Craft & Commerce
675 W. Beech St.
San Diego, CA 92101
Unequivocally equal parts restaurant and conversational destination, its unique aesthetic resembles that of a dimly-lit, industrial literary cabin with hundreds of hardbound classic novels stacked on ceiling-high bookshelves. Not for the faint of heart, Craft & Commerce’s century-old taxidermy is mounted and displayed throughout the restaurant. Having collaborated with San Diego’s Natural History Museum, guests are greeted by a dramatic grassland scene of a lion preying over a warthog displayed above the taps at the main bar—while the heads and antlers of leviathan beasts are mounted on the tarnished wood-flanked walls, taunting diners with primal realism as they engulf their carnivorous fare.Visit Site
