Brian’s 24 – Gaslamp
Brian’s 24 - Gaslamp
One of Gaslamp’s most beloved restaurants and bars is now under new ownership! Brian’s 24 is known as the restaurant that never sleeps, staying open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Brian ran the restaurant alongside his family since 2008 and after 10 amazing years in business, the family decided to take a well-deserved break from the restaurant industry. Luckily, the new owner plans to keep the integrity and charm of Brian’s 24 intact! Mike Spilky represented the Buyer and Seller in this transaction.
Cowboy Chicken – 4S Ranch
Cowboy Chicken – 4S Ranch
Cowboy Chicken has officially opened their first San Diego location in Regency Centers’ 4S Commons Town Center! They’ve been cooking wood fire rotisserie chicken since 1981 and many are jumping for joy as they learn that this Texas-based brand is set to continue to expand throughout our neighborhoods. With this location under our belts, we continue the search for additional prime sites for this growing fast-casual concept. Mike Spilky represented the tenant in this transaction.

Tanuki – Kensington
Tanuki – Kensington
Congrats to our friends over at Tanuki for opening the doors to their first restaurant, where the Kensington community is welcoming them with open arms! This all-star concept comes from the former chef of San Diego’s Nobu – a coffee bar by day and sake bar by night. Their menu features over 100 selections of sake, syphon coffee made table side, a variety of sushi options made by the master chef or the option of “make your own hand roll”, and so much more. Mike Spilky represented the tenant in this transaction.
