10 Hot Plates: San Diego's Top Food News in November

The latest restaurant rumors, openings, and coming-soons


Daiquiri at Hundred Proof


Common Stock is now open in the former Salt & Cleaver space in Hillcrest. Menu highlights include Nashville-style chicken, onion dip with housemade fries, and avocado hummus.



Known for traditional Russian and Georgian cuisine and its cheeky menu, Kafe Sobaka in Golden Hill has closed.



Hidden Fish in Kearny Mesa is serving sushi dishes omakase-style, aka whatever the chefs want to make, using ingredients from local waters and Japan’s renowned Tsukiji fish market.



The restaurant-bar Fernside has opened in South Park, with a team that draws from previous experience at Born & Raised, Cutwater Spirits, and Nine-Ten Restaurant and Bar.



Tacos, quesadillas, and entrées like birria are on the menu at Tuétano Taquería in San Ysidro.



Stephen Kurpinsky (ex–George’s at the Cove) is now beverage director at Hundred Proof. Located a few blocks from Trust, its sister restaurant in Hillcrest, the gastropub has debuted new drinks for happy hour and brunch, like a boozy riff on Crunch Berries.



Tiki-themed downtown cocktail den Cat Eye Club has closed. Its neighbor The Blind Burro will take over to expand its own dining space.



The year-round open-air Lane Field Park Markets is now open by the bay on Sundays, with more than 30 vendors, including Public Square Coffee, Betty’s Pie Whole, and Doggos Gus hot dogs.



Build-your-own pizza venture (and LeBron James–backed) Blaze Pizza has opened an outpost in Chula Vista.



The US Grant is resurrecting its 1930s-era standalone bar Rendezvous, where patrons can enjoy wine, cocktails, punch bowls, and cask ales in a vintage, French-inspired setting.
