Sea & Smoke

A hundred years ago, way before “comfort food” was even a thing, people ate what tasted good, what made them feel just right. Meat lived at the ranch, vegetables grew at the farm, seafood was caught right before dinner.

At Sea & Smoke, the trend is providing a satisfying eating experience like the ones that existed before dining trends did. With chef Matt Gordon (also the chef/owner at Urban Solace in North Park, and Solace & The Moonlight Lounge in Encinitas) at the helm, this American-style brasserie impassions patrons with fresh interpretations of classic dishes that celebrate simplicity and wholesome integrity. It’s Gordon’s commitment to healthful living that makes him serve responsibly sourced meats, seafood and vegetables. It’s what he does with these ingredients in his restaurant’s wood-fired oven that makes Sea & Smoke the hot topic of North County’s culinary conversations. From breakfast to late-night, and gluten-free to gluttonous, this is where real food happens.
