Lionfish/ Oxford Social Club/ Provisional Kitchen/ Nason’s Beer Hall/ Fifth & Rose
There are several high-end concepts opening in January at the new Pendry Hotel in Downtown San Diego this year. For Lionfish, expect modern coastal cuisine featuring fresh-catch produce and prime meats prepped by executive chef Jose Ruiz. The two-floor dining room will be open for dinner only. The Oxford Social Club will cater to the nightlife side of things with a curated cocktail program plus intimate banquette seating and plush furniture. Provisional Kitchen aims to work as a casual restaurant selling gourmet food and will be headed by chef Chris Osborne, while Nason’s Beer Hall will focus on the local craft scene. Lastly, Fifth & Rose will open up as a sophisticated watering hole serving upscale bar fare.
