FIREHOUSE is a MUST stop if you are staying in the Pacific Beach area, or if you want to dine as you watch the most perfect ocean view sunset. This savvy lounge provides the perfect juxtaposition of Miami Beach cool with San Diego’s laid back disposition: Dipped in black & red sophistication and cooled down by the ocean breeze, it’s no wonder industry professionals, locals, and families alike find so much to adore about Firehouse American Eatery.
Most simply put, the food is fantastic: Some standouts include the Seared Scallops served with a delectably moist parmesan potato cake topped with a melted fennel leek compote, toasted almond slivers and creamy arugula pesto- this dish is divine decadence. The lightly-battered calamari is served w/ a samba aioli & a tangy “Firehouse” sauce, I am dying to get the recipe for – it is delish!
If you’re looking for something lighter on the waist line but robust on the palette the Strawberry Blue Salad is to die for: Organic greens tossed with fresh strawberries, blue cheese, candied pecans in a balsamic vinaigrette is a legend among locals.
Another lighter route: order from their raw bar! Freshly stocked daily, FIREHOUSE’s raw bar menu has great offerings, including oysters on the half shell, served on ice with spicy cocktail sauce and a house made mignonette. My personal favorite is the Ahi Stack: Chock full of fresh avocado, a delicious seaweed salad, and sushi-grade Ahi tuna, and served with wonton chips for snacking. Not over the top, with just the right amount of flavor allowing the flavor of the fresh tuna to stand on its own.
As an ode to the industry peeps, breakfast is served everyday until 3 pm – nightlife moguls need their sleep too! The Pecan Crusted French Toast is a personal favorite of mine…
