Sea 180 !!

I was lucky enough to be invited to a preview dinner at the fabulous new restaurant in Imperial Beach. The name of this incredible eatery is Sea 180 Coastal Tavern (as in 180 degree view of our beautiful beach and pier). Sea 180 is located in the new Pier South Hotel at 800 Seacoast Drive. I hardly know where to start! I've anxiously anticipated the opening and have had all of my expectations exceeded! You will immediately feel welcome by the beautiful decor...a perfect combination of sophisticated, comfortable design and beach rustic.There is a full and beautifully stocked bar, gorgeous dining area and deck overlooking the beach... perfect for a glass of wine or cocktail at sunset. The staff are welcoming and knowledgable. I had perfect service. As for the food, we've never seen anything like it in Imperial Beach before. Everything I had was excellent. The menu is varied and while the attention to detail in preparation is incredible, the presentation isn't fussy The menu offers many items to share and share we did! We sampled duck carnitas tacos, seared scallops with a gorgeous bacon jam, whole fish prepared with shaved fennel, sirloin steak smothered in mushrooms over a cloud of cauliflower puree, an incredible hamburger with carmelized onions and much, much more! I would recommend it all! This great spot will be open to the public soon. I know that they are offering special menus for Christmas Day and New Year's Eve. The phone number for reservations is 619-631-4949. Let's all get out and support this welcome addition to Imperial Beach and the entire South Bay...there's nothing to compare!!
