Editorial Review of
Del Mar Brigantine
The Del Mar Brigantine boasts spectacular views of both the famous Del Mar racetrack and the Pacific Ocean. A San Diego tradition since 1969, Brigantine Seafood has earned many awardss over the years, including "Best Swordfish in the World" title from USA Today. The Brigantine is reknonwed for its fantastic Happy Hour and bustling Oyster Bars, which make it a San Diego favorite for fresh seafood and steaks and chops, as well as for friendly and knowledgeable staff. The warm and inviting facilities help with the poopularity of the restaurant, too, and the restaurant’s heated outdoor dining deck is the perfect place to bask in the midday sun over martinis, or to sup under the stars. The deck and adjoining lush garden can be reserved for a banquet, meeting or wedding, and the entire restaurant can be reserved and rented for celebrations of truly epic proportions. The Brigantine offers unique accomodations in all of its San Diego locations; wedding ceremonies and receptions, corproate meetings and seminars, birthdays, anniversaries, retirement parties and all other celebrations are welcome. Catering is also available upon inquiry, and as the Brigantine is a family-owned operation, the restaurant is extremely flexible and it is possible to work out menus specifically tailored to one's event.
The kitchen features a impressive selection of seafood, like wok-charred ahi stacked with Asian vegetables, an egg-battered, sautéed calamari steak, and fresh grilled swordfish, served with savory avocado butter. The pollo cazadores, chicken breast encrusted with tortilla and sautéed in Cazadores tequila, is one of the restaurant’s most irresistible draws.
