Construction is underway on the new Bushfire Kitchen, set to open in Beachside Del Mar by early October. The Mango Drive location will be the third for the eatery that focuses on fresh, affordable and organic meals — the first Bushfire opened in Temecula in 2012 and a sister restaurant opened in La Costa last year.
“We are excited to expand our presence to Beachside Del Mar,” said Clive Barwin, co-owner of Bushfire Kitchen. “Our food focuses on providing healthy, sustainable meals at a family-friendly price point, and Beachside Del Mar is an obvious choice for our third location.”
Barwin and his cousin-turned-business partner Brandon Barwin have lived in San Diego for almost a decade. The Barwins were born and raised in South Africa, and have spent time traveling around the world. The inspiration behind the Bushfire restaurants was the desire to serve healthy, comfort food at an affordable price, or as Clive puts it, “food made the same way our grandparents made it 50 years ago.”
The Beachside location will be the first Bushfire restaurant to serve breakfast in addition to lunch and dinner. The full menu can be viewed at bushfirekitchen.com.
