Ocean Beach locals and savvy San Diego foodies may have already heard the news: there's a new restaurant in town. Raglan Public House is now open daily from 11am to 11pm, serving organic, grass-fed burgers (with vegan options also available), salads, chicken sandwiches, ahi, lamb and a spread of local craft beers.
This New Zealand spot is brought to you by the good folks behind Bare Back Grill, with the aim to add sustainable cuisine and chill vibes to the seaside 'hood.
The first thing you notice is how at ease you feel. The atmosphere, complete with reclaimed wood tables, loads of natural lighting due to retractable front windows, mellow reggae music and tons of open space, makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. Next to be noticed are the fun, playful touches throughout the restaurant, including chalk boards, games at each table, dartboards, shuffleboard tables and whimsical videos rotating on TV screens.
With 24 beers on tap from local breweries and tons of bottled options (including several straight from New Zealand), you're sure to find a brew to match your mood. For a taste of the local scene, sip on Coronado Happy Daze, Lost Abbey Red Barn Saison, Karl Strauss Imperial Stout or Stone Smoked Porter. A variety of wines and specialty drinks are also served.
