Located off the beaten path in Little Italy, Sirena Gourmet Latin Seafood Restaurant has become known for its delicious Latin twist on seafood and almost-too-pretty-to-eat plates and has recently unveiled new spring, happy hour and seven-course chefs’ tasting menus.
“I want not only my Chilean heritage, but the mix of Latin heritages from my entire team to be represented in our dishes and in the way we treat our customers,” said Executive Chef Jaime Chavez, who worked at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Spain before heading to San Diego. “Our team is inspired by our eclectic heritages, as well as what’s seasonal and fresh in San Diego. Rather than import spices from our native countries, we responsibly give a local twist to our cuisine.”

Sirena's new happy hour menu is offered on Tuesday through Saturday from 4-7pm and includes a selection of reduced priced beers ($3-4), wines ($4-6) and snacks, including $2 fish tacos, $2 empanadas and more. The chefs tasting menu is rotated almost on a daily basis and is offered with the regular dinner menu, featuring daily specials, Chef Jaime's favorites and on-the-wh.
In the midst of the hotbed of Italian eateries, Sirena is a refreshing detour worth taking. And here’s a secret - the entire menu, from ceviche to scallops, can be made vegan, upon request.
Sirena Gourmet Latin Seafood Restaurant is located at 1901 Columbia Street in Little Italy. For more information, call (619) 564-8970 and visit sirenagourmet.com.
