The Lion's Share

French Fries - with herbs, parmesan, and mustard aioli
Oysters on the Halfshell - served with champagne mignonette
Antelope Sliders - red onion marmalade and smoked gouda
Cheese Plate - seasonal accoutrements
This weekend my girlfriend and I visited The Lion's Share,
San Diego's newest craft cocktail lounge. 
Opened since last month,
this new joint is already building a reputation for serving thoughtful spirits and hearty California cuisine. 

I personally was charmed by the theme. 
The operating partners brought one of my favorite fables to life,
while keeping the surroundings as cozy as a British library. 

The food and cocktails were delicious,
but perhaps the most appetizing of all,
were the bartenders. 

Yes, ladies. 
These guys all looked like they were auditioning for an open spot with the Killers
Nuff said.

This looks like my kind of place! I love craft cocktail bars/restaurants! We have a few here in Madison(WI) but i'm sure not any nearly as nice as this one in San Diego!
