Terramar Creates a Dining Mecca at The Headquarters with an Exceptional Array of Restaurants, from Established Restaurateurs to Rising Stars Cuisine for every palate with sumptuous indoor and al fresco dining at San Diego’s premier seaside shopping, dining and entertainment destination opening this fall Business Wire SAN DIEGO -- May 1, 2013 Terramar Retail Centers unveiled today its widely-anticipated collection of top restaurants for The Headquarters – Pizzeria Mozza, The Cheesecake Factory, Puesto, Eddie V’s, and Seasons 52. The Headquarters is a $40 million adaptive re-use and renovation of the Old Police Headquarters building into an approximately 100,000-square-foot retail, dining and entertainment destination currently under construction in the Seaport District of San Diego. “Great food is at the core of great destinations. Our team was creative and selective in attracting the right blend of dining for The Headquarters,” said Steve Bowers, CEO of Terramar Retail Centers. “This collection creates a casually sophisticated destination for San Diego residents and visitors.” *Pizzeria Mozza is on every foodie’s list. The Headquarters is the only San Diego location for this highly acclaimed restaurant from top chefs Mario Batali, Joseph Bastianich and Nancy Silverton. Pizzeria Mozza, first launched in Hollywood, is widely praised for its creative, authentic Italian menu featuring artisanal pizzas, pastas and salads and a carefully crafted wine list. At The Headquarters, Pizzeria Mozza’s 4,350-square-foot restaurant has an upbeat, energetic atmosphere with its open kitchen, wine bar, indoor dining room and central dining patio. There are also two private dining rooms – one upstairs in the former Police Chief’s office (34 guests) and a more intimate room for 11 guests downstairs. In addition, the chefs are bringing their new Mozza2Go concept to The Headquarters, currently only available in Los Angeles, so residents can enjoy the cuisine of Pizzeria Mozza at an outdoor concert or private picnic on the scenic shores of the Seaport District. *The Cheesecake Factory, known for its upscale casual dining, fresh bakery, generous portions and legendary cheesecake is a perennial favorite across America and internationally. Its 10,400-square-foot restaurant will feature its signature décor that is as creative and imaginative as its menu. *Puesto is a La Jolla locals favorite known for its refined flavors of Mexican street food with an emphasis on fresh, sustainably grown, all natural and organic ingredients. It is opening its second location and first full-service restaurant in 4,500 square feet at The Headquarters to bring exceptional service as well as gourmet Mexican dishes to San Diego. Puesto will also offer an innovative cocktail menu with an exotic selection of hand crafted creations from Mexico’s best flavors, including two new drinks only at The Headquarters: the El Pueblito – a rustic but refined take on an old fashioned with smoky mescal, muddle Luxardo cherry, orange, demerara sugar, bitters and orange flower water; and Espina – rose petal infused tequila, nopales, habanero and fresh lime. The restaurant will combine its traditional taco line, a full service bar and living room along with a beautiful dining room all designed by Thomas Schoos, the creative genius behind the décor of Tao’s Las Vegas. *Eddie V’s offers premium aged steaks and fresh seafood in a comfortable, elegant and historic setting reminiscent of the glamorous dining of old Hollywood. The open-design, two-level,7,500-square-foot restaurant will also feature a two-level wine tower, the V Lounge with live jazz, classic cocktails and assorted appetizers. Located in the former courthouse section of the building, there are two private dining rooms upstairs. *Seasons 52 is a fresh grill restaurant offering an upscale healthy lifestyle cuisine – no dish contains over 475 calories – with an extensive menu that includes chicken, seafood and steaks. The restaurant features a vast assortment of wines as well as cocktails created with a culinary approach that combines fresh ingredients with high-quality spirits. The 9,900-square-foot restaurant is designed as a warm and inviting yet light and modern space with ample quiet seating, a large bar area and patio. Located at 789 West Harbor Drive, adjacent to Seaport Village, within walking distance of the San Diego Convention Center and numerous waterfront hotels as well as downtown businesses and high-rise residences, The Headquarters is a convenient and attractive destination for visitors and residents. The Old Police Headquarters building opened in 1939. Terramar is working closely with each restaurant to incorporate its signature look, signage and storefront into the historic buildings at The Headquarters. “The integration of the historic structures with the modern uses is transforming the property while maintaining its integrity and character,” noted Bowers. The Headquarters is comprised of four existing buildings, set around an interior courtyard. Upon completion it will offer up to 30 shops and restaurants that will bring a new level of quality retail and dining to this dynamic downtown bay area property. The project is a key component of the Port’s vision for the future of San Diego’s waterfront. “Our leasing team is currently assembling an equally engaging mix of shops and boutiques for The Headquarters,” noted Bowers. The Headquarters’ main courtyard will feature fountains and colorful landscaping creating an attractive setting for al fresco dining and a natural environment to program a variety of outdoor entertainment. Appealing plazas and meandering walkways will entice visitors to stroll, linger and relax, enjoying the seaside setting with its sunshine and breezes. The Headquarters will also offer guests a premier level of service with an accomplished full-time concierge staff and valet parking.
