Restaurant débuts, menu changes, and trend tracking



Published:

The Range Kitchen & Cocktails in Hillcrest is bringing back dinner theater, sort of. Check their Facebook page for details on movie nights at the restaurant, and be sure to call ahead for a reservation if you want to get a table with a good view of the screen. Next up is The Birdcage January 10. 

New name, same menu for a beachside brewery, but we’re not sure how much a change from PB Alehouse to Pacific Beach Alehouse is going to motivate serious beer connoisseurs to add it to their regular rotation. And what’s so wrong with PB anyway?  

The swank Asian restaurant Katsuya, from the LA-based Sam Nazarian’s SBE Entertainment group with design by Philippe Starck, will be opening in the Andaz Hotel this year in the former Quarter Kitchen spot. 

Point Loma and OB residents finally have a worthy new watering hole other than Sessions Public. Chad Cline proudly opened Harbor Town last month with simple burgers, sandwiches, salads, and local craft brews on Rosecrans. Feels like it’s been there forever. 

Fans of mega burritos and the late-night fourth meal can rejoice now that Freebirds is finally open in Hillcrest on Fifth Avenue. 

Carmel Valley gets its own Davanti Enoteca this month, as the Chicago-based Italian restaurant family expands in San Diego from its first location in Little Italy. 

Both locations of Harney Sushi are going all-sustainable with their menus, meaning no more toro, bluefin tuna, bigeye tuna, or certain varieties of yellowfin, hamachi, and octopus. 

Chef Kemar Durfield recently débuted his new menu at Donovan’s Prime Seafood in the Gaslamp. Considering it’s his first effort since leaving Addison at the Grand Del Mar, we’re intrigued to check it out.
