Week 5: Mediterraneo Italian Bar & Bistro and The Brigantine Seafood & Oyster Bar
April 17, 2015 (San Diego’s East County)--For this week’s series, our Eaters returned to savor happy hour specials at two local favorites: Mediterraneo Italian Bar & Bistro in Alpine and The Brigantine on Mt. Helix. The first offers divine Italian food in a European-style ambience, the second specializes in seafood served up amid a nautical theme. Both are delightful and unexpected “finds” for newcomers in East County—so it’s no wonder that each of these restaurants are popular gathering spots for locals in the know.
