Paradise Point, the resort in the middle of Mission Bay just opened a new pizza restaurant and is calling it Caveman Pizza Company. Says chef James Ausem, the pizza place is located in a space that was a cold war bunker in the 1950s when the hotel was under construction. Chef adds the new restaurant is kid friendly as youngsters can build their own pies by choosing from more than 15 different toppings. Speaking of kids how many of us left remember Paradise Point when it was called Vacation Village? The beach along the island was a big teen favorite for firing up the fire ring and hanging out for hours. Guess what: it still is.
