Brian Malarkey To Open Burlap, A " Social Dining Experience"

It’s been just six months since Brian Malarkey launched Searsucker, his Thomas Schoos inspired space in San Diego’s Gas Lamp district. Now comes word that the Top Chef alum (Season Two) has again teamed up with Schoos to create Burlap. Malarkey says that this will “not be a restaurant but, a social dining experience.” The project will stand-alone in the Del Mar Heights shopping center and take on an “Asian-cowboy” theme. On the design side look for a koi-pond and fire pits, in addition to a glassed in kitchen, a separate raw bar, and one burlap wall. As for eats, think carpaccio, uni, oysters, yellowtail collar, rotisserie duck, quail, prime ribs with different glazes and brines, and yuzu-steak with ginger butter. Malarkey stated he is “not going for authentic Asian but, it will be fun” and he “will open on or about the first day of the Del Mar races in July.” [EaterWire] — David Morris
