Italian Coming to Hillcrest; Pizza for Del Mar

HILLCREST Urban Eats, which was Taco Bahn for a hot minute before it closed and reopened with an entirely new concept, has shuttered for good. In its place (3850 5th Avenue) will be Parma Cucina Italiana. [EaterWire]

DEL MAR Another restaurant switcheroo, this time on Via de la Valle. Pasta Pronto has morphed into Urban Pi (under the same ownership as Urban Plates in Del Mar Highlands Town Center), and is now serving thin crust pizzas. The pi(es)can be custom-made sweet or savory, and are cooked in a hearth stone oven. [EaterWire]

RANCHO PENASQUITOS—A follow-up on Eater's report of the Original Sab E Lee's plans for a second location, this time in North County. Doors opened in late December and initial Yelp reports are good; people who wish they could buy beer to go with their Thai food at the Linda Vista eatery will be excited to know that this new shop is expecting their beer and wine license shortly.
