I exhibited paintings at BURLAP in Del Mar, California on Sunday, July 22, 2012 from 9am until 3pm during the “BOOMING BRUNCH”. Introducing BURLAP, North County’s most anticipated restaurant opening and following up to acclaimed sister restaurant SEARSUCKER, from award winning BRAVO “TOP CHEF” finalist and one of the networks most talented celebrity chefs, Brian Malarkey and hospitality impresario James Brennan.
Located in the affluent coastal community of Del Mar, Burlap will follow in the footsteps of tremendously successful sister restaurant, Searsucker. Already a favorite of San Diego residents and visitors alike, Searsucker has been drawing an overflowing crowd since its first day open. Unlike Searsucker’s New American Classic Cuisine, Burlap’s offerings will be a hybrid of meat (raw, cooked and rotisserie), seafood, and bold sides with an Asian influence. Described in Malarkey’s playful tone as “Asian Cowboy” cuisine where the “West Eats Meat,” the menu will be divided into simple categories including: Land, Ocean, Rotisserie, Raw, Bowl, Stick, and Ours. Dishes will be paired with local craft beer, a selection of one-of-a-kind wines from all over the world, and handcrafted cocktails.
