Sessions Public

I think I love this place! Basically my exact words as I walked inside the neighborhood eatery Sessions Public this past Saturday night. We have been talking about going to Sessions Public forever a while now and finally got around to getting out of our hoods to do so! It was worth the drive to get to the secret spot in Point Loma but why did we wait so long to go? It was jam packed with loud diners who all seemed to be eating the special which was some sort of beer flight and crab bowl for $35.00. SP has a bar type atmosphere, with farm to table bar food. Sustainable food sources, sixteen taps that change daily with local brews, and a variety of mules served out of copper mugs. What more can you ask for? Well I'll tell you what else. The damn good vibe that is rolling through this place. Its a locals spot for sure and Sessions Public is somewhat of a secret among them. It is far from your too-cool-for-school hipster locals but real San Diego locals, families and friends. A local, hip, beach vibe without the attitude and without the scene. Finally! With a name like Sessions Public, which references both going surfing and going out for for some drinks with friends, you can't expect anything but a great vibe. The first time restaurant owner, Abel Kaase, is a San Diego native and grew up in Point Loma.
Enough about the vibe...the decor is rad! Sessions Public was designed by Michael Soriano who designed, The Pearl Hotel, Analog Music and Burger Bar, and Vin De Syrah. SP has lots of reclaimed wood around the bar, concrete floors, and bright orange chairs, which gave it industrial recycled modern look to it. I loved my stuffed duck friends hanging on the wall over the bar.The food was off the hook too. We started with the Duck Fat Fries which were delicious and served with the most garlicky aioli I have ever had. We also had The Burger which is my new favorite burger in town and claiming it the best burger in town. The Angus meat was cooked medium and to perfection. What went on the burger was the best part, tomato confit, garlic aioli, picked red onions, aged Gouda cheese and greens. Nothing was over powering and all the ingredients complimented each other delightfully.
We also had the Short Rib Sliders with garlic aioli, house pickled onions and arugula. I loved both and I am already stressed out with what I am going to order when I go back.
Other enticing options on the menu included the BLT with tempura fried bacon, Spicy Cobb Salad with Prawns, Chicken Oysters, and Duck Confit Thai Summer Rolls.I can't wait for my next session at Sessions Public. I'm sure it will be just as epic.
