Riviera Supper Club sells; Half-Door Brewing takes over house in East Village


Published:

Reagle Beagle, the Three’s Company-named craft beer-and-sausage joint in Mission Hills, is opening up a second location in Leucadia… Alchemy in South Park just kind of does things right. They plan to install a rooftop garden with the help of Seeds @ City. Next they’ll work on a spot in the San Diego Public Market where they’ll sell foodstuffs and produce… It’s our understanding that Belo has been bought by Richard Kelley, the former owner of The Ivy Hotel (now Andaz). We’ll confirm and get details soon… Riviera Supper Club—the cook-it-yerself steak joint opened by ex-Turf Club owners Tim Mays and Sam Chammas, with Joe Austin—is changing hands. It will become Proprietor’s Reserve at the Riviera Supper Club—a second location for the Normal Heights wine bar. Owner Michael Rammelsberg will keep the grill-your-own-steak concept, but will add some prepared dishes, craft beer and wine. He also plans to add two patios to the space with service and wine pairing dinners…. Swoon Dessert Bar will take over the space at 3139 University Ave. (formerly Caffe Carpe Diem)… The owners of The Field are opening up Half Door Brewing in a unique space—the white house on the corner of 9th and Island… The guys behind Vin de Syrah, Analog and Firehouse are at it again. They’ve signed a lease on a 10,000-square-foot, two-story space on the corner of Kettner and Grape Streets. Called KettnerHouse, it’ll have the area’s only second-story open-air patio with a view of the SD Harbor. A source close to the project calls it, “like Prepkitchen or Craft & Commerce, but a bigger bar scene.”
