Good news for the Barrio Logan building that formerly housed The Guild. The planning and architectural firm of M.W. Steele Group bought the building and will occupy much of it, including the upstairs mezzanine. Blueprint Cafe and a catering company (owned by a former New York chef) will use the remaining space. The 40 seat cafe will serve lunch with homemade/handmade American seasonal dishes and afternoon light fare. Expect to see it open mid July. As details are not final, we can’t divulge more names just yet. Stay tuned.
Diane Powers will open Casa Bandini in the Forum, likely sometime in July.
And we hope it isn’t true that a small Hillcrest eatery, open barely a year and a half, could be closing soon.
