5 Famous Faces Who Dined at Searsucker: 

Chef Gordon Ramsey
Not only does he show support for his fellow celebrity chef, but his hit show “Hell’s Kitchen” featured Chef Brian Malarkey and Searsucker San Diego’s private dining room in Season 13.

Larry King
It wouldn’t be one of San Diego’s best restaurants without a visit from the “King.” The legendary television host stopped by Searsucker during San Diego Comic-Con week.

Brody Jenner
Often spotted in San Diego and at the Gaslamp District’s hottest restaurants, one of our most memorable moments with Brody Jenner was shortly after our opening for a boy’s night out!

Kellan Lutz
Even a Twilight star can’t resist the urge of dining beneath the roped lights and Edison bulbs! Along with other A-list celebrities, the heartthrob dined at Searsucker during San Diego Comic-Con.

Brian Malarkey
It is his restaurant, after all. Join us during weekend brunch or for dinner and you may spot the Top Chef alum in the kitchen or greeting guests in the main dining room.

Top 5 Cocktails We Love: 

Peter Rabbit
How could our signature Searsucker cocktail not make the list? Made with Pimm’s #1, bruised basil, pressed lemon and garnished with a pickled carrot, its iconic presentation (and taste) has helped it become Gaslamp staple.

Jaleberry Strawpeño
A house made infusion with strawberry jalapeño tequila + lime + agave, this cocktail recently turned pink in all 4 locations in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Mimosas at Brunch
5 years of bottomless, and now the opportunity to build your own mimosa in downtown San Diego. We love our weekend brunch, but we love it more with mimosas.

The Walking Dead
The cocktail that just keeps coming back to life, even after San Diego Comic-Con cocktails have come and gone. It is made with Bacardi, Hamilton’s black rum, lemon hart 151, cinnamon syrup, pineapple and ginger. 

Craft Beers
Is beer a cocktail? We’ll consider it for this list! Our bar features local craft brews on tap from Seasonal IPAs, Stone, Saint Archer, Modern Times and Alesmith brewing offerings! View the craft beer list.
