InterContinental San Diego’s Director of Food and Beverage, Jeff Josenhans, states “With all these updates and between our team of incredible chefs and our brand new sommelier, open air location with a panoramic view of the bay and skyline, and the addition of new artwork from the third artist Garibaldi has collaborated with since its inception, this restaurant is inarguably one of the most unique dining experiences in San Diego.”

From revamped dinner, brunch and cocktail menus, to a new art installation by celebrated artist Oriana Poindexter and the addition of accomplished sommelier, Jeffery Andersen, it is clear Garibaldi has their finger on the pulse of the restaurant industry’s imperative continued evolution.
