San Diego, CA, October 04, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The latest business to announce plans to open at Mercado del Barrio is Asia Wok, the delicious Chinese and Japanese cuisine in a fast-casual setting. The restaurant brings its fresh, vibrant flavors to the mixed-use project located at the eastern edge of downtown San Diego just under the Coronado Bridge.
Asia Wok is scheduled to open in March 2014 in a 1,887 SF space along Cesar Chavez Boulevard at the Barrio Logan Neighborhood Center, said Kevin McCook, vice president of development for Shea Properties, retail developer at Mercado del Barrio.
“It’s great to see new restaurants beginning to open at Mercado del Barrio. We are excited to see the food sector expanding at the center, and bringing the neighborhood a variety of quality dining options,” McCook said.
Already open at Mercado del Barrio is a 36,000-square-foot Northgate Market, one of the nation’s leading Hispanic markets selling day-to-day grocery items and prepared foods. Along with Northgate Market, other tenants already open include Tocumbo Ice Cream, Fathom CrossFit, T-Mobile and Hispanic Professional Services. Little Caesar’s Pizza and National Laundry and Dry Cleaning have also been announced and will open in the coming months.
Mercado del Barrio is located just under the Coronado Bay Bridge and adjacent to the historic Chicano Park. It is one block south of Interstate 5 and one block north of the Barrio Logan trolley stop. Construction is also underway just across the street for a future community college that will accommodate 4,000 students and staff.
