The kitchen at Common Theory Public House revolves around the theory of simplicity, offering a menu of ingredient-driven California dishes that focus on enhancing elements’ natural flavors using contemporary cooking sensibilities of Korean, Chinese, Mexican, and American cuisines. Hearty bar food creations include bacon-wrapped garlic corn dogs, hanger steak & IPA chimichurri, and blackened salmon steak with black beans, quinoa, corn, red bell peppers, poblano peppers, and Cajun sauce. The rotating draft list of 30-34 beers generally encompasses varieties from San Diego and up and down the coast of California.
Settled down in a brick and mortar, Wow Wow Waffle is dishing up what was previously only attainable at the farmers market -- you can get your hands on a delicious Nutella and banana Liege waffle whenever you want.
Get yourself some waffles the non-traditional way at Bruxie with creations involving buttermilk fried chicken, angus beef patties, and hot pastrami.
The empire has expanded to include a site adjacent to Petco Park, with 16 Stone brews on tap plus tasters, flights, pints, bottles, and growlers. Sip and and savor all your Stone Brewing favorites before, during, and after games, or just head here for a pie straight out the pizza oven.
From the geniuses at Consortium Holdings comes Rare Form, an upscale deli meets neighborhood bar where sandwiches are stuffed to the brim with pork belly, grilled swordfish, chicken schnitzel, and more gourmet fillings. The Gaslamp Quarter spot operates on the principle that there's a cocktail for every sandwich -- or that the Rare Form Whiskey Cocktail, a spin on the Old Fashioned, pairs with every sandwich. West Coast craft beers round out the menu, as do a few boilermakers.
This Pacific Beach spot has approximately 70 beers on tap and over 50 bottles of beer, making Draft a great place to kick back on your way home from the beach. While you're sipping, try some snacks from the menu, which is comprised of sharing plates, like mustard dusted pretzel bites; grilled items, like the bison burger with poblano pepper and cumin mayonnaise; greens, like the seared ahi salad; and sweets, like key lime pie. Draft’s boardwalk patio is a picturesque spot to grab a breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner bite with an oceanfront view, but if you want to catch the game, you’ll want to head inside to watch on one of the flat-screens.
