ironside fish & oyster

Ironside Fish & Oyster  a new restaurant completed by Paul Basile of local firm Basile Studio.  It is a space that echoes San Diego’s fishing roots with twists of design oddities.  The seafood and raw bar concept introduces a quirky maritime aesthetic to San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood.

Is San Diego’s most exciting new restaurant, Paul Basile has transformed a 1920s warehouse into a nautical-themed work of art that thoroughly backs up the clever wordplay on their signage with a little help from piranha skulls and giant lobster rolls. Let us explain.

The space was vast and we felt it need to be closed” says Basile, so five large steel doors and glass panel windows – created to easily flip up – can either divide the space or open it up to the outdoors.
