Local food and dining bites

FOX Sports Grill opens
The FOX Sports Grill, which is located directly across from Petco Park, is now open.

Executive chef Christian Hunter puts his twist on American cuisine classics – dishes such as filet mignon chili; prime rib french dip; chicken, shrimp and andouille jambalaya; banana bread pudding and four-layer chocolate cake smothered in chocolate cream cheese icing and served with cream Anglaise.

The cocktail menu overflows with Slam Dunk Martinis, Major League Margaritas and beer cocktails. Lunch specials – such as a fajita chicken wrap – are offered during the week from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

FOX Sports Grill is located on the ground level of the Hilton San Diego Bayfront at One Park Blvd.

Indoor and outdoor seating with views of the San Diego Bay are available.

The restaurant is open: 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Happy Hour: 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Reverse Happy Hour: 10 p.m. to midnight Monday through Friday.

Tickets to the 13th annual Meet the Chef’s of Del Mar, which takes place on April 26 at the Hilton Del Mar, have been lowered in light of the current economy.
