They first opened BO-beau Kitchen + Bar in 2010 and are now primed to add another Ocean Beach location to their stable of restaurants; Eater has confirmed that the Cohn Restaurant Group has purchased a 10,000 square foot building on Newport Avenue that was previously occupied by Portugalia Restaurant, which closed in 2011.
Last fall, the San Diego Reader reported that the building was on the auction block, and notes that it comes with "13 parking spaces".
A name and concept for the two-story property, which includes a full liquor license, has yet to be decided, but reps from the group tell us that the site's transformation will happen within the year.
