Here's the definitive scoop on Mister Tiki in downtown San Diego straight from the restaurant manager and the Cohns...

Opening Day: Friday, June 9, 2004. The manager requested that we give him a week to work the bugs out of the system before bringing down a group of tiki enthusiasts. However, he is very excited that this group is interested!

Drinks: They are offering 23+ tropical drinks including 4 kinds of mai tais and most other classic standards. They have researched their mixology and will have a mix of traditional and updated drinks on the menu. Signature drink will be the "Mondo Martiki for 4".

Tiki Mugs: All mixed drinks will be served in appropriate containers including several styles of mugs and volcano bowls.

Music: They will be playing Exotica throughout the dinner hours and transition into Lounge later in the evening.

Decor: The manager could hardly contain himself when describing how cool Bosko's work looked after being installed in the restaurant. Can't wait to see it!

Food: Asian-fusion cuisine, sushi bar, poki bar, lots of pupu style dishes.

Input: I was told that after the restaurant opens, they will be actively seeking our input to help make the place as good as it can be. Their goal is to keep it as authentically tiki as possible without scaring away the regular crowd. They are aware of what happened to Taboo Cove and want to avoid those mistakes at all cost.

This place really seems like they are on the right track to me! The manager took my name and number and promised to call me as soon as they are able to take reservations. So, I would be happy to coordinate a TC outing if there is an interest. My best suggestion for a date would be Saturday, June 12th. What do you think?

Also, for further information please refer to the previous thread related to Mister Tiki

OK, I just received this from Beth @ Cohn Restaurants Group:

"Hi Freddie!

Thanks for all of your interest. It is nice to see that we have such a following before the doors even open! You can't believe all that you hear though, we can hope that we will be open around the 6th of June, but it
isn't looking like we'll be ready by then. I really wish that I could give you more information, but there really isn't too much that we are sure about just yet. We are leery to send out any sort of newsletter regarding Mister Tiki, until we know for sure (we wouldn't want to mislead anyone!) As for "restaurants that you frequent" choices, Mister Tiki Mai Tai Lounge will be added very shortly. An announcement will be sent out to everyone though, so it isn't critical that you update your preferences right away. I can't wait to see you there when we do open!

Take Care,

Beth Hoggard
Office Manager
Cohn Restaurant Group"




Modmana, if your right, i would be interested in making the trip down there.


Tbird.

Modmana, you mean June 12th? Wednesday the 9th is my Gran'daughter's 1st birthday, but I don't think that anything's wrong with Saturday. If we have a Babysitter.

The missus and I are up for it.
We might be bringing an extra friend (Hans, my bandmate).

P.S. Our big couch is quite comfy to sleep on, if anyone needs a free place to crash.
