whiskey girl
Whiskey Girl, where San Diego goes to dine, dance, drink and enjoy live entertainment has launched a revamped, expansive new menu that will appeal to a wider array of casual diners and Gaslamp Quarter nightlife-goes alike.

Chef and Restaurateur Brad Anderson, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, was brought in as a consultant to create a fresh and fun menu that encompasses Whiskey Girl’s energetic atmosphere and new design elements. "My goal was to create original menu items to help elevate the venue out of the shadow of bar-food and become a relevant dining location to a more diverse crowd of ever changing Gaslamp Quarter patrons,” said Brad Anderson.

The contemporary menu features high quality fresh ingredients, vibrant flavors, unexpected textures and unique food combinations. “We wanted everything on this menu to reflect Whiskey Girl’s new image; a pop-art inspired, casual and fun atmosphere,” said managing partner David Schiffman. Several signature dishes suggested by the Chef are:
