Searsucker Restaurant Review

: There’s a fetching party happening at Searsucker. Set in a 7,000-square-foot warehouse in the middle of the Gaslamp, with a compelling design from Thomas Schoos, diners and imbibers gather for cocktails curated by the Snake Oil mixology team. The Indian Summer brings together fresh pressed apple juice, Grey Goose La Poire and Leopold Apple. Whether you hang out in the comfortable lounge, hit the communal table or dine à deux, the entertainment never stops with the chefs visible in the open kitchen. The menu is divided into bites, smalls, greens, ocean, ranch and farm. Small plates abound, with bacon in various forms --- we recommend the pork butt with warm apple salad and bacon emulsion, and the carb-free crab cake. The King Sundae is a marvel with peanut butter cup ice cream, honey caramel, whipped cream, candied peanuts and, you guessed it, bacon.
