Común Kitchen & Tavern

Común Kitchen & Tavern remains only loosely tethered to a sense of place. Baja California, Mexico's ingredients, flavors, and culinary traditions serve as chef Chad White's starting point. From there, creativity trumps convention as he forges imaginative, contemporary renditions of classic dishes, which earned him the title of San Diego's Chef of the Year from Eater. The resulting menus always showcase Baja Californian roots, albeit with eclectic flair.

Market-Driven Menus

Chefs browse the city's docks and farmers' markets each morning, allowing the freshest ingredients available to dictate the menu's selections. Dishes can range from the familiar—zesty ceviche tostadas with avocado to temper the piquant jalapeño and chili oil—to more creative options, such as a pot of clams, smoked mahi-mahi, hominy, and red onion steamed in an aromatic broth made with Mexican beer and chorizo jus.

Artistic Environs

Común Kitchen & Tavern's decor is a blend of natural and industrial elements. With its brushed metal, concrete, brick, and reclaimed woodwork, the space creates a distinctively modern ambiance. Contributing to this modern vibe are the open kitchen, large surrealistic wall pieces by a local artist, and a self-serve draft station with LED screens above the taps that describe each craft beer.

Customer Reviews

Great place good was great lots of good beer but they need chilled beer glasses for all the beer choices

They have a seasonal menu so it changes every 3-4 months. The summer menu was delicious! Highly recommend the elote (corn) under the snacks section of the summer menu.

Amazing food and great atmosphere. Don't be afraid to explore the menu, everything is absolutely delicious. Also has about a dozen beers on a pay by the ounce tap set up allowing you to try many different beers without commiting to a full pint.
