Jason McLeod

Ironside Fish & Oyster - 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. You’ll get a taste of both at this Beard House dinner, with chef Jason McLeod preparing Baja seafood and acclaimed bartender Erick Castro on drinks duty.
