Health-Focused Our Green Affair Restaurant Announces Impending Closure Of Original Location In San Diego's Pacific Beach

April 10, 2024

Fresh off the opening of a new branch in Solana Beach, health-focused Our Green Affair restaurant has announced the impending closure of its original location in San Diego's Pacific Beach.

A family-run team consisting of a father and his daughters, David, Jacqueline and Jeanette Gaistman opened the first location of Our Green Affair at 980 Garnet Avenue in San Diego's Pacific Beach in March 2020. The "sexy salad bar" had roots in Mexico City where David first opened frozen yogurt spots called Nuny’s Yogurt that had 14 stores throughout the country. At the yogurt shops, Jacqueline learned from the bottom up the process of hospitality and how to get a business up and running. 

"The idea behind Our Green Affair was planted with a diagnosis," explained owner Jacqueline Gaistman. "Growing up, my family had always been major foodies. In fact, our parents taught my sisters and I to always try everything and anything. That staple in who we were became a little more complicated when my little sister was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, an inflammatory bowel disease which causes severe abdominal pain and heavily regulates your food options. She was forced to change her eating habits entirely. It became clear that we were going through this together, and as a family we had to eat clean. But we weren’t willing to give up something that defined us: our love of food. With a change in lifestyle without compromising the taste in food came a realization: we wanted to share with the world that healthy food can be desirable."
In 2022, the second location of Our Green Affair opened in the 1,700 square-foot space that last housed a Freshii in San Diego's Hillcrest neighborhood. The third location of the build-your-own salad and wrap concept opened just last week within Lomas Santa Fe Plaza in San Diego's North County community of Solana Beach. With their newest location up and running, the Our Green Affair family has made the difficult decision to shutter their Pacific Beach branch very soon. The PB outpost will continue to operate during normal advertised hours until their impending closure at some point this month.

Our Green Affair offers a design inspired by the inviting colors of Tulum complimented with neon lighting and repurposed materials. Then menu will be based around fresh seasonal produce with offerings of soups, salads, bowls, wraps, loaded potatoes, and homemade beverages, as well as a separate seasonal menu that will frequently change.
