We all too frequently see announcements of coming restaurants that never come to fruition (Roosterfish for example), but in the interest of sharing information, it's better to reveal than conceal. The latest unconfirmed rumor sourced from social media is that the former site of Bella Roma Pizza and Restaurant, located at 5737 La Jolla Blvd. in Bird Rock/La Jolla, will soon be the location of Wheat & Water, which describes itself on its Facebook Page as "Stylishly urban design meets seaside neighborhood vibe...Wood-fired pizza + charcuterie + #CraftBeer." We also see on its Instagram that it is planning quite the elaborate sour beer collection.
Continuing to speculate, it appears that Wheat & Water may be from the same owners as Bella, but with a redesign by The Craft Coterie, a newly opened hospitality firm specializing in restaurant and bar start up and operations. After a little over a year in business, Bella Roma closed in July, and construction is already underway at the nearly 3,500 square foot space. We also believe that Wheat & Water is acquiring its liquor license from the soon-to-shutter Kamikaze 7 Sushi Joint in downtown SD.
