Editorial Review of
R Gang Eatery
We first fell for his cuisine at the former Confidential, but Rich Sweeney really gained fame as a contestant on Season 5 of Bravo TV’s Emmy-winning show Top Chef. When back in San Diego, Sweeney made plans for first independent venture, a neighborhood restaurant designed to embrace everything about the local community in Hillcrest. One year strong, the successfulR Gang Eatery continues to thrive as a reflection of Sweeney’s culinary skill and lovable personality, enhanced with authentic gayborhood attitude. R Gang Eatery stands for food and fun, refueled.
R Gang Eatery serves full brunch, lunch and dinner menus, and offers great daily specials. For dinner, start with the addictive Melon & Burrata Salad, and treat yourself to Blacktop Blonde Beer Can Chicken, Chai Spiced Scallops, Frosted Flake Barramundi, or the Dr. Pepper Pork Chop for your fun and filling entrée. With the size of these portions, you likely won’t have room for dessert; but you must not skip on the ridiculous desserts, such as the Peanut Butter Mousse or Cheesecake Lollipops. Daily ‘Happy Hour Refueled’ boasts $4-5 nibbles, $3 well drinks, $4 Cupcake wines, and $5 specialty cocktails.
