New Heights

Normal Heights getting a slew of new restos



It went from Hillcrest to North Park and now… the creative restaurant/bar contingent has set its target on Normal Heights.

We’ve already reported on the cocktails-on-tap, soda-jerk concept Polite Provisions from the Consortium Holdings guys (Neighborhood, Craft & Commerce, Underbelly). Going into the former Kadan space (4696 30th St.), it’s a collaboration with nationally respected mixologist Erick Castro (Bourbon & Branch, Rickhouse). Next door will come Soda & Swine, an Americana riff from Consortium’s Michelin-starred exec chef Jason McLeod, with butcher shopper, meatballs, pies, etc.

Further east comes Heights Tavern (3377 Adams Ave.), a reclaimed wood and roll-up garage doors kinda place from the former owner of Jose’s in La Jolla. Blue Motif Architecture (Cowboy Star, Solace & The Moonlight Lounge) consulted on design and Matt Gordon (Urban Solace) on the menu. And now, finally, details have emerged on Sycamore. Going into the Lou Jones Inn (3391 Adams Ave., next door to Heights Tavern), this classic cocktail lounge will be an homage to the ’70s dad, with bad Olan Mills family snapshots, banjos, rifles, macramé, live music. The owner is Nicholas Zanoni (Thrusters) and the talented Bells & Whistles (Starlite, Smoking Goat) will be designing. It’s expected to open Feb. 2013.
