Before the restaurant opened its doors last Friday, May 9, SanDiegoVille founders were some of the lucky few granted a first taste of a variety of Executive Chef Sean Langlais' menu offerings at the gleaming new Union Kitchen & Tap Gaslamp. The former Donovan's Prime Seafood space received a beautiful redesign to transform the location into a hip, modern-industrial dining and nightlife destination right in the heart of San Diego's downtown district.
Union Kitchen & Tap Gaslamp has an impressive interior design using reclaimed wood and modern furnishings to bring its Americana concept to life, along with garage-style doors that open up to a generous open-air patio on bustling 5th Avenue. The food is inventive American cuisine featuring a product driven menu that reflects a repertoire of new and traditional cooking methods and dishes using ingredients available from land and sea. A craft cocktail program and focus on local brews rounds out a solid menu with plenty of options for all dietary preferences.
Union Kitchen & Tap has brought their modern yet rustic eatery down from the beach town of Encinitas to San Diego’s historic Gaslamp Quarter. With cuisine made from scratch, craft beers, signature cocktails, room for private parties, frequent live music and an unrivaled stylish and comfortable ambiance, downtown didn't know what it had been missing. Union Kitchen & Tap Gaslamp will undoubtedly thrive in its new location.
Union Kitchen & Tap is located at 333 5th Avenue. For more information, visit gaslampunion.com.
