August 7, 2018

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMMES Realty Services of California LLC has added a popular eatery at 701B, providing a unique perk to tenants and visitors alike.

The new Nomad Café is a partnership between Legal Restaurants and neighborhood favorite Nomad Donuts, and features eclectic offerings, such as woodfired bagels and other goodies. All the recipes for the glazes, toppings and fillings are crafted by a chef, while hand rolled dough is made fresh every day.

Legal Restaurants is a full-service local hospitality development group led by executive chefs Antonio Friscia and Fern Tran. The group has played a key role in launching Bao Beach, Fireside by the Patio, and Harvest by the Patio among other San Diego eateries. The firm’s core sectors of expertise include fast-casual, casual fine dining, and entertainment venues developed for Class A Office buildings and retail centers.

“We partner with best-in-class real estate owners to develop incredible amenities for their buildings,” said Legal Restaurants’ partner and COO Nick Sanderson. “We believe so much in the downtown area to try this business (Nomad Café). We like to make destinations out of our office buildings, and EMMES is helping us do that through their commitment to attracting creative tenants at 701B. EMMES is taking a chance on having this beautiful café. They are an awesome landlord and have created a cool brand inside the lobby, which is attractive to tenants.”

Nomad Café is part of the recently renovated 701B Lobby, which was re-imagined and designed for an “urban oasis” feel.

“As our tenant base at 701B grows, we want to provide the best experiences for them, and Nomad Café is a perfect example of that,” said Mark Kuske, Vice President-Asset Manager, EMMES Realty Services of California LLC. “Attracting a world-class firm like Legal Restaurants and a popular brand like Nomad is a testament to our dedication to providing first-class hospitality services to our tenants and downtown visitors.”
