Tikul Coastal Mexican opens on Prospect Street

Tikul Coastal Mexican celebrated its opening at 1250 Prospect St. on July 1 with a party to show off its upscale coastal cuisine, signature drinks and live music.

The 3,500-square-foot restaurant has an outdoor patio, lunch and dinner menus, and the authentic ambiance of the Mexican Riviera. Alberto Perez, who co-owns Tikul alongside wife, Renee, said in a press release that they “brought our children to vacation in La Jolla for many years, and when we learned that this space was available, we knew it was an opportune time.”
