Porky eatery Carnitas' Snack Shack is a step closer to setting up shop on Harbor Walk at the Unified Port of San Diego. The the Board of Port Commissioners recently approved a lease for the local restaurant to open a cafe at 1004 North Harbor Dr.
A statement from the Port of San Diego reads:
The new Carnitas' on the waterfront of San Diego Bay will include a locally sourced craft beer garden component to augment its successful "pork centric" menu. Its menu will include as many locally sourced ingredients as possible.
The new Carnitas' will be housed in an artistically designed structure that is part of the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan Phase 1 project. It includes multiple, angled glass panels of varying colors. Carnitas' will be responsible for tenant improvements, which include exterior glass, interior finishes including restaurant equipment, flooring, ceiling, heating and air conditioning equipment, utilities, millwork and interior walls. Construction is anticipated to take about six months.
The cafe is just part of the port's ongoing efforts to revitalize the waterfront.
