The Hake Shutters Ocean View Spot in La Jolla

The seafood restaurant closes on Prospect Street

Five years after arriving on Prospect Street, The Hake has shuttered. The upscale La Jolla eatery, which sits below street level, started as a 3,400-square-foot modern brasserie with roots in Mexico City. In 2016, it underwent a pricey redesign and remodel that added on 2,000 square feet of additional dining and bar space as well as panoramic views of La Jolla Cove.

Serving a seafood-based menu that drew from Mexican and Mediterranean cuisines, the restaurant suffered a kitchen shake up last fall and was currently led by chefs Diego Lopez (sea180º and Bleu Boheme) and Mickey Martinez (Juniper & Ivy and Stone Brewing), who had just launched lunch and weekend brunch service earlier this month.

The property has been on the market for some time and the well-designed space is turnkey; Eater is hearing that a sale is pending.
