Three specialty retailers added to Del Mar Highlands Town Center Three specialty retail stores have been added to the Del Mar Highlands Town Center – Leaf & Kettle, baker & olive and Sunglass Cabana. The stores join a variety of contemporary dining, shopping and entertainment options attracted to the popular shopping center following its recent $20 million renovation. “Leaf & Kettle, baker & olive and Sunglass Cabana are a welcome addition to what is becoming an incredible diversity of dining, shopping and entertainment options at the Del Mar Highlands Town Center,” said Elizabeth Schreiber, vice president and general manager of the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. “The re-imagining of the shopping center has proven a tremendous success and asset to the community.” A gourmet foods store specializing in fresh olive oils and balsamic vinegars, baker & olive, is expanding from its current location in Encinitas to a second store at the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. The shop is also known for its selection of specialty food items including honey, jams, spices, rubs, and sweet treats and its expertise in all things gourmet. Sunglass Cabana is a New York-based retailer of highend, fashion and prescription sunglasses. The store also offers a variety of sun protection eyewear accessories. Among the brands carried by the Sunglass Cabana are Gucci, Christian Dior, Oakley and Tom Ford. Leaf & Kettle will offer its customers a fascinating selection of premium loose teas and teaware from around the world. The shop combines 5,000 years of authentic tea traditions with modern innovations in an accessible, service-oriented environment.

Bazaar del Mundo restaurant coming to Del Mar Highlands in former Red Robin location The lease is signed and planning is underway for a new restaurant for Mexican cuisine aficionados and families at Del Mar Highlands Town Center from Diane Powers’ Bazaar del Mundo Restaurant Group. The new restaurant will take the former Red Robin space and is expected to open in spring 2013. In keeping with its sister restaurants, Casa de Pico in La Mesa, Casa Guadalajara in Old Town and Casa de Bandini in Carlsbad, the new family-friendly entity will serve authentic, regional Mexican cuisine. “We work hard to cultivate tenants who have San Diego origins,” said Elizabeth Schreiber, vice president and general manager for Donahue Schriber, owner and operator of Del Mar Highlands Town Center. “We’re thrilled to welcome Diane Powers’ latest venture to our line-up of top restaurants, as she continues her history of creating beautiful restaurants and delicious Mexican cuisine for families all over San Diego County.” The building will undergo a complete renovation and expansion, and reflect Powers’ sense of design that uniquely captures the spirit of Mexico. The restaurant’s expansion will include outdoor dining with her signature colorful umbrellas, authentic Talavera tiled fountains and specimen plants. Dining rooms will be filled with fine Mexican folk art, comfortable furniture, hand-painted stucco walls and chairs upholstered in colorful handwoven Zapotec fabrics from Oaxaca, Mexico. Jewel-like glass and brass lanterns will cascade from the ceiling. The menu, now in design, will showcase entrees made with a variety of fresh sauces, seafood dishes, healthy choice options, vegetarian and gluten-free items, as well as a children’s menu. Also featured will be the same frosty, giant margaritas that have led to the popularity of Powers’ restaurants. Casa Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant is at the entrance to Old Town on the corner of Taylor and Juan Streets. Casa de Pico is located at 5500 Grossmont Center Drive, La Mesa, (619)463-3267. Casa de Bandini is located at 1901 Calle Barcelona, Carlsbad, (760) 634-3443. For more information call (619)296-3161 or visit
