Taste of Gaslamp is back for it’s 25th year! Eating at 35 downtown restaurants could take a year. The 25th annual Taste of Gaslamp presented by Karl Strauss provides an opportunity to accomplish this epicurean feat in one delicious afternoon.
On Saturday, June 15, 2019, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., dozens of chefs will put their best flavors forward to impress the more than one thousand food fanatics who will gather in the Gaslamp to experience the neighborhood’s latest culinary offerings.
“Foodies love this event,” says Michael Georgopoulos, Chairman of the Gaslamp Quarter Association and co-owner of RMD Group, a hospitality company that owns and operates restaurants and bars in San Diego. “Taste of Gaslamp gives them the chance to experience a cross-section of new kitchens, check out seasonal menus at their established favorites and decide which venues will earn their ongoing patronage.”
Taste of Gaslamp sells out each year. Attendees who snag tickets will embark upon a self-guided culinary tour of many of the Gaslamp Quarter’s best and most notable bars and restaurants. This year, more than 35 venues are getting in on the hospitality action, wooing and wowing new and repeat customers with mini versions of their popular dishes. General admission tickets include visits to 27 restaurants and access to the Karl Strauss beer garden (must be age 21 or older to enter the beer garden). VIP ticket holders gain exclusive access to eight additional upscale restaurants, each serving a signature cocktail and an afterparty at the historic Horton Grand Hotel.
