    So cool - so much closer to my workplace.

    Well, as of now. I guess by February that won't be the case.

      Mine too and they'll be a welcome addition. Hopefully they won't be too far down Miramar to be inconvenient

        The map indicates that it is a few blocks east or so from the Pyramid.

          East is good :-)

          The closer to the I-15 end the better

            That's not really east, though. In fact, that is often where the traffic jam starts on Miramar around 4:00 in the afternoon. That location is pretty much smack dab in the middle of Miramar, which is probably why it will be their catering center.

            Works out perfect for me, though. I can grab one of those yummy sandwiches and head down to Alesmith's tasting room, which opens at noon each day. And maybe I can grab an ice cream pint somewhere nearby and do a KraftBeerFloat for dessert.

                It's actually further West than I would like it to be :-(

                It is, however, not terribly difficult to get there from my office using side streets

                      Truth is, that puts its location smack between Marshall's Hardware and Harbor Freight Tools, so I may just wander on in next time I'm in the Temecula/Riverside/Las Vegas area.

                    Please, please open a restaurant in the Bay Park area.

                    If not that, could you please provide shuttle service to Miramar Rd.?

                    That area is dizzying, and parking is a, well... problem.

                    But not down here!

                    See you on Morena?

                        Yes - I find that parking remark incredibly confusing. The only place I know parking can get tight is in the Little India area, and even then you have tons of street parking a block or two away.

                        What are you talking about, DoctorChow?

                          Getting into and out of the parking lots is a problem, for me anyway, since all of the shopping centers blend together and there seem to be curb cuts everywhere. Unless you're familiar with the area you can end up going in and out of the centers more than once when attempting to locate a particular business. Getting out of the lots can be exciting, too, when there's traffic. All of the above is true on Convoy also, I think, but it's worse on Miramar. I didn't mean that the parking lots themselves are crowded. Just that the whole area is, as I put it "dizzying". Maybe it's just me. I don't get up to Miramar Rd. very often, and when I do it's to go to SD Wine -- and I know where that is and where to turn in, and I go on weekends when there's no traffic.

                          Yeah, re-reading the way I wrote it, I can see how my remark was easily misconstrued. Maybe I should have said "Guide Service" instead of "Shuttle Service". Whatever. It was meant to be a light post. It failed.

                            Great second attempt, though - I know exactly what you mean now. And on top of that, it's pretty dangerous with all the left turns in and out of those places. I don't think a week goes by where there isn't at least one serious accident on that road.

                            Light or not, you made a good point, just not the point I thought you were making at first. :)

                      Good for you, not good for me....per Anthony and Tony who work there, that means they will no longer be operating out of the Sushi on a Roll location in Barrio Logan which is but a 5 minute drive from my downtown residence. I have become addicted to their Neptune sandwich and wil regret the day they stop serving in Barrio Logan in February.

                        Miramar location will be great and don't understand DC comment about the parking and its what, 5 exits up the I-5 from Squaremont..

                        They must be Cardiff by the Sea locals...Kraken and the Hydra are 2 names of sandwiches..

                        Kraken is across from the Chart House and one of the best dive bars in the free world and the beloved Hydra that used to be where Charlie's is at..burned down in the 80's...one of the best places oceanfront with a kick ass salad bar..RIP Hydra

                              You are baiting me, aren't you? You'd never want to go that way - too many stop lights along LJVD between 5 and 805 for you to get that sports car up to speed. Better to go 805, or 5 to 52 to 805, or Regents to 52 to 805, or Genesee to 52 to 805, etc.

                              There's a brand spanking new Ashley furniture store not too far from there, too - they moved from the old Pyramid space. Maybe that's a draw for the "ladies" and easy-chair buying dudes. :)

                                      So I tried SuperNatural Sandwiches on Miramar Rd. today for lunch.

                                      Like that there is lots of parking...hate that I have to drive on Miramar Rd. That street has the lllloooonnnnggggeeesssstttt stoplights in the world.

                                      I ordered the Harpy...shrimp along with bacon and goat cheese stuffed in a lightly toasted, top-loading, brioche bread/bun thingy and finished with balsamic sauce.

                                      There were 5 shrimp (26/30s? they looked too small to be 21/25s) that were flavorful and well cooked. The bacon pieces were plentiful but the goat cheese was kind of a wad in the middle of the sandwich like someone had just taken a disher of it and plopped it into the center of the sandwich. There were a few pieces of diced tomato, along with a miniscule leaf of lettuce buried under the shrimp and cheese. The balsamic was a great topping for this sandwich.

                                      The flavor combination works very well, but...(you knew this was coming, didn't you <gg>), after the third bite the sandwich totally fell apart leaving me with a big ol' hunk o' brioche and 4 lonesome looking small shrimp. When the sandwich basically disintegrates when you've just begun eating it, the enjoyment goes down proportionately.

                                      In spite of having to eat the sandwich as individual components - or perhaps because of that - at $10+ (including tax) the value for the price may not be there for me. Yes, I know they are using quality products from good and respected vendors, but I'm not sure what I got equaled what I paid for it.

                                      I'll certainly try them again because I think their flavor combinations are interesting. I just hope my next sandwich holds together a little better than this one did :-)

                                          Have them cut your sandwich in half before they give it to you.
                                          If my kids can eat their half sandwiches there without them falling apart, I'm sure you can. ;-)

                                              An added bonus of getting the sandwiches cut is they use long wood toothpicks to hold the halves together. The toothpicks make nice stabbing skewers to pick up any morsels that might fall back into the paper tray.*

                                              Maybe it's because we had the kids with us both times, but they cut the sandwiches without us asking and we had no problems. But I can see how a whole one of those sandwiches could suddenly lose all structural integrity. There's a reason (besides pigeons) that they don't make bridge spans out of lightly toasted, buttered brioche.

                                              *Protip: put the fallen morsels onto a shrimp chip.

                                                I had a Kraken fall apart on me. I do think it is the bread they use. I'll try cutting in half first next time.
