Editorial Review of
Brooklyn Girl Eatery
Michael and Victoria McGeath, owners of the former Trattoria Acqua in La Jolla, recently announced plans for their new culinary concept, Brooklyn Girl Eatery in Mission Hills, which is slated to open doors winter 2011. Far from the fine dining vibe of their longstanding classic Italian restaurant, Brooklyn Girl will be a casual, welcoming neighborhood eatery designed for community interaction, and built on the all-important principle of affordable, approachable cuisine made with fresh, local ingredients. It’s a vision we’ve heard before, but one that we all believe in. Mission Hills is an intimate mid-city neighborhood that many local foodies call home, and McGeath’s farm-to-table experience may be just what the residents want. The multi-use building base on Goldfinch Avenue offers a raw, urban atmosphere, but the cuisine is what will bring this new restaurant to life. The McGeath’s are excited to unveil their selection for new executive chef, Tyler Thrasher – a young rising star in the local culinary scene. Tyler Thrasher was most recently with Oceanaire Seafood Room and Jsix at Hotel Solamar, both located in downtown San Diego. Read the full Brooklyn Girl Eatery review.
