Yard House opened its second San Diego location late last month in a prime location outside the movie theaters at the Westfield Mission Valley. The media were invited to check out the new site on Sept. 18, and Mission Valley News was there.
General Manager Ben Benzon said the restaurant, led by Chef Dan Castillo, will employ 200. The eclectic menu highlights street tacos, grilled burgers, pizza and Gardein for diners who don’t eat meat.
The new restaurant, which looks like an updated version of the one that has been in Downtown’s Gaslamp District for almost 13 years, features a spectacular island bar with 130 craft beers on tap. Sporting events play out on televisions scattered throughout the 11,000-square-foot restaurant.
Yard House will be open for lunch, dinner and late-night dining. Check it out at yardhouse.com.
