Herringbone restaurant wants to add sidewalk service
BY SHELLI DEROBERTIS
The La Jolla Development Permit Review Committee unanimously approved Herringbone restaurant’s plans for an outside dining area at its Aug. 14 meeting.
The $2.5 million eatery from restaurateurs Brian Malarkey and James Brennan opened at 7837 Herschel Ave. in May. The scope of work involves a permit for a proposed sidewalk café that projects nearly seven feet from the front of the building, along 22 feet, for a total of 151 square feet.
“The plan is to stay true to the original design of the building,” said architect Claude-Anthony Marengo.
The building was renovated from a 20-year vacancy to become the upscale seafood restaurant that now features Bravo TV’s Top Chef graduate, Amanda Baumgarten.
Marengo said a three-foot-tall wrought-iron fence will enclose the outdoor eating area and mimic the design on the windows that face Herschel Avenue.
The sidewalk café will seat 16 guests, and utilize the existing outdoor tiles that pave the walkway.
The project now must go before the La Jolla Community Planning Association, which meets at 6 p.m. the first Thursday of the month at the Rec Center, 615 Prospect St. The next meeting is Sept. 6.
