Mara Cucina Italiana, which opened at the Mall at Wellington Green in May 2013, is the latest addition to Lirim Jacobi's restaurant group. Chef Joshua Flores curates the eatery’s menu of gourmet Italian classics, tossing pastas with housemade sauces and layering pizzas with specialty toppings. There are lighter options, too, like grilled salmon served over mixed greens with fresh lemon. Diners can sip cappuccinos or drinks from a full bar while talking or gazing at flat-screen televisions.
