New restaurant will open soon

A group of Scripps Ranch friends and neighbors have teamed up to bring a long-awaited local dining and social experience to their community. Public House 131 – whose name pays homage to zip code 92131 – promises to deliver a familiar, neighborhood vibe where patrons will feel more like friends than customers, while enjoying locally-sourced, farm-to-table food, and local San Diego craft brews and spirits. Final touches and preparations are underway at the new restaurant, which is set to open in early August at 10393 Spring Canyon Road in the Scripps Ranch Marketplace.

Owner-operators Bob Adamson and John Lancia are Scripps Ranch residents who have lived in the community for more than 20 years. Adamson is a restaurant industry veteran who is part owner of Legacy Brewing Tap & Kitchen on Miramar Road, as well as Luigi’s at the Beach in Mission Beach.

Early last summer, Adamson began actively pursuing the idea of opening another restaurant. He said that he had always had his eye on the Scripps Ranch Marketplace as a potential location, but no space was available at the time. When Pizza Rev departed unexpectedly in August of last year leaving a vacancy, however, he knew it was time to work on securing investors and making his vision of a neighborhood restaurant in Scripps Ranch a reality.

Lancia, who is heading up marketing for the new establishment, explained that he and his partners are very much focused on delivering a local ambiance.

“We want it to be like Cheers in Boston, where everybody knows your name,” he said.

Adamson added that another key element of the local focus is in the sourcing of their ingredients.

“Our objective is to try to source everything locally,” he said. “We have a pig farmer in Bonita, and we’ll get our beef from Escondido. The beer is all going to be local – we won’t have anything from outside of San Diego County. We’re going to source a lot of the spirits from local distillers in San Diego. We’ll have farm-to-table food; everything will be made from scratch.”

Leading the kitchen at Public House 131 will be Chef Scott Floyd, who has served as executive chef for a number of restaurants in Los Angeles and Orange County, including Salt Creek Grille in Dana Point, where he worked for six years. According to Adamson, Floyd has also been involved with opening five brewpubs in southern California.

Floyd and Adamson collaborated on designing a well-rounded menu that caters to everything from the casual diner stopping in for a quick lunch to a couple out for a delectable date-night dinner to a Little League team seeking to replenish after a game. Casual meal offerings include a variety of gourmet salads, soups, sandwiches and custom burgers, including vegetarian options. Steak, seafood and pork dishes are among carefully-crafted entrée choices. Of course, plenty of small bites on the menu complement a collection of local craft beer and spirits, which will be served during lunch, dinner and a late afternoon happy hour.

In community online forums, where initial buzz about the new restaurant began several months ago, some expressed confusion over whether the establishment would be an extension of the similarly-named Public House La Jolla. Adamson explained that there is no affiliation, stating that “public house” is simply a term like “gastropub” and does not refer to a specific brand or chain of restaurants. While literally defined as “a tavern,” according to Dictionary.com, the restaurant’s owners do not intend for the establishment to be known merely as a bar.

“Our priority will be families,” Adamson said. “We’re going to have not just a kid’s menu, but a teen menu.”

Lancia added that all of the restaurant’s investors have children of their own, ranging from elementary school through recent high school graduates, so they are personally invested in ensuring that the restaurant provides a welcoming environment for the many young families in Scripps Ranch. A quick stroll through the dining room revealed the presence of high chairs, offering some evidence of their commitment.

Hiring of wait staff, hosts and bartenders is in progress, and in keeping with the restaurant’s neighborhood vibe, the owners have made an effort to attract local talent. Some positions have yet to be filled, however, and they welcome members of the community to apply.

Further details will be added to the restaurant’s Facebook page as it becomes available, including hours, menus and date of opening. Visit Facebook and search “Public House 131” for more information.

    A no deposit bonus code is a promotion to entice deposits. Online casinos fight to get players’ attention in an incredibly competitive market, and a no deposit bonus is an effective way of doing that. Once the player signs up, the online casino hopes the games and other features inspire the player to make a deposit. It’s a risk that clearly pays off in the long run, as online casinos continue to offer no deposit bonus codes to new signups – even though many turn that bonus money into cash winnings.
