The Shop Pizza + Wine To Replace Mr. Moto Pizza House In San Diego's Ocean Beach

April 3, 2023

Replacing Mr. Moto Pizza House in San Diego's Ocean Beach neighborhood is The Shop Pizza + Wine, a restaurant concept specializing in West Coast deep dish pizza. 

In fall 2020, Brett Herring moved from San Francisco to San Diego to open The Shop: Pizza + Cocktails in Rancho Bernardo. Herring had previously honed his craft working at San Francisco's popular deep dish pizza concept Little Star Pizza. 

Brett Herring is now in the process of taking over the 1,221 square-foot space that last housed Mr. Moto Pizza Houses's Ocean Beach location. Like the original The Shop, expect a menu centered around cornmeal-crusted deep dish pizza, as well as traditional, thin-crust styles, salads, pasta, sandwiches, and more. The space will have a small dining area with mezzanine seating and an outdoor patio. There will also be a selection of beer and a curated wine list, composed of selections from small wineries, all consciously produced (organic, natural, biodynamic, or sustainable), available by the glass, flight or bottle.

The Shop: Pizza + Wine is anticipated to open by this summer at 1929 Cable Street in San Diego's Ocean Beach. For more information, visit and check out the draft menu below.
