DEL MAR—Longtime San Diego restauranteur Tracy Borkum is bringing her successful Cucina Enoteca concept to the revamped Flower Hill Promenade. The two-story wine bar and wine shop is set to open in early 2013 and will be joined by several new eateries, including another outpost of Burger Lounge. [Patch, RSF Review]

LA JOLLA—A fundraiser for Scripps Institution of Oceanography, hosted by George's California Modern's Trey Foshee that was originally planned for November 10, is being postponed thanks to Hurricane Sandy. The special guest, New York chef Jonathan Waxman, canceled his trip here to deal with the havoc caused by the storm to his Manhattan restaurant, Barbuto. A book-signing for Waxman at Chino Farm is also being rescheduled. [U-T]
