Perched where land meets sea on the shores of San Diego's Mission Bay, Tidal is a restaurant that offers a thoughtful dining selection of local seafood and craft beverages that, like the ever changing tides, shift seasonally at Mother Nature's whim. Anchored by deep Mediterranean influences, Chef Amy DiBiase presents modern, light adaptations of traditional seafood dishes such as olive oil poached halibut, ricotta gnudi and chicken confit. Keeping in even keel with the kitchen, the bar offers an impressive collection of boutique wines, SoCal craft beers and mixed drinks by cocktail craftsmen Snake Oil.
Uncomplicated. Laid-back. Tidal is both in food and furnishings. Set in what was a private beach house in the 60s, this San Diego restaurant's mid-century modern design draws from the era it was built by Hollywood producer Jack Skirball. A fire pit-dotted deck, communal tables, cozy lounge and savory menu of shared plates beckon casual group gatherings and lively conversation - though the 180° views of Mission Bay might just leave you at a loss for words.
