Fusion fantasy: Longtime Morro Bay restaurant Taco Temple plans to open a new location in San Luis Obispo in 2019! The California/Mexican-fusion fave is slated to serve tacos, burritos, and creative twists on spicy standards in the old Margie's Diner building off Highway 101 in SLO (for more information, go to tacotemple.com) ... On Nov. 10, head to Shell Beach for an evening of Mexican food and seaside views. Enjoy the sunset and grub on Chef Brad Wills' go-to Mary's Chicken tacos prepared with locally procured ingredients. Savor all the fixins and chill out to the sounds of dynamic duo the Van Gundy's, who will play an acoustic set to round out the groovy ambiance. The event is hosted by Hearth and kicks off from 4 to 6 p.m. at 325 Cuyama Ave. in Shell Beach ... The owners of Santa Margarita's steak mecca The Range are nearly ready to offer a lunch and brunch menu at their new beer and wine bar, Rosalina. Yay! Jeff and Lindsay Jackson, who have served up dinners at The Range for more than a decade, bought the former Santa Margarita Tavern (located just across El Camino Real from their restaurant) about a year and a half ago with the desire to honor Jeff Jackson's mother, Rosalina, who hails from Jalisco, Mexico.
