The Red Door is an eatery that, through its evolution and numerous twists and turns at the back of the house, has remained true in every sense to its core values, making it a constant in Mission Hills. Recent major developments are both significant and not the least bit surprising — especially a new CSR program. The Red Door is now the first Community-Supported Restaurant in San Diego, offering members the chance to pay up-front dues for benefits that include members-only dinners, tours of the restaurant’s local farmland, wine-release parties, culinary technique classes, and cocktail tastings. The latter will be conducted by Executive Chef Miguel Valdez, who will create a menu of liquid assets for the new farm-to-glass cocktail concept going in next door at Bar by Red Door. It’s all about tipples based around ultra-local ingredients and liqueurs. Look for fresh pears and limes to lend a local twist to a Tru vanilla vodka-based cocktail, while an “agua fresca” made with Greenbar IXÁ organic tequila is given botanical depth care of lemongrass syrup and fresh blackberries. 619.295.6000, thereddoorsd.com   Brandon Hernández
