New Downtown Lunch; Beer Spot Launches; Kickstarting Ceviche

A wine bar does lunch, a new Cohn restaurant opens and a ceviche concept kicks off.

DOWNTOWNThe Flight Path wine bar, which took off on Kettner earlier this year, is expanding its hours of operation starting next month and adding a new lunch menu that centers around variations on a grilled cheese sandwich, from bacon, avocado and cheddar to proscuitto and brie. There will also be salads and house made soups including roasted tomato and basil bisque and crocks of French onion soup. [EaterWire]

UTCThe Cohn Restaurant Group's switcheroo of their La Jolla Strip Club into a new craft beer concept called Draft Republic is complete; the eatery has soft opened with daily lunch and dinner plus Sunday brunch. The menu includes housemade sausages, flatbreads, sandwiches and burgers, including one called the Hotter than Hell burger that's topped with pickled jalapeño, ghost pepper jack cheese and habanero jam. Eating it requires you to sign a waiver. [EaterWire]

KICKSTARTIN'Local chef Christopher Martinez, who owned a restaurant in Mexico and just returned to San Diego after cooking in New Zealand, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a farmer's market booth that'll be dedicated to all kinds of ceviche. Pascola Cevicheria is seeking $13,000 to fund start-up costs for the business, which also plans cater events and pop-up at local breweries. [EaterWire]
