The Loma Club

The new operators of The Loma Club at Liberty Station nine-hole golf course recently debuted new food and cocktail menus, which they describe as “classic country club fare but with upscale twists.”

New dishes include French toast sticks stuffed with strawberry jam and cream cheese; chickpea nachos with Buffalo-style sauce; cheesesteak potato skins, and more. Salads, burgers, and club sandwiches are also available. Visitors can end their visit on a sweet note with an order of powdered sugar donut holes named “bucket of balls.”

The revised cocktail list includes “On the Green,” which combines You & Yours dry gin with elderflower, cucumber, and lime. There’s also a “Jungle Birdie” made with pineapple rum and Campari. 2960 Truxtun Road, 619-222-4653, thelomaclub.com.

Newport Pizza and Ale House

In the wake of Newport Pizza and Ale House (5050 Newport Ave.), which closed about a month ago after operating for 36 years, the establishment’s pizza ovens have landed in a back area of OB Brewery at 5041 Newport Ave.

Both businesses are owned by Mike Tajran, who wasn’t available to answer whether he will indeed resume his pizza operation at the nearby brewhouse. But a former employee from Newport Pizza, who requested anonymity, said there’s also a possibility Tajran will look for a new pizzeria location. Stand by for updates.

Seven Seas Craft Beer & Food Festival

The annual Seven Seas Craft Beer & Food Festival at SeaWorld gets underway on March 7 and continues for nine consecutive weekends through May 3. The event spotlights an array of international cuisines and 150 beer options of every style from nearly 30 breweries. It also features live entertainment across three stages.

New to this year’s list of represented countries are Germany, Spain, Argentina, and China. Among the dishes offered from some of those areas are bratwurst, homemade pretzels, and pork belly bao buns. In total, there are 45 food items in the lineup, served from 11 different themed areas throughout the park. Assorted wines and specialty drinks are also in the offing.

Access to the festival requires regular park admission, after which food and drink samples can be purchased a la carte ($5 to $7.50 per food sample) as well as through 10-item and 15-item punch cards. They cost $52 and $67 respectively.

In addition, SeaWorld’s “Waterfront” area will be utilized to afford patrons additional seating for eating and drinking while enjoying views of the bay. 500 SeaWorld Drive, 619-222-4732, seaworldsandiego.com.

Safi Mediterranean Grill

A taste of the Middle East awaits in Pacific Beach at the new Safi Mediterranean Grill. The fast-casual eatery opened recently to an affordable menu of sprightly salads, house-made hummus, samosas, gyros, shawarma, and more. Salads, pasta, and pizzas also comprise the menu.

Though quaint in size, the establishment stands out with its retro-style booths, light wall colors and bright-red trim. In-house delivery service is available. 4614 Mission Blvd.

Taco Surf

With an impending change of ownership coming sometime in March at Taco Surf Pacific Beach, existing proprietor Cindy McLarty tells us the buyers, Matt and Melanie Gilmore, have committed to keeping everything intact once escrow is completed.

“They want customers who come in to not even notice we’ve changed hands,” said McLarty while pointing out there’s talk about adding some vegan items to the menu. “But that’s it,” she emphasized. “The food and interior will remain exactly the same.” 4657 Mission Blvd., 858-272-3877.

Wood Yu

An impressively designed breakfast-lunch restaurant that combines Baja and Asian influences has opened in the Torrey Pines area. Named Wood Yu, it is one of the latest ventures involving celebrity chef Brian Malarkey of Puffer Malarkey Collective.

The morning menu reveals standard-American items like acai bowls and breakfast wraps. The lunch list, however, delves into such dishes guacamole with shoyu; al pastor banh mi sandwiches, shaking beef with salsa verde, and more. Beer, wine, and cocktails are also available.

The indoor-outdoor space previously served partly as an office lobby. It now incorporates lush greenery, drop lighting, and a large Asian-landscape mural. 10578 Science Center Drive, 858-812-5558, woodyu.com.

Smallgoods Cheese Shop & Cafe

Cheese mongers Jenny and Mike Eastwood have made the leap from the San Diego’s farmers market scene to a new retail outlet in La Jolla. Their venture, Smallgoods Cheese Shop & Cafe, upholds a tradition of selling select cheeses and cured meats from American producers, just as they still do at the weekend farmers markets in La Jolla, Little Italy, and Hillcrest.

“I can extend my cheese selection at the cafe much more than I can at the farmers markets,” said Jenny. “We have about 20 different kinds here as opposed to our market selection of about six cheeses.”

The cafe component also allows for coffee drinks as well as breakfast and lunch dishes using ingredients sourced from the outdoor markets. 7524 La Jolla Blvd., 858-886-7217, smallgoodsusa.com.

Catania

Fresh off earning a listing in the 2019 Michelin Guide, the coastal Italian-style eatery in La Jolla known as Catania, will celebrate its fifth anniversary on March 17. In doing so, it will present a multi-course family-style meal that day for $49 per person. In addition, the restaurant is offering a “best hits” pasta tasting for $35, which includes five different pastas. 7863 Girard Ave., 858-551-5105, cataniasd.com.

I have never seen anything that has worked so effective like Chief Dr Lucky spell that was able to bring my lover back to me within 48 hours. I run into luck on that beautiful day that i found Chief Dr Lucky contact details on an article that someone wrote about Chief Dr Lucky i had no choice that to contact and trust him. Chief Dr Lucky shocked me because i was not expecting to get a positive result as fast as that because the way my boyfriend left me was terrible, he lift me for my friend and i was told by Chief Dr Lucky that she used a black magic spell on him. Since the return of my lover i have made a promise that i will write out Chief Dr Luck on the internet and his contact details are 2348132777335 and via email: Chiefdrlucky@gmail.com

Love spell doctor has brought my husband back to me after 6 months of separation. My husband left me and wanted a divorce because of a young girl who is young enough to be her daughter. Your love spell has reunited my family once again after mourning and tears that I am now a single mom, but my teas has turn to Joy with your amazing return lover spell. I am grateful for everything. Anyone experiencing heartbreak and needs their lover back should contact lovespelldoctor0@gmail. com and that will be the end of your problems in that relationship.

I am writing this comment with tears of joy. My marriage fell apart after 6 months because my mother In-law asked my husband to divorce me and marriage the woman she betroth to him as his wife. All this drama started happening in our marriage and my husband left me and our one month baby just so he could do as his mom wants him to.

I was in tears and shattered for 6 months because I could not imagine my whole life crumbling in front of me. I could not continue with work and baby responsibilities so I quit working. Things became more difficult until my best friend advised me to meet a love doctor that fixed her marriage with a RETURN LOVER SPELL that works as fast as 12 hours after casting the spell. I concord and decided to contact this spell doctor and guess what. My husband came to my mom house with his family in less than 12 hours after casting the spell. Even his mom came back asking me for forgiveness and also to reconcile with my husband who left me. They have been coming for the past 3 days and now everyone is asking me to take him back. I am so grateful for what this love spell doctor has done for me. I am thinking of accepting his apologize and move on as family just as my mom advised.

Anyone who wants their lover back should write to love doctor on Love Spell doctor on lovespelldoctor0@gmail.com

God bless you as you find your happiness through this testimony.
