Point Loma's food options are steadily increasing, thanks to the serious influx of eateries into Liberty Station and new concepts coming to the surrounding neighborhood. Newly soft opened on Rosecrans is West Side Tap House, in a corner spot that has been the home to a couple well-known local bakeries.
New proprietors and Point Loma residents Manisha and Mick Moore have spent the last eight months remodeling the space to include a full kitchen and a new dining room and bar that opens onto a spacious sidewalk patio. The Moore's previously operated a juice bar and cafe in Old Town, but West Side fulfills their dream of owning a sit-down restaurant in the neighborhood.
Manisha Moore, who worked as a personal chef for a decade, has created a menu described as "fusion cuisine" with a twist. The soft opening menu, which will start small and expand in increments, includes bacon spring rolls, Shanghai potstickers, spinach mushroom miso soup, and classic English bangers and mash; it will eventually offer everything from fish and chips to burgers, pho, and Thai and Laotian specialities.
Open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., West Side features wine and 40 beer taps that are a mix of macro and micro brews; the opening menu includes local craft handles from Fall Brewing, Bay City Brewing, Green Flash and more. Weekend brunch is coming soon, along with a 3 to 6 p.m. daily happy hour offering select draft beer for $3.
