StreetCar Merchants Of Fried Chicken & Suckerfree Team To Bring New Concept ShotCaller To San Diego

September 18, 2019

The team behind North Park's StreetCar Merchants Of Fried Chicken and Suckerfree Southern Plates & Bar in San Diego's Gaslamp is opening a new concept called ShotCaller.

Founded by Ron Suel and RaVae Smith, Streetcar launched in North Park in 2014 and opened a La Jolla location in December 2016 that closed in less than a year. In early 2018, Suel and Smith launched Suckerfree Southern Plates & Bar in the Gaslamp Quarter. Last week, the duo took over the quaint space previously occupied by Wingmii in the Lincoln Park area of San Diego and will open a new restaurant called Shotcaller.

"In all honesty, we don’t know what it is yet," explained Ron Suel. "We don’t have a finalized menu but the name is Shotcaller. We are still in R&D and design." 

Like StreetCar and Suckerfree, Shotcaller will offer a Southern-inspired menu but with more fusion than the other spots. There will be no liquor license, being the space is rather small and located within a retail plaza. Shotcaller aims to open by year's end at 220 Euclid Avenue, Suite 180, in San Diego's Lincoln Park neighborhood.
