According to San Diego Union-Tribune
, three new restaurants will be opening very soon in San Diego, transforming empty buildings into hit dining opportunities. San Diegans can expect two of the three to open this very month, True Food Kitchen in Fashion Valley mall (which actually opens today) and Uptown Tavern in Hillcrest, slated for mid-July.
True Food Kitchen
Opening today in the Fashion Valley Mall, True Food's newest location is the chain's fifth opening in their 15 site plan that spans the next three to four years (including locations in Santa Monica, Newport Beach, and Phoenix). True Food's chef, Michael Stebner, says that despite the restaurant's name, it's not strictly a health food restaurant, though the menu does take inspiration from the anti-inflammatory food pyramid created by author Dr. Andrew Weil (who also happens to be a partner in the restaurant chain). Many of the dishes rely on ingredients that work to lower inflammation in the body, such as soy, ginger, turmeric, and dark chocolate.
