Tired of the fried and greasy fair food? Eddie’s Cucina, powered by Spaghetti Eddie’s Cucina Italiana and its sister restaurant, located inside the Marketplace at the Los Angeles County Fair has some alternative options, which pair well with wine and craft beer.
This year’s L.A. County Fair starts Friday, September 1 and runs through Sunday, September 24 at the Fairplex in Pomona, CA. Eddie’s Cucina, always open during fair hours, will amaze the taste buds of fair-goers by offering off the chart menu items such as gourmet pizzas, appetizers including Stuffed Mushrooms and Garlic Puffs, Wine Country Pasta such as Penne and Spinach Pesto, grilled Paninis, and homemade desserts.
The specialty menu is a fusion of two local “Eddie’s” restaurants — Spaghetti Eddie’s Cucina Italiana located on Grand Avenue in Glendora, and Eddie’s Italian Eatery located on Foothill and Towne in Claremont. Both establishments are owned by The Absolutely Italian Management Group, which also owns a third restaurant, Tutti Mangia Italian Grill & Chophouse in Claremont. The Italian chophouse offers steaks, pasta, seafood and an extensive wine list with worldwide varietals.
With this much culinary experience, the team behind Eddie’s Cucina is offering a memorable “food fair” experience for its guests. And this year, some new items will be available, including Pesto Parmesan Puffs and the Pork Belly Cubano Panini. Every year, fair-goers know Eddie’s Cucina is the place to score a Salted Caramel Budino, a very popular dessert at the fair and at all three restaurants.
Spaghetti Eddie’s Cucina Italiana celebrates 32 years in business this year. The establishment has built quite a reputation in the city of Glendora and neighboring communities through involvement with the Glendora Education Foundation and local law enforcement and the annual Tip-A-Cop fundraiser, among many others.
Eddie’s Italian Eatery offers American-inspired Italian cuisine, including salads, pastas, gourmet pizzas and more. Eddie’s menu places a focus on satisfying each customer, no matter the type of food.
So before you run to the funnel cake, kettle corn or cotton candy line at this year’s fair, take a stroll over to the Marketplace and let the experts of Eddie’s open your eyes to the new meaning of “fair food.”
The Marketplace is also commonly referred to as the “Wine, Spirits & Beer” Marketplace and is located adjacent to the Carnival and Home & Garden areas.
