The Fleetwood is the new focal point in East Village for local fine dining enthusiasts, swanky nightlife connoisseurs, and PETCO Park fans. Now secure in its new J Street locale, The Fleetwood is taking a turn toward benevolence - catering to a new crowd and a lineup of noble causes.
The Fleetwood announces the advent of Dining for a Cause - a new weekly series that intertwines dining, entertainment, and charity in the name of nightlife.
On Tuesdays, The Fleetwood will spotlight a rotating roster of national and local charities. From 4pm until midnight each Tuesday, The Fleetwood will donate 10% of all proceeds to the charity of choice.
Opt for cuisine with a conscience this holiday season in San Diego. When planning holiday dinner parties, holiday work parties, or happy hour with friends - head to The Fleetwood and pair peace of mind and the warmth of altruism with famed local cuisine.
On the menu, you'll find familiar favorites alongside exotic fare. The best part: all menu items are reasonably priced and the serving sizes leave you completely satisfied.
The Ahi Poke appetizer is Ahi served with avocado, green onions, and sesame in a bed of fresh tortilla chips - flavorful and light, and perfect for munching. The Fleetwood's famous Tater Tots aren't what you remember from the school cafeteria. They are about 5 times bigger, prepared with the finest ingredients, and served with a gourmet dipping sauce.
Choose from a hearty offering of comfort foods for the main course. Classic dishes with a modern, healthy twist will leave you warm and never overwhelmed in the cool of winter. Make sure to try the Country Fried Steak and Pork Chop (pictured).
