Popular San Diego restaurant closing for renovations

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - One of San Diego's most popular restaurants closed Monday for about six weeks of renovations, while another is shutting down following Tuesday's New Year's Eve celebration.

Phil's BBQ on Sports Arena Boulevard closed Monday and is scheduled to reopen Feb. 11, according to the restaurant's website. The remodeling work will include a new kitchen, more beer taps and water and energy efficiency improvements.

In the meantime, Phil's fans can get their fill of ribs, barbecue chicken and spicy sauce at locations in San Marcos, near West San Marcos Boulevard and state Route 78, or Santee, along Cuyamaca Street across from The Home Depot.

Croce's Restaurant & Jazz Bar, one of the catalysts for the development of the Gaslamp Quarter, will end a 30-year run at its Fifth Avenue location after its annual New Year's Eve celebration Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

Ingrid Croce, the establishment's owner and the widow of the singer-songwriter Jim Croce, was unable to resolve a dispute with the building's owner over noise and vibrations from a next-door nightclub.

Croce and her husband are opening a 4,000-square-foot, 200-seat location called Croce's Park West -- on Jan. 19 on Fifth Avenue in Banker's Hill.
