Here’s a taste of what’s on tap today at the Beard House.

Baja Seafood and Spirits Celebration, 7:00 P.M.
Jason McLeod, Ironside Fish & Oyster, San Diego / Bartender Erick Castro, Polite Provisions, San Diego

It’s no secret that San Diego’s dining offerings are replete with pristine seafood, but one of the city’s lesser-known assets is its booming cocktail scene. Tonight’s Beard House dinner showcases both, with chef Jason McLeod preparing Baja seafood and acclaimed bartender Erick Castro on drinks duty. Expect flavor-packed plates such as Smoked Abalone with Avocados, Seaweed, and Butter; Chocolate Clams Casino with Bacon and Romesco; and San Diego Uni with Mussel Escabèche and Red Kelp
