Searsucker, San Diego

Concierge.com's insider take:
The handsome Searsucker, a 7,000-square-foot space in the Gaslamp District, is filled with mismatched chairs, unfinished wood tables, rope chandeliers, and cowhides aplenty. The crowd is a combination of creatives, suits, and pre-partiers. San Diego celeb chef Brian Malarkey—one third of a dream team that includes boldface designer Thomas Schoos and local nightlife czar James Brennan—mans the exhibition kitchen and serves up SoCal dishes such as short ribs, goat cheese dumplings, and fig-flanked Baja scallops. Looking to class up the hair of the dog? The bourbon-loaded "man-mosa" served during Sunday brunch is a cure-all.—Audrey Davidow
