Although she’s been running Sipz Vegetarian Kitchen for 20 years, with a first location in the Clairemont area followed by another in North Park, owner Sylvia Le says that gearing up to open her newest Sipz outpost in downtown La Jolla feels like starting an entirely different business.
Scheduled to debut Friday, April 17 at 4 p.m. with modern new design by MY Studio ID, the 2,000-square-foot Pearl Street eatery will launch with only takeout and delivery; its regular hours will be 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
Her other Sipz locations have remained operation during the shutdown, and the latest branch features favorite dishes pulled from both menus, although La Jolla’s lineup will be exclusively vegan. Known for cooking a wide range of Asian cuisines, Le’s brother/co-owner is also developing new offerings that will be introduced here.
Although times are uncertain, Le tells Eater that she’s still hoping to continue to grow the Sipz brand, sharing that the restaurant is looking to expand to Encinitas and Ocean Beach.
