Round Table Pizza

A grand opening was held April 25 for Mission Beach’s latest addition to the local pizza market, Round Table Pizza at 3146 Mission Blvd.

In 1959, Bill Larson opened the first Round Table Pizza in Menlo Park, Calif. He envisioned a gathering place where you could “share a little pizza with someone you love.” Larson believed in using gold-standard ingredients and time-honored recipes to bake hand-crafted pizza worth sharing.

Today, Round Table continues to pay homage to Larson’s vision by continuing to use only superior ingredients in its pizzas, along with many of his original recipes. Whether you’ve been a client for generations, or are new to the family, guests are encouraged to take a seat at the table and experience Pizza Royalty first hand.

Urban Couture

Nestled amid Pacific Beach's eateries, bars and yoga studios at 1041 Garnet Ave. between Cass and Dawes streets, Prospect clothing boasts no signage or lighting.

Founder Justin Valley, a former Marine from Trinidad and Tobago, held a grand opening for his beach storefront headwater boutique in March. Besides its own clothing and an array of footwear, Prospect’s PB location carries products from local brands such as MondaySuck and Rottweiler.

Prospect plans to continue expanding its products, and may possibly collaborate with a major sneaker or apparel company. It’s an increasingly popular trend, with streetwear brands and boutiques including Undefeated Inc., Union Los Angeles and KITH releasing products in partnership with Nike.

NBA all-star and SDSU grad Kawhi Leonard recently agreed to a long-term sneaker deal with New Balance, which sells lifestyle footwear through Prospect.

The storefront is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. six days a week.

An international apparel and footwear retailer, Vans is opening a new retail store in the Gaslamp Quarter, as well as in Pacific Beach in a new building at 4462 Mission Blvd., in late summer 2019.

Noting PB and the Gaslamp Quarter are “logical markets” for Van’s retail operations, David Maxwell at Colliers international said, “The bustling beach area and vibrant downtown scene present ideal opportunities for Vans to reach their target demographic in both residents and the steady stream of tourists who visit San Diego.”

Maxwell added Vans’ new PB location represents “a rare opportunity to establish a retail presence in one of San Diego’s most popular beach communities at a brand new development. The site is directly between the highly trafficked Grand and Garnet avenue corridors, and right across the street from popular neighborhood eatery Breakfast Republic.”

Vans has 14 other stores and outlets in San Diego County. For more information visit

City Tacos

This fast-casual Mexican eatery chain will soon bring designer tacos to Pacific Beach, taking over the space next to Crystal Pier previously occupied by Izakaya Pacific Beach.

Gerry Torres and chef/partner Eduardo Baeza opened the flagship City Tacos in North Park in 2014. 

Moving into the prime unit left dormant by last year's departure of Izakaya, the new City Tacos hopes to open by this summer to take advantage of the busy beach season. 

The PB branch will serve an expanded menu of seafood, meat, vegetarian and vegan tacos, as well as desserts, Micheladas, and Mexican and craft beers.

City Tacos is dedicated to combining traditional recipes with SoCal flavor. Meat, fish, vegetarian, even Paleo offerings present something for every palate. Dishes can also be topped with a variety of creative salsas to customize each bite.
