With its grand unveiling currently set for early May, the sweeping Sky Deck project coming to Del Mar Highlands Town Center has officially finalized its food lineup. Inspired by Barcelona’s El Nacional, the 20,000-square-foot, two-level project is configured as nine full-service restaurants that happen to share one roof, rather than a food hall with individual stalls and communal seating.
In addition to the eateries, each with dedicated dining areas, there will also be a central cocktail bar and an outdoor terrace with three beer tasting rooms housed on an outdoor terrace.
Rounding out the roster, which includes new outposts from Ambrogio15 and Le Parfait Paris plus the Bay Area’s Marafuku Ramen, is a new concept from restaurateur Ethan Yang, who owns Zen Modern Asian Bistro in the Sabre Springs community and runs Mein St. Asian Kitchen at the Little Italy Food Hall, that will be contributing even more Japanese cuisine.
Called Glass Box Asian Coastal Inspired Kitchen + Bar and ringing in at 1,837 square feet, it will be comprised of a glass box-enclosed sushi and raw bar, with chefs preparing omakase-style meals. Other seating will be available, along with an extended menu that includes yakitori, other small plates, and Japanese whisky
Mike Spilky of Location Matters, who leased the project, said. “We could not be prouder to have been a part of such a visionary investment by the landlord and tenants. We wish all of them huge success with their openings.”
