Magnolia Tap & Kitchen
Rumor has it that, back in the 1880s, Wyatt Earp himself owned the building on 6th and East Streets known as the Magnolia Saloon. These days, the space belongs to Aaron Cribbes, who pays homage to the 19th-century bar with Magnolia Tap & Kitchen. The interior evokes that bygone era with antique touches such as stocked bookcases, salvaged stained-glass windows, and old-school growlers from local breweries. That goes for the bar's from-scratch cocktails, too, which honor the Old West with names like 1887—a gin-spiked blend of ginger-flavor liqueur, chartreuse, and lemons.
These libations complement the cuisine of chef Adam Sweetow, who spins local and sustainable ingredients into comfort-food classics. Tomato bisques accompany grilled cheeses made with three cheeses, and fish-and-chips plates sport beer-battered rockfish and caper remoulade. To end meals on a sweet note, guests can chow down on the pecan pie, named the city's best by San Diego Magazine for its "perfect crunchy-chewy-smooth combo." All the while, flat-screen TVs show the day's biggest games, and, on most weekends, live musicians perform upbeat music.
