Crazy Good Food in San Diego
At Crazy Goose Bar & Lounge
by Tammy Marx
It’s Friday night and downtown San Diego is the place to be and be seen. With the Gaslamp Quarter steps away, sports enthusiasts and sophisticated foodies have an exciting, modern lounge to mix and kick off Friday night just right!
Crazy Goose Bar & Lounge beckons from Sixth Avenue and F Street with huge, open windows, café-style seating, windy trees, sleek steel, wood finishes and seductive neon blue lighting, showcasing the crazy amazing selection of wines. Flat screen TVs hang from the ceiling playing all the best games. A central bar with copious seating for sports fans ensures your seat is always the best seat in the house to view the big game.
Now, let’s get down to business, the CRAZY GOOD food! Crazy Goose Bar & Lounge is a scratch kitchen. If you want the best eats, get there early because once a delectable special or menu item is gone, it’s gone.
The food, prepared by Chef Jacob Greene and his staff, is fresh and local. Louis’ lobster tempura and fillet Mignon char-tar are great ways to begin your culinary journey. Velvety, silky lobster bisque and sweet beets topped with croquette of Monte Chev may have you second guessing if you’re in a hip downtown sports bar or a fine bistro.
The small plates and salads aren’t the only stars of CGB&L. Cool cocktails of champagne and elder flower, hand-selected regional wines and an impressive selection of local craft beers make the perfect accompaniment to the sports-posh menu.
Make it a downtown date night and impress with a fine meal of succulent maple-crusted truffle lamb chops, seared local flat iron steak and smoked tomato pappardelle, or bring the guys and business partners for an irresistible selection of burgers, and yes, even a burger challenge!
The list of ingredients on top of TT’s two pound burger challenge are too many to list; however, if you are dying for bragging rights among the guys and to be on a wall of flame, give this meaty challenge a try.
Brunch is a great way to spend a breezy, downtown San Diego morning. CGB&L features an outstanding brunch menu and they like to have a little fun too! Captain Crunch French toast, Hell’s hash and fried chicken and waffles are for serious breakfast eaters who came to play.
Fillet Mignon, salmon confit and double smoked ham round out the Benedict offerings. Fluffy pancakes, stuffed omelettes and decadent biscuits and gravy give the staunchest down-home, scratch cookin’ ladies a run for their culinary money.
Whether you’re in the mood for an elegant date night, sports and drinks with the guys or brunch with your family, Crazy Goose Bar & Lounge will surprise you with their fresh, local food, modern decor and crazy good selection of beverages, cocktails and spirits. Stop by today for a sophisticated, downtown sports lounge like no other.
