Pacific Beach’s highly anticipated Waterbar is shaping up to be the area’s most anticipated culinary gem. With a focus on a “social seafood” menu and an unbeatable view of the coast, this beachside eatery is slated to open in December 2017.
With newly appointed Executive Chef Steven Lona at the helm of the kitchen, the eatery is bound to please the city’s most discerning palates, as he brings with him a trove of experience from his years in the industry and his experience as a chef at Tasting Room Del Mar. His excitement towards the role is contagious, as he plans to utilize his position to support local purveyors and craft an innovative menu that invites a social feel.
Waterbar’s chosen bar manager, Brian Gaudet, also brings a seasoned outlook to the table, as his past experiences as assistant general manager at The Hake and general manager at Searsucker Del Mar, are what make him a valuable addition to Waterbar’s dream team. In addition to Gaudet, Waterbar GM Brent Noll is a trained sommelier, which will enable Waterbar to maintain a thoughtfully curated wine list that will pair seamlessly with Chef Lona’s top notch cuisine.
