2070 Logan Ave

Building • Barrio Logan

"basiIeIE Gallery, Barrio Logan by Product Etc.. A new gallery in the neighborhood with an old presence. Housed inside a gorgeous building that has been restored to reflect the building’s past, this contemporary art gallery shows a lot of promise not just for the Barrio art community, but the region’s art community. Excited to see the roster of shows this gallery lines up."

2070 Logan Ave

Cafe Moto

Cafe • Barrio Logan

"Cafe Moto, Barrio Logan by Product Etc.. A bastion of San Diego coffee roasting, Cafe Moto has been caffeinating San Diego since 1990. Beyond the delicious coffee and gorgeous Italian motor bike inspired branding, they have a cozy, hip interior that displays the small batch roasting operation, with a wholesale store in the back to boot."

Cafe Moto

1861 Main St

Barrio Logan

"Tecture, Barrio Logan by Product Etc.. This crew is technically an industrial design and fabrication studio, but they have shows occasionally that they time with the Barrio Logan art walks. They’re on the same block as a couple artist spaces, such as the Glashaus. Their work is phenomenal by itself, but time your visit with an art walk, and you’ll be in for a fun party with visuals for your brain and eyeballs."

1861 Main St

Bread & Salt

Art gallery • San Diego

"Bread & Salt, Barrio Logan by Product Etc.. Technically sitting in Logan Heights, Bread & Salt is an art enthusiast’s attraction that’s a stones throw away from Barrio Logan. It sits in a beautiful old industrial building, with touches of modern renovations in the parts I’ve seen, including murals decorating parts of the exterior. There is a cluster of people that speak high praise about this gallery / event / studio / artist residency space, but I have yet to witness it in it’s full capacity. Only way to find out what’s going on is on their Facebook page, or through the KPBS and Reader websites."

Bread & Salt

2632 National Ave

Building • Barrio Logan

"Gold Leaf Project / LWP Offices, Barrio Logan by Product Etc.. As with a lot of places included in this list, The Gold Leaf Project / LWP Offices are a relatively new addition to Barrio Logan. The premise behind the Gold Leaf Project is that artists currently showing also install and display artwork on the streets of San Diego / Tijuana framed by these Rococo style gold-leaf frames. The point is to literally take art out of the gallery, but still display it as such in the context of the streets.LWP is a real estate developer who’s a big patron of the arts, and who also initiated the Gold Leaf Project. They’re responsible for a host of terrific apartment buildings, restaurants, and even hotels. The Gold Leaf Project is connected to their offices and they’re an awesome group of people, so don’t be shy and say hello when you walk in!"

2632 National Ave

Las Cuatro Milpas

Mexican restaurant • Barrio Logan

"Cuatros Milpas, Barrio Logan by Product Etc.. A staple in Barrio for authentic homemade Mexican food. Everything about this place bursts with character. From the cafeteria style line wrapping out the door, to the ladies behind the counter energetically preparing food and exchanging with customers, to the oddly perfect decor, to the tortilla factory in the back. I love this place! Oh yea, the food is really good and very affordable too! Get the rice and beans with whatever you order. Thank me later."

Las Cuatro Milpas

BORDER X BREWING

Brewery • Barrio Logan

"Border X Brewing, Barrio Logan by Product Etc.. I think one of the first microbreweries in Barrio Logan. They sport a cool interior with a large outdoor area in the back. Blood Saison was pretty tasty, perfect for a hot spring or summer day. They have some interesting stouts, which I didn't get to try. Chocolate and Horchata stout. Tacos were pretty darn good while drinking a beer, but it's very hard to beat Salud's quality tacos across the street."

BORDER X BREWING

Beat Box Records

Record store • Barrio Logan

"Beat Box, Barrio Logan by Product Etc.. The building that Por Vida is connected to is actually a curated network of small businesses and creative studios called La Vecindad (The Neighborhood). La Vecindad also houses Beat Box Records, and a hidden vintage store with some glorious treasures, San Diego Vintage. Bernie started with selling records online and accumulated a big enough collect to open this shop. Their main thing is selling records at prices that make sense, and that are meant to be played. Don’t miss the $1 section in crates on the floor."

Beat Box Records

702 S 30th St

San Diego

"Chicano Park Skatepark, Barrio Logan by Product Etc.. Pretty big skatepark under iconic Coronado Bridge. Not the most features for a skatepark, but a lot of real estate to play in a supremely unique setting."

702 S 30th St

Por Vida

Coffee shop • Barrio Logan

"Por Vida, Barrio Logan by Product Etc.. Delicious locally sourced coffee with a Mexican flair. The Horchata Latte is a fan favorite, but a personal favorite is the Espresso con Canela y Leche (espresso with sugar & milk). With beans provided by local roasters, James Coffee Co, it’s a game winner. They also have a small retail component that purveys local art, plants, and craft goods."

Por Vida

¡SALUD TACOS!

Mexican restaurant • Barrio Logan

"Salud!, Barrio Logan by Product Etc.. One of a handful of taco spots in San Diego that pulls off legit TJ style tacos, located right next to La Bodega Gallery. The vibe of the interior is solid, with community style picnic tables, and walls covered with ephemera celebrating the Barrio and So-Cal culture. Don’t sleep out on their aqua fresca of the day, and def save room for their churro and ice cream dessert (it’ll serve two people unless you’re going big). Favorite tacos are the Taco De Barrio, Pollo Asado, Veggie, and can’t go wrong with the Carne Asada."

¡SALUD TACOS!

Fairweather Rooftop Bar

Bar • San Diego

"Rare Form, East Village by Fifty & Fifty. Prohibition-esque bar with a twist! Banquet seating great for a large group and an awesome happy hour make this gourmet deli & sandwich spot one of our faves. Draft beer, cocktails, old-school bottled soda pop, small apps, soups...it's a perfect place to grab a bite. And it's really close to Petco Park so you just might see us there before or after a Padre game."

Fairweather Rooftop Bar

Coffee & Tea Collective

Coffee shop • San Diego

"Coffee & Tea Collective, East Village by Fifty & Fifty. You can literally taste the quality at this small-batch roastery and tasting room. They specialize in a "by-the-cup experience" with different brews and loose leaf teas, but have also managed to create an atmosphere that's an experience all in its itself. Industrial, modern, airy, and one-of-a-kind."

Coffee & Tea Collective

"Quartyard, East Village by Fifty & Fifty. If we were forced to go somewhere everyday, this is our unanimous choice. It's a massive outdoor plaza with a resident eatery, coffee bar, rotating lineup of food trucks, craft beer garden, and a dog park. The vibe is urban & friendly & it's where locals go to socialize and enjoy the SD weather. Cop-a-squat on a picnic table and we'll see you there."

1102 Market St

Valentine's Mexican Food

Mexican restaurant • San Diego

"Valentines, East Village by Fifty & Fifty. An amazing hole-in-the-wall with some of the most authentic Mexican food in town. With a family-run staff that has been there for decades, this staple serves the traditional favorites as well as the more trendy goodies like California burritos and pollo asado. Oh, and the diced carrots are a great addition to any plate."

Valentine's Mexican Food

The Mission / East Village

Breakfast restaurant • San Diego

"The Mission, East Village by Fifty & Fifty. This place rules. It's the best kind of healthy dining - it tastes so good, you don't even realize how healthy you're eating. This intimate corner restaurant is famous for their breakfasts (served all day) and a quarter of their menu features chino-latino flare which is unexpected and delicious. Affordable too!"

The Mission / East Village

Hob Coffee East Village

Cafe • San Diego

"Bean Bar, East Village by Fifty & Fifty. Floor to ceiling windows light up this simple, minimal, little coffee corner. A small chalkboard menu will give you all the drinks and pastries you need, and no fluff means everything on the menu is good. It's well-made coffee done right."

Hob Coffee East Village

Basic Bar & Pizza

Pizza restaurant • San Diego

"Basic Pizza, East Village by Fifty & Fifty. This pizza parlor, or warehouse, has a great industrial vibe and pumps out a simple yet satisfying menu of flatbread pizzas, salads, and drinks. Large roll-up garage doors keep the space light, cool, and welcoming on hot days. Pull up a chair, shoot some pool, and enjoy a warehouse that has obviously been a lot of interesting things in its lifetime. And then go back at night when it transforms into a popular hotspot until 2:00am."

Basic Bar & Pizza

The Blind Burro

Mexican restaurant • San Diego

"The Blind Burro, East Village by Fifty & Fifty. This is one of the nicer spots for Mexican food. They have solid happy hour deals, amazing street tacos, cool salads/bowls, and a weekend brunch that features bottomless mimosas. The mole and the cadillac margaritas aren't too bad either. Bonus: live music on Friday & Saturday nights."

The Blind Burro

Water Grill San Diego

Seafood restaurant • San Diego

"Water Grill, East Village by Fifty & Fifty. If oyster bars and lobster tails are your thing, then you've come to the right place. Part of the King Seafood chain of restaurants, this new addition to the neighborhood took no time at all to land on the hotspot list. With wide open interiors, an ideal location, and a handful of live tanks to handpick your dinner, this spot will undoubtedly please the high-end seafood fan. Or interior decorator fans...the massive restaurant has sea-themed accessories for days."

Water Grill San Diego

Roast Coach Coffee Bar

Cafe • San Diego

"Roast Coach Coffee Bar, East Village by Fifty & Fifty. It's exactly what it sounds like. A little coffee wagon parked at the curb, ready to slow-pour a single origin americano or a "dealers choice" (an iced brew energizer sweetened with homemade vanilla syrup with a dusting of cinnamon). It's a daily favorite at Fifty & Fifty."

Roast Coach Coffee Bar

Tin Fish Gaslamp

Restaurant • San Diego

"Tin Fish, East Village by Fifty & Fifty. San Diego is kind of known for seafood, and this is a great spot to give it a shot. Great locally-caught seasonal fish served as tacos, burritos, salads, and plates. Oh, and they have clam chowder bread bowls. Feel free to bring a group since there's plenty of outdoor seating, and enjoy a nice cold beer while you're at it."

Tin Fish Gaslamp

Lucky's Lunch Counter

Breakfast restaurant • San Diego

"Lucky's Lunch Counter, East Village by Fifty & Fifty. Friendly local lunch counters still exist. This small indoor/outdoor neighborhood favorite offers an assortment of sandwiches, specials, and the unusual root beer of the month. The entire space has about 30 seats and has a mid-morning two-hour rush, but after that, you'll see the space empty and waiting for you. Enjoy their Reuben or build your own breakfast burrito if you get hungry early."

Lucky's Lunch Counter

CUCINA sorella

Italian restaurant • San Diego

"Cucina Sorella, Kensington by Noble Intent Studio. Cucina Sorella opened in 2016 and is, in our opinion, the best restaurant in Kensington and one of the best in the uptown area. With pasta made in-house, a creative drink list, and some of the best salads and sides around, we're delighted to welcome Cucina Sorella to the neighborhood.The roasted cauliflower and mascarpone polenta are must-try dishes. All of their primi and pasta dishes feature interesting and unexpected ingredient pairings that are sure to please even the most distinguished palates. Perfect for a night out with friends or a romantic dinner date, Cucina Sorella has ample indoor and outdoor seating, but be sure to make a reservation! Their bar and prep counter are full-service and are fun if you stop in without a reservation. Their quaint shop at the front of the restaurant is the perfect place to grab a gift for a friend or a unique item for your home."

We recommend their lavender champagne and classic French onion soup to start. Dine on the patio for a more casual experience."

Bleu Bohème

Kensington Cafe

American restaurant • San Diego

"Kensington Cafe, Kensington by Noble Intent Studio. Kensington Cafe has long been the only local (read non-chain) coffee shop in Kensington. Morning after morning you'll find the same neighbors, some of them canine, enjoying a morning drink on the patio overlooking Adams Avenue. More than coffee and tea, you'll find a good selection of reasonably priced breakfast, lunch, and dinner items - many named after local streets, and all delicious."

Ponce's Mexican Restaurant

Mexican restaurant • San Diego

"Ponce's, Kensington by Noble Intent Studio. In business since 1969, Ponce's is still family owned and has a line out the door every night. Current owner Ponce Jr. tells us their Tex-Mex menu has all your favorite comfort foods. The most popular items are the chile rellenos and carnitas, but his favorite things are family classics - the cheese enchilada and ground beef taco.The portions are big and the margaritas are strong, so come hungry! Ponce's is a great gathering place for families and groups, but make sure you make a reservation!"

Ponce's Mexican Restaurant

"El Borrego, Kensington by Noble Intent Studio. El Borrego is a bright orange beacon amid the multitude of greige storefronts that line El Cajon Boulevard. Literally translating to "the lamb", El Borrego's specialty is lamb barbacoa - lamb slow cooked over an open fire, which is traditionally a specialty of the Hidalgo region of Mexico. Owners Rosaria and Rodina have been in business at this location for 11 years and say they cook about 2,000 pounds of lamb each month. In addition to their many lamb-based menu items, El Borrego carries your usual Mexican favorites and serves breakfast all day.Rosaria shared with us how the opening of the new YMCA just next door has brought in new business. They're now offering fresh raw juices and detox smoothies - perfect post-workout drinks! They've also found success in the catering business for local events.As we finished our meal, Rodina opened the back door of the restaurant and ushered us into a weed-filled, but surprisingly large outdoor space. She shared her plans of an outdoor beer garden, somewhat of a hipster hangout - something the east side of The Boulevard desperately needs. She said their in-process plans show it could seat 80 people and they'll soon be working out permitting and any other red tape they might encounter. She hopes to have something to show by the end of 2016."

The service is incredible, and the food is second to none in its class in our humble opinion."

Himalayan Cuisine

"West Coast BBQ, La Mesa by Caava Design. West Coast BBQ has the best BBQ food in La Mesa and probably the most extensive local craft beer selection. Located in a generic strip mall, don’t let appearances be deceiving, this place is for the serious foodie. The pulled pork is to die for and their insane garlic fries will inform those closest to you (or within a 20 foot radius) what you ate for about a week (not kidding)."

KINDRED

Cocktail bar • San Diego

"Kindred, South Park. Kindred is an amazing new bar and restaurant serving up mystical cocktails and delectable dishes. Their style is a unique juxtaposition of feminine trappings with a hardcore metal aesthetic that you just have to see in person. The walls are covered with ornate pink wall paper that, upon closer inspection, depict eyeballs dueling it out with broadswords. The trim of the whole place is clean and dainty white and gold, with an inscription over the door that reads, "Hardcore will never die, but you will." When you visit, make sure to pay tribute to the glossy black four-eyed wolf-snake-skull totem mounted on the wall. Don't be intimidated though -- the staff are super friendly and the service is spot on. All of the plates and drinks are unique and tasty beyond expectations, so go forth and start your quest to try everything on the menu. Also, did we mention everything is vegan?! This fact will be an afterthought for you too when you try your first sip or bite at Kindred."
