Liberty Public Market

Dozens of mostly local vendors—everything from lobster sandwiches to house-made pasta and a floral shop—come together at this indoor-outdoor food hall with a spacious patio.

Buona Forchetta

The Neapolitan pros are expanding, this time joining forces with BiCE chef Mario Cassineri to turn out pizzas alongside pasta. One oven will be dedicated to gluten-free pizzas.
2865 Sims Road

 

Fireside by The Patio

From the team behind The Patio on Goldfinch comes an ode to fire-themed food. All dishes are grilled or smoked over a flame, and with most of the seating outdoors, it feels like an upscale barbecue.
2855 Perry Road

 

Breakfast Republic

Indulgence is the theme at this a.m.-focused spot. Dishes include s’mores French toast, chicken wing bowls, and mint chocolate chip pancakes.
2865 Sims Road

 

Soda & Swine

The meatball eatery has more room to spread its wings in this second location. The spacious venue includes a slick cocktail bar, seating by a fireplace, and a foosball table to dine on if you’re feeling playful—or competitive.

The Lot

Order gourmet eats from the comfort of your leather reclining chair at this luxe movie theater, which screens a mix of mainstream and indie flicks.
2620 Truxtun Road

 

Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens

The 50,000-square-foot sprawl, once home to the Navy mess hall, includes 100 craft and specialty beers and food sourced from local organic farms, plus a bocce court.
2816 Historic Decatur Road

 

Spark Cycle

The boutique spin studio based in La Jolla will open a second location early next year. Ride on!
2835 Perry Road
