Cannonball, the rooftop restaurant at Belmont Park, is scheduled to reopen on April 1 after a $3.5 million building renovation. Created by Eat.Drink.Sleep., Cannonball will be the largest oceanfront rooftop bar and restaurant in the city.

It will feature three distinct dining experiences including a modern bar and lounge, Pacific Rim inspired dining space and a glass sushi cube overlooking the Pacific Ocean featuring a traditional sushi bar. The restaurant is located on the southwest corner of Belmont Park above Draft on the south Mission Beach boardwalk at 3105 Ocean Front Walk.

Cannonball will feature small plates and share plates created by Belmont Park executive chef Brad Wise. Share-worthy plates include chicken wings with teriyaki sauce and sesame seeds, plancha skewers with lemongrass chicken, Brussel sprouts and beef tongue, along with salmon tataki accompanied by a house made tomatillo ponzu sauce and jalapeño.

Those dining in the sushi cube will find an upscale dining experience with a more traditional Japanese focus. Sushi chef Hugo Arreguin’s innovative sushi roll creations include the bellyflop roll, the cali dreaming roll and the volcano roll. To complement the cuisine, Cannonball will feature Japanese beers, sake and beachy craft cocktails focused on clear spirits.

The 9,400 square foot space featuring 420 seats was designed by Colkitt & Co. and Hollis Brand Culture. The glass-enclosed sushi cube has 42 seats and opens up to sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean.

The space will showcase a variety of aquatic themed elements such as traditional poolside furnishings. Additional design elements include pool tiles lining the restaurant perimeter with watermarks and signage. 

Cannonball will be open for lunch and dinner starting at 11 a.m. daily. For information, call (858) 228-9304 or visit
