Launching a chain is a bold move, but it does allow you to stay totally out of the spiked-bat guy's range at the other end of the alley. Launching a chain that'll hit you over the head -- with delicious flatbreads! -- Stone Flats
Now open, Scripps Ranch's SF's the first (#2 coming soon to Point Loma!) of a planned "nationwide chain of company-owned stores that support the local communities" ...specifically by serving them flatbreads; the inaugural grubspot's gussied with up-cycled Wyoming snow-fence paneling, and chairs made from 111 recycled Coke bottles each, or approximately 1.7% of the contraband from the SDSU raid. The 'breads are customizable via locally sourced meats/produce, with build-your-own options like white or whole wheat dough, marinara/white bean/garlic olive oil for sauces, cheeses from mozz to goat, standard veggies, and meats from steak to bacon, all fired up and "ready to serve in 90 seconds", by the end of which, Nicholas Boothman will have already won over the staff's trust, and be eating your order. They've also got signature pre-set affairs like a ranch-topped BLT and a goat cheese/scallions/basil Chicken joint, as well as soups like a Tomato Basil and rice-filled Pulled Chicken, and for dessert: the vanilla ice cream-topped "Cinna-flat", which's apparently what happens when "cinnamon toast hooks up with apple pie", meaning that little chef better be on the lookout for a jealously enraged Jason Biggs
To keep you hydrated they've got a selection of vinos, and six brews (including a pale and IPA from Stone) in the bottle, which should keep everyone content, unless someone else shows up with a chain!
