Blue Bridge Hospitality Takes Over Islander Restaurant In Coronado For Rumored Noodle Concept

May 23, 2017

Blue Bridge Hospitality - owners of Leroy's Kitchen, Stake Chophouse, Liberty Public Market and many more local concepts - is in the process of taking over Islander seafood restaurant on Orange Avenue in Coronado for a rumored ramen eatery to be installed after the restaurant closes this summer.

Owned by Coronado native David Spatafore, Blue Bridge Hospitality got its start in 1998 with MooTime Creamery and has experienced substantial growth over the past nearly two decades with many distinct family-friendly concepts. Most recently venturing into the city market spectrum with the launch of Liberty Public Market in 2016, the hospitality group currently owns and operates seven concepts in Coronado.

Blue Bridge will take over the space at 1166 Orange Avenue currently occupied by Islander restaurant, which was started in October 2014 by San Diego native Scott Quan. Islander will close at the end of July, and rumor has it that Spatafore aims to capitalize on the ramen trend sweeping San Diego and turn the business into a Japanese noodle-centric concept tentatively called Nado Noodles, anticipated to debut as early as Fall 2017. We reached out to Mr. Spatafore for more information but he refused to comment on the project at this time.
