San Diego Restaurants to Eat at this Week

By Lisa Kelley

Mess Hall
Located within the bustling new Liberty Public Market, Chef Tim Kolanko and Chef de Cuisine Collin Murray of Blue Bridge Hospitality, present a dining concept with an ever-changing menu due to sourcing local produce, meats, fish and other ingredients from the artisans within the market. Each dish will also have a pairing suggestion of beer, wine or cocktails. 2820 Historic Decatur Rd., Liberty Station, 619.255.8360.

Flour & Barley
The new eatery in downtown’s Headquarters at Seaport Village may hail from Las Vegas, but its second concept has a distinctly San Diego feel with decor that pays tribute to the city’s rich naval history. Enjoy a brick oven pizza-centric menu that also features an assortment of appetizers, fresh salads with locally-sourced ingredients, entrees, sandwiches and desserts. The eye-catching bar also boasts house-made cellos, signature cocktails, and an extensive list of 150+ beers on tap and in bottles. 789 W. Harbor Dr., downtown, 619.344.2900.

The newest addition to The Patio Group portfolio, Fireside Restaurant showcases a wood fire and charcoal-driven menu, and a beautiful location in the heart of booming Liberty Station. Enjoy indoor-outdoor dining options surrounded by rustic yet elegant decor and plenty of live plants. We recommend trying the flatbreads and saving room for the ice cream sandwich for dessert. 2855 Perry Rd., Bldg. 8, Liberty Station, 619.432.2100.


Rubicon Deli
North County fans of the popular Rubicon Deli are rejoicing with the brand new third opening in San Diego, this time in UTC.

This new Gaslamp hotspot offers a throwback feel that sports fans will appreciate. The upstairs lounge is decked out in sleek 1920’s decor, while the downstairs sports bar features exposed brick walls, oversized leather booths, two full bars and 25 HD TV’s streaming all the favorite games. The menu boasts all-American eats, such as the 1919 Dog, fired chicken skins, Rich Man’s Grilled Cheese and creative cocktails. Enjoy weekend brunch, happy hour, dinner and a late night menu. (1919 is open until 1:19 a.m.). 560 5th Ave., Gaslamp Quarter, 619.501.1919.
