Communion Rooftop Restaurant and Bar and Paradis Sidewalk Cafe coming to The Sasan in Mission Hills

Two new restaurant spaces are planned to open by the end of 2024

The Mission Hills BID is excited to learn of two new restaurants coming to The Sasan in Mission Hills!

Communion will be opening on the rooftop, boasting incredible views of San Diego and Paradis will be opening on the ground floor space, which includes an outdoor courtyard. Both restaurants will be run by Jacquee Renna Downing, a San Diego native. She and her late husband previously owned Pacific Del Mar in  Del Mar, CA. Currently Downing runs La Quinta Cliffhouse in La Quinta, CA and Pacifica Seafood in Palm Desert, CA.

From Eater San Diego:

Communion will offer dinner and eventually brunch on the Sasan’s rooftop. With indoor and outdoor seating for over 100 guests, the restaurant’s menu of shared plates will gather inspiration from coastal cuisines around the globe. Downing tells Eater there will be an emphasis on seafood while including plenty of vegan and gluten-free options. There will be a full cocktail program, as well as mocktails; Downing says they’re currently experimenting with making their own alcohol-free spirits.

Slated to open by the end of the year, Paradis will be an all-day sidewalk cafe with an outdoor courtyard that will serve coffee, tea, and pastries during the daytime before transitioning to an evening menu of martinis and amari paired with tapas and small bites. Calling the design “dreamy and romantic”, Downing says the restaurant will evoke the vintage vibes of a Parisian cafe.

The Sasan is a 54 unit residential building located at 901-915 W. Washington Street, San Diego, CA 92103 on the corner of Goldfinch Street. The rooftop area is approximately 2,218 square feet including an approximate 752 square feet of covered patio space. The total ground floor commercial space is approximately 1,874 square feet.

Designed and developed by Nakhshab Development & Design, The Sasan is named after the father of brothers and business partners, Soheil and Nima Nakhshab

When reached for comment by the Mission Hills BID, Soheil Nakhshab, Founder and Principal of Nakhshab Development & Design, said, “[…] we are very excited to welcome [Downing’s] group into Mission Hills, it’s not often we get to meet other people that grew up in San Diego.  Looking forward to welcoming them into our neighborhood.

The Mission Hills BID enthusiastically echoes those sentiments and is excited to welcome these two new businesses into our vibrant community!
