Waypoint Public To Shutter Del Sur Location After Little Over One Year In Business

May 15, 2018

The Waypoint Public location at Del Sur Town Center in San Diego's 4S Ranch area, which was opened by local hospitality firm ELE Collective in Spring 2017, will close for business this week. The original North Park outpost will remain in operation.

Opened in the new Del Sur Town Center by John Pani's ELE Collective (Hotel Vyvant in Little Italy, Park & Rec in University Heights) in April 2017, Waypoint Public occupied a 3,450 square-foot space within the retail complex. The restaurant's kitchen was originally helmed by former Top Chef contestant Rich Sweeney, but he left Waypoint's employ in March 2018 and has since been signed to the role of Executive Chef at Fox Restaurant Concepts incoming North Italia restaurant in Fashion Valley Mall. There is no word as to the reason for the impending closure, but the restaurant is expected to shutter after close of business this Friday, May 18. We reached out to owner John Pani but he refused to comment for this story.

The original Waypoint Public location moved into the space that last housed The Linkery and opened in 2013 as a modern bistro with a focus on local craft beer. The flagship branch will remain in business 3794 30th Street in North Park and continue to operate under normal hours. For more information, visit waypointpublic.com.
