It was home to San Diego Police Headquarters and is now an upscale place to shop and dine.
Before entering the courtyard, we took a walk around the perimeter to view the architecture and landscaping.
Tenants at The Headquarters include:
- Aaron Chang Ocean Art Gallery, ARTonage, Bruxie, Dallmann Fine Chocolates, Eddie V's, Gelato Paradiso, Geppetto’s Toys, Kitson, Life is Good, Lolo, Madison San Diego, Pizzeria Mozza, preFAB, Puesto, Seaside Paper-Home, Seasons 52, Simply Local Emporium, Starbucks, Sunglass Hut, The Cheesecake Factory, Urban Beach House, Venissimo Cheese, Verde.
|Inside the open-air shopping center.|
|The Kitson on Robertson Boulevard in Los Angeles is known for celebrity sightings. |
Wonder if any will venture down to San Diego for a trendy t-shirt or naughty gnome.
|Now is that any way to celebrate the season!|
I was particularly interested to visit Simply Local, featuring vendors with locally-owned businesses.
|The owner told us that they used original doors from police headquarters|
to make this desk for the front of their store. Cool - I love old doors!
And had to try Pizzeria Mozza, because duh, it's pizza and it is the only San Diego location for the highly acclaimed restaurant from top chefs Mario Batali, Joseph Bastianich and Nancy Silverton.
The place was packed, inside and out.
Next time we'll know to make a reservation.
