AIRR is now closed.
Located between Side Bar and Searsucker on Market in downtown San Diego, a street level door opens up to a tall staircase that leads you to an urban graffiti-tagged entryway. Divided into two sleek monochromatic spaces inside, AIRR welcomes guests first into the crimson red room adorned with custom designed modern lounge furniture. The historic building’s incredible windows offer electric light from the buzzing Gaslamp Quarter below, while contemporary chandeliers set the tone for intimate conversation amid a dim and somewhat mysterious glow. Accompanied by loud DJ beats and a large full service bar, the red room is where guests go to mix, mingle, drink and dance.
When you are ready to dine, escape the red haze and wander into the white room – the picture of purity that instantly sets your mind at ease. The walls, the long family-style booths, the floors; everything is white hot, drawing your full attention to the food. AIRR features an eclectic menu created by Executive Chef Brian Redzikowski, a New York native who has worked in top restaurants such as Nobu Matsuhisa, Le Cirque 2000 and Joel Robuchon. Throughout fifteen years and multiple cities, Chef Brian has crafted his own unique style to apply modern techniques to classic French dishes using Asian ingredients.
