Con Pane Opens + Liberty Public Market Welcomes New Tenants
Liberty Station’s surge of new restaurant and retail openings are an optimistic glimmer of hope for industries that have been crushed during the pandemic. And it appears that the neighborhood’s abundance of open-air promenades and parks give San Diegans peace of mind to safely enjoy at a distance.
Con Pane Rustic Breads and Cafe
The highly-anticipated revival of Con Pane Rustic Breads & Café has arrived. Earlier this year, the Cohn Restaurant Group (CRG) announced its acquisition of Con Pane, promising a faithful comeback of the beloved eatery. Inheriting the entirety of Con Pane’s recipes, CRG has been working alongside the bakery’s original owner, Catherine Perez, to reinstate time-honored favorites and train their new culinary team.
Con Pane is open for takeout and delivery, rolling out with a comprehensive lineup of daily-made artisan breads, sandwiches, breakfast pastries and more. The limited-time Holiday Menu features two seasonal pastry offerings: an Apricot Panettone and Dresden Stollen. While the seasonal bread program flaunts a festive Epi Wreath and savory Gruyere & Chive loaves, in addition to Cranberry Orange Walnut and the ever-popular Pane Cioccolata.
From dynamic brother duo Bella Kim and Gene Kim, Slurp delivers authentic Singaporean cuisine to Liberty Public Market. The eatery’s signature ‘Slurp’ cups feature layers of broth, protein and noodle. Standout offerings include the Shrimp Wonton Slurp and Duck Slurp. Slurp also dishes out rice bowls and bite-sized apps, like Cream Cheese Wontons and Curry Puffs.
New Boheme Collective
A trendsetter’s haven, New Bohème Collective is the Market’s newest retailer. Owned by two fashion industry pros, Cindy Fletcher (Kai and Skye Boutique) and Leah Niswonger (LEAH), New Bohème is a curated collection of quintessential Southern California must-haves. The boutique is filled with a plethora of décor, rattan accessories, dainty jewelry, stylish sunhats and more.
Tortas El Chapulin
While San Diego boasts an abundance of taco and burrito shops, Tortas el Chapulin serves up a flavorful selection of Mexican-style deli sandwiches. Their lineup of tortas includes Adoba Pork, loaded with refined beans, sharp cheddar, avocado, pickled red onions and salsa roja, and the Cubana with roasted Cuban pork, ham, pickles, Swiss cheese and salsa verde served on toasted bread.
Jacob Bartlett and Eric Gallerstein—the LPM veterans behind Mastiff Sausage Co. and Fluster Cluck Hot Chicken—opened their newest food stall concept last week. Inspired by retro SoCal diners, Rad Burger is specializing in smashed flat-top patties using premium quality meat and veggie options. The burger joint also flaunts a program of crave-inducing shakes and malts, including vegan shakes.
Coming to Liberty Public Marketing in 2021
Recently named “Best Chef” by San Diego Magazine, Phillip Esteban is gearing up to launch his first-ever concept within Liberty Public Market. Esteban’s quick-service eatery will be an extension of White Rice, his popular ghost kitchen that has been operating as delivery-only since March. The program of savory rice bowls showcases a fresh take on Filipino cuisine, converging bold flavors and authentic technique.
Pure is an innovative and evolutionary açaí, smoothie and juice bar. Their menu of fresh-squeezed beverages and healthy bites is curated with wellness and powerful nutrition in mind.
See you there….and stay healthy, San Diego!
