Meze Team To Bring Dough Nations Pizzeria To Barrio Logan

February 1, 2019

GBOD Hospitality Group - the team behind such concepts as Mezé Greek Fusion, El Chingon Bad Ass Mexican, Havana 1920, and Monkey King - are in the process of opening Dough Nations, a pizzeria and craft beer bar debuting later this month in San Diego's Barrio Logan community.

Originally to be named "Barrio Bros" (that moniker was allegedly shot down by the city as being likely to be confused as gang-affiliated due to the "Bros" aspect), Dough Nations wil be a 2,500 square foot, East Coast style pizzeria opening soon in Mercado Del Barrio. In addition to thin crust pizzas, the restaurant will serve a menu of classic Americanized-Italian appetizers, wings, salads, sandwiches, and pastas, as well as craft beer, wine selections and a full bar with cocktails. Once up and running, the eatery will launch a menu of pizzas from around the world, implementing new flavors and toppings based on popular dishes from around the globe. The company will also give donations (get it, Dough Nations) based on sales to local charities.

GBOD Hospitality Group was founded in 2012 by brothers Raymond and Patrick Davoudi in San Diego with the opening of Mezé Greek Fusion in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. Two new partners, Joe Santos and Aleko Achtipes, joined GBOD in 2014 with the aim to build an eclectic area of hospitality brands around America's Finest City. Building on the success of Mezé, GBOD took over operations of underground speakeasy Prohibition in February 2017, followed by the opening El Chingon Bad Ass Mexican in May 2017. GBOD opened Mezé at Liberty Station in June 2017, Havana 1920 in October 2017, and the company added Monkey King to its portfolio in June 2018. GBOD is also rumored to be working on building a rooftop bar as part of a downtown high-rise hotel currently under construction.
