Priority Seating

The red Calypso cottage has been revamped into the handsome green Priority Public House, a 66-seat gastropub by proprietor Brian McBride. A colorful chalkboard menu reveals what’s spilling from its taps—22 craft beers and two white wines from the barrel. Order up a fetching Salt of the Earth with smoky mescal, cynar, lime, and pineapple, and a burly center-cut pork chop with chipotle citrus barbecue sauce. 576 North Coast Highway 101

The Seagull Flies North

The Regal Seagull, the coastal version of Mission Hills’ Regal Beagle, is Leucadia’s latest dudefest. After you choose your local fave from 20 rotating beer taps and one of nine artisan links served up on Sadie Rose buttermilk rolls, your order is zip lined into the kitchen. Patrons are given a 1980s character name (think Mr. T, Greg Brady, Marty McFly) for pickup, which is announced over the loudspeaker. Twenty-five cent mini-corn dog Mondays, Wingsday Wednesdays, and Trivia Night add to the party. 996 North Coast Highway 101

Scotch and a Smoke

Cigar aficionados can light up at the Park Hyatt Aviara Masters of Food and Wine event for an evening of steak, smoke, and scotch. After a little Glenfiddich or Macallan with hors d’oeuvres, chef Kurtis Habecker presents four courses, with Brandt all-natural rib eye served two ways as the focal point. Guests then retire to the terrace for a scotch and cigar pairing hosted by spirit manager Levi Walker of San Diego’s Young’s Market Company and cigar expert David Haddad of Fumar Cigars. September 20–22. Argyle Steakhouse, 7447 Batiquitos Drive

The Prager Brothers

Old Town’s El Agave is transporting its old-world traditions and to a new zip code this fall with an outpost in Del Mar. Tequila Agave Artesenal will fill the space once occupied by Flavor in Del Mar Plaza. The upscale (read: expensive) Mexican eatery will also host a 2,000-bottle tequila museum with a tasting room for tequila flights and appraising in-house. 1555 Camino Del Mar

On Brothers and Bread

The Prager Bros., baker Louie and musician Clinton, who used to fire up their bread in the back of Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria, have opened their own retail space—Pragers Brothers Artisan Bread in C-bad. The duo is also planning a CSA-style bread program. Find them at weekly Encinitas, Vista, Carlsbad, and Rancho Santa Fe famers markets. Carlsbad Gateway Center, 5671 Palmer Way
