NATIONAL CITY— Cool news for National City; it's getting the newly-revamped, 5,500-square-foot Big Ben Specialty Market(108 E 8th St. ) that'll focus on fresh food and locally-grown produce. San Diego Mag says it will also house an open-air eatery and exhibition kitchen called Grill House at Big Ben that'll serve house-smoked meats and more. A soft opening is scheduled for later this month. [SDMag]
