when i was in college and first discovered interior design i always thought i’d end up pursuing some sort of restaurant design career. i love the way that you get to embrace big concepts and some non-traditional design ideas. so i was excited to hear from christia about chef brian malarkey’s new san diego restaurant “searsucker“. brian shared a delicious lasagna and “sage sucker” drink recipe with us as part of last month’s top chef recipe series so i was psyched to get a little peek into his new spot. located in san diego’s historic gaslamp district, searsucker has a wonderful mix of reclaimed furniture and vintage pieces- i especially love the rugs they chose and the mix of wooden chairs. if you’re in town let me know how it all looks in person- but until then you can check out searsucker right here online.
