Editorial Review of
Basic Urban Kitchen and Bar
BASIC features a 5,000 square foot urban-industrial restaurant lounge setting. Basic combines pizza eats, upscale drinks, alternative special events, and always-unique music. Within the basics, Basic offers three main areas; including the restaurant, bar and dance floor, and posh yet simple lounge. Clean lines, smart design, concrete floors, high ceilings, and industrial décor set the anti-Gaslamp tone of this East Village essential. The urban kitchen menu reflects the minimalism streak that runs throughout the bar. East Coast Pizza creates the one-page menu, with every topping imaginable plus a few salad options. Basic provides the contemporary swank and indie crowd with a new-age neighborhood stomping-ground unlike anything else in San Diego.
