Anthony’s 52-year-lease on the signature location expires on Jan. 31, 2017. The port staff is recommending the board choose between proposals from Sunroad Enterprises and The Brigantine at a meeting next Tuesday.

“This is a very unique, over-water site at the most prominent location on our waterfront,”she added. “Our region deserves a world-class restaurant anchor as part of an unforgettable San Diego Bay experience.”

Brigantine’s plan includes Brigantine on the Bay, Miguel’s Cocina, Ketch Grill & Taps and Portside Gelato & Coffee.
