal Restaurant in Newport Beach. Like a perfect marriage and partnership, the Gillies applied their knowledge and opened Square One Pizza Café in Irvine. Their vision - to make delicious food combined with a casual, family-friendly atmosphere, and excellent customer service. Liz is always making sure guests are enjoying their meals and Kyle is manning the reigns of the well-oiled kitchen machine for quick service.
The interior of the restaurant reminds me of an artist’s loft with open ceiling, lots of windows for light, reclaimed wood tables and counters, and inviting tangerine-colored booths.
