Backyard Kitchen & Tap presents “a place for PB to play” with the exciting opening of their new restaurant and bar this Friday, February 27th. As its name suggests, this chic, yet cozily coastal American eatery will be a natural fit for the laidback vibe of Pacific Beach. Backyard Kitchen and Tap is taking over the space previously occupied by Moondoggies, renovating it into a modernly rustic grub-and-brew hotspot. Garage doors that open to the street invite all to enjoy interior spaces that are flanked with artfully crafted reclaimed wood interiors. Outdoor areas will be celebrated with three cabanas, live walls, fire pits and an indoor/outdoor bar; setting the stage for memorable nights on the patio with late night DJ’s and live music.
James Nunn, executive chef, brings his expertise from working at Union Kitchen and Tap to create delicious coastal fare that reflects the beauty surrounding Pacific Beach. Savor homemade specialties any time of day with three large menus that satisfy hungry appetites for brunch, lunch and dinner. Start your day off right with an order of Egg Benedicts, Biscuits and Gravy, or Pulled Pork Hash. Backyard’s gourmet flatbreads, pulled pork sandwich, or grilled salmon salad all make perfect meals for a patio lunch surrounded by lush greens. Finish up your culinary journey with one of Backyard’s many entrées such as Pan Seared Barramundi or Grilled Colorado Lamb Rack. With an extensive list of craft cocktails and local beers to choose from, Backyard Kitchen and Tap offers the perfect culinary experience for everyone.
Proprietor and restaurateur Eric Leitstein is carrying out his vision of creating a beachside spot that seamlessly complements the PB lifestyle. “I want our guests to get a feel for the unique sense of community Pacific Beach locals and visitors share, and bring them together for a fun, relaxing and tasty experience.” Leitstein is a proven success as the CEO of OMG Hospitality Group, which includes Union Kitchen and Tap (with locations in both the Gaslamp District and Encinitas), Pacific Beach Ale House and Vail Alehouse in Colorado.
