Buzz and a pal scoped out the new Pearl Hotel and its restaurant on Rosecrans in Point Loma. Quite the urban, slightly retro chic place…tiny but fun. The bar and restaurant blend into one and face the pool…around which are the 23 guest rooms. The restaurant/lounge will seat about 35–a small venue, but with an interesting wine list and food at reasonable prices, look for it to be a good place to meet for breakfast or lunch…dinner if you want more of a scene. There’s some fun seating just off the main lobby. 1410 Rosecrans, 619-226-6100.
