Indigo Grill 2.0

Little Italy legacy reboots to keep up with the neighborhood


New guts. New windows. New chef. This summer, Indigo Grill has a whole new life. Under chef Deborah Scott, it was the biggest restaurant opening in Little Italy—in 1994. Twenty years later, the ’hood has risen from a sea of red-sauceries into the most robust restaurant scene in San Diego, with Ironside, Prepkitchen, Craft & Commerce, Bencotto, and Juniper & Ivy. Scott and her partners in Cohn Restaurant Group—along with French designer Philippe Beltran (BO-Beau, 100 Wines)—gutted it and started anew. They plan to have a late-night scene with DJs and bands. The big news is the return of chef Jason Maitland (ex-Arterra, Flavor, Red Light District) who takes the lead on a modern, Latin menu. But for regulars, there will be a “Deborah’s Classicos” section: five of her classic dishes, starting with her famed pipian-crusted Brie—which, starting August 4, will also be sold in SoCal Costcos.
