Chef Amy DiBiase to Open 'Tidal' | New Waterfront Restaurant at Paradise Point

The waterfront location of Tidal

March 27, 2014

Chef Amy DiBiase’s highly anticipated new dining concept, Tidal, will launch on April 10 on the west shore of Paradise Point Resort & Spa’s 44-acre island. Set in what was once a private home in the 1960s, the new 3,000-sq. ft. restaurant will offer panoramic waterfront dining on San Diego’s Mission Bay. Joining executive chef Amy DiBiase is Chef Kyle Bergman, who recently left his post at La Valencia. On February 17, 2014, Paradise Point's signature waterfront restaurant Baleen closed to make way for this new concept.

Offering a menu where “craft and catch” converge, Tidal will feature a thoughtfully curated selection of local seafood, seasonal ingredients and craft beverages in a laid-back bayside setting. Known for putting a Mediterranean twist on California Coastal cuisine, Chef Amy’s creations will be anchored by deep French and Italian influences that result in light, modern adaptations of traditional seafood dishes. Highlights include ricotta gnudi, chicken confit and olive oil poached halibut.

Drawing inspiration from the ever changing tides, the menu will evolve at Mother Nature’s whim using only seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. Tidal will also be home to a carefully culled collection of oysters, cheeses and small-production beverages coordinated by Chef Kyle Bergman.

The renovation team sought to preserve the building’s original architecture while infusing a contemporary interpretation of design from the era it was built by Hollywood producer Jack Skirball.  The resulting ambiance is an airy beach house grounded by the use of industrial and mid-century elements such as riveted aviator chairs, capiz shell globes and live edge wooden tabletops.  A nod to the structure’s residential roots, communal tables, a plush indoor lounge, and cozy fire pits encourage collective dining and causal group gatherings.  Expansive windows and a spacious deck line the western facade, revealing unrivaled 180-degree views of Mission Bay.  

Tidal will serve dinner seven days a week and offer complimentary parking. For more information, visit
