Carnitas on hunt; new Searsucker chef; East Village rises



Published:

Carnitas Snack Shack's pork belly appetizer.

Carnitas Snack Shack just posted an opening for a new GM on Craigslist, saying that it plans to open a few more locations. Carnitas nearly closed a deal on their second location—taking over the Arby’s on Mira Mesa Blvd.—but it fell through at the last minute…. JC Colon’s free agency didn’t last long. A few days after parting ways with Leroy’s Kitchen & Lounge in Coronado, the chef has been swooped up by Brian Malarkey to head Searsucker Del Mar... When Stone Company Store announced it was opening in Downtown and not serving food, you knew some savvy entrepreneur would line up to feed the beery masses. That The Flight Path also serves wine is an even better idea. Now open, the clean, modern, industrial spot will have 75 bottles and 25 by the glass, plus basic bites like roasted garlic with tomato-basil bruschetta, a burrata selection and a few sliders…  The newly opened Cucina Enoteca Del Mar was named one of OpenTable’s “100 Hottest Restaurants in America”… East Village is finally about ready to explode. Along with Bottega Americano and The Quartyard on their way, hot local restaurant *** ***** is also looking for its third location in the area. Will unveil the asterisk once a deal is done.
