Opened in 2015 by the Sycamore Den team to function as a stand-alone eatery and as food option to complete the cocktail bar, Burnside pivoted earlier this year and relaunched with added seating, more beer options and a retooled menu.
Citing challenges including size limitations and costs, the owners of the restaurant announced today that they have sold the property to another local restaurateur, Hiroshi Tokairin. Tokairin, who runs Ototo Sushi in Clairemont and Liberty Station's Sushiya, plans to put a different concept into the space.
Sending a heartfelt thank you to Normal Heights and their loyal regulars, the Burnside crew says that it will continue to operate Burnside's food catering arm and doesn't rule out opening the brick and mortar eatery in a larger location. Owner Nick Zanoni says that this Sunday, October 2 will be its final day of service on Adams Avenue.
