Five Hot Gastro Pubs in San Diego

If you’re headed to sunny San Diego anytime soon, be sure to bring your appetite. This So Cal city has become quite the foodie destination. There is a crop of relatively new gastro pubs that have sprung up around the city. If you’re not familiar with the term, a gastro pub (a British creation) is a bar that serves hearty gourmet fare and often features international beer or microbrews, difficult to find wines, and craft cocktails. Here are five San Diego gastro pubs you shouldn’t miss.

 

 

Proper Gastro Pub

Located in San Diego’s East Village, Proper offers a large selection of beer and wine by the glass, as well as specialty cocktails. Their menu features international dishes such as curry chips (fries), steamed edamame, fish tacos and chipotle calamari.

 

Jayne’s Gastro Pub

San Diego’s first gastro pub, Jayne’s is located in the University Heights neighborhood. Inspired by British cuisine, Jayne’s menu is full of delicious, hearty fare. The Jayne Burger (grilled beef with melted aged cheddar cheese, garlic aioli, lettuce, and house sweet pickled onions on a soft sesame bun) is quite popular. Jayne’s features a large selection of international wines and bottled craft beers, as well as a great selection of craft cocktails.

 

Urge American Gastro Pub

Located in Rancho Bernardo, Urge prides itself on being an American reinterpretation of the traditional English pub (a great place for sports fans). Urge serves farm-to-table pub foods and boasts an extensive beer list.

 

Knotty Barrel Gastro Pub

Located in San Diego’s East Village, Knotty Barrel specializes in locally-sourced food and features a selection of over 100 local, domestic and imported beers from around the world, including over twenty craft beers on tap. Knotty Barrel offers one of the best local beer selections in San Diego.

 

The Hopping Pig Gastro Pub

Located in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, The Hopping Pig serves affordable, tasty gastro fare and features 32 Draft Beers available on a rotating schedule include Delerium, Stone, Ballast Point, Green Flash, Chimay, Lost Abbey, Manzanita, SpeakEasy, AleSmith and more.

 

Cheers!
