On Clairemont Mesa Boulevvard in Kearny Mesa, Khan’s Cave Grill & Tavern serves up creative pan-Asian cuisine in a comfortably chic space. The menu takes inspiration from traditional Asian flavors and offers modern twists to these rustic dishes with gourmet presentation. Patrons love the Creamy Walnut Shrimp, a lightly crisped shrimp in cream sauce with caramelized walnuts and served with a salad and white or brown rice. The sports-friendly outdoor patio space is a great place to relax with cocktails and appetizers, while enjoying the warmth of one of the fire pits. Khan’s also makes use of the thriving craft-brew scene in San Diego, featuring 20 different local beers on tap. Whether it’s an intimate date or after-work happy hour with friends, a visit to Khan’s Cave is always a great time.

If you’re nervous about choosing just one of Neighborhood’s 27 microbrews, don’t worry—you won’t have to. The beer flight allows you to taste a few. Pair them with one of the juicy burgers or an order of butter-poached black mussels for a satisfying pub meal.
Pork-belly hush puppies. A burger topped with aged gouda cheese. Bacon pâté, date jam, and garlic confit on toast. At Sessions Public, farm-to-table comfort food gets a high-society makeover. But 20 draft beers keep things relatively simple, as far as the drink menu is concerned.
