Sammy’s Food + Wine reopens its original La Jolla location this Friday, December 17. The restaurant has been closed since October 26, due to a water in the building. The restaurant, located at 702 Pearl Street in La Jolla (92037), has been closed for seven weeks.

“Although it’s never ideal to experience a closure, we are very happy to open before the holidays to help host celebrations for our La Jolla friends and neighbors,” said Sami Ladeki, owner and founder.

The restaurant had recently been remodeled and the new, reopened location will also boast the newly renovated aesthetics, including an updated patio.

Sammy’s has also recently expanded their menu with new items to include an emphasis on more sandwiches, pitas, tacos, and fresh fish entrees. They have created a new hummus section with four different flavors. Ladeki says this is his favorite menu he’s ever introduced. The variety of options and tastes make this truly a restaurant for every reason and season.

Currently, Sammy’s is offering holiday gift cards. From now until December 31, Sammy’s is offering a $10 Bonus certificate with every $50 gift card purchase.

Sammy’s La Jolla is also available for last-minute holiday celebrations in their private dining room.

With new renovations to La Mesa and Sammy’s other locations, Sammy’s also opened Sammy’s Restaurant & Bar at Seven Mile Casino (285 Bay Blvd in Chula Vista, 91910) this summer. The 24-hour location has many of Sammy’s favorites along with several Asian-inspired dishes and a breakfast menu with many picks from its sister restaurant, Toast Gastrobrunch in Carlsbad. Sammy’s Restaurant & Bar also has a full bar with beer and wine, as well as handcrafted cocktails and hosts a weekend brunch Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
