Outdoor dining space has never been more essential for a restaurant’s survival, so a new eatery and bar scheduled to grand open Wednesday, July 29 in Liberty Station has a leg up since more than half of its footprint is dedicated to patio service.
The Presley replaces Fireside by The Patio, one of the former properties owned by local businesswoman Gina Champion-Cain, who pleaded guilty yesterday to defrauding investors out of $400 million. Redesigned by Good Time Design, the hospitality group behind Moonshine Beach, Moonshine Flats, and The Blind Burro, the 3,400-square-foot restaurant features three bars and greenery-filled outdoor lounges that have been spaced with socially-distanced seating that includes several swing benches.
Named for Good Time Design CEO Tyler Hauter’s seven-year-old daughter, The Presley is geared to be a hangout for all ages, with plans to offer boozy Sunday brunch as well as live music. Executive chef Todd Nash’s menu ranges from flatbreads, sandwiches, and salads to dishes such as everything-crusted seared ahi, mussels with linguica and lobster broth, and grilled pork prime rib flatbreads, sandwiches, and salads while drinks from John Amato include a Dole Whip mimosa, frozen gin fizz, and classic lava flow.
It will start off operating Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
