North County San Diego just got decidedly more chic with the recent opening of Searsucker Del Mar, the newest SoCal site for the burgeoning dining brand that’s been a Gaslamp District draw since 2010. Now the fun-and-food-loving folks in North County can bask in Searsucker’s distinctive mix of sophisticated food served in a lively environment. This restaurant has made great strides in turning Del Mar Highlands into a bona fide culinary destination.

Once the spot of Burlap, the restaurant has been transformed from a trendy bar scene to a stylish hot spot of New American cuisine from the brains and brawn of Top Chef Season 3 finalist and celebrity chef Brian Malarkey along with business partner James Brennan. Uniquely conceived as a social dining encounter that proffers inspired gourmet fare, both the menu and the décor have been designed for a communal epicure experience.

The restaurant has a warm and comfortable beach town vibe within its indoor and outdoor space. The outdoor patio features a Koi pond (with fish humorously named after restaurant employees), a fire pit, and cozy seating that guests can enjoy while noshing on the incredible — and sometimes whimsical — food adeptly executed by Chef de Cuisine Andrew “Dizzle” Phillips. From lunch to brunch and dinner to drinks, Chef Phillips creatively executes many tongue-in-cheek dishes.

When asked what sets his restaurant apart from others in the area, Chef Malarkey urges, “It’s definitely the atmosphere and environment! Searsucker Del Mar is a great place with different spots—from the private dining room and the indoor/outdoor bar to the fire pit and Koi pond. This makes it a great place to bring together a lot of people. It's far and away the biggest and most fun place in North County!”

Regarding his favorite aspects of the restaurant, Chef Malarkey’s mentions “how bright, light, and open the space has become, as well as all the different environments in which you can eat, relax, and entertain in.”

Many agree, including some famous faces, “It's a hotspot for the Real Housewives of Orange County and Los Angeles as well as BRAVO stars, in general. We have a ton of BRAVO executives and producers in here and have even shot an episode of Millionaire Matchmaker there,” said Malarkey. “Bo Derek has also been in, and she is one of my favorites. The Del Mar jockeys are also frequent guests of the restaurant.”

The menu is divided into many plates and options, including a wide range of Bites, Smalls, Raw and Greens sections; while the entrée selections are comprised of Ocean, Ranch and Farm. During my visit, I sampled much of what Searsucker has to offer, and I can tell you that it is a lot. Exciting and kinetic atmosphere aside, each and every dish did the impossible, nearly outshining the plate prior, with the experience stunningly unfolding—and my anticipation growing exponentially—with each course.

Among the dynamic starter dishes sampled were: Kobe Carpaccio with shaved truffle, mustard, and manchego; Short Rib “Hunter” with horseradish and fried onion; and Shrimp “Spicy” and Bacon Grits. Moving onto the main courses, some of the standouts were the Salmon Roots with parsnip puree, root vegetables, and pistachios and the unequivocal star of the show—a moist and tender Ribeye “Tomahawk” with cognac and horseradish. Making sure to save room for dessert, I savored the Granny’s Banana Cake with caramel, cream cheese and praline ice cream.

Even amid all of this food fabulosity, it would be remiss to not give a shout out to the beverage program at Searsucker. Paired with the food or enjoyed entirely on their own, the creative cocktails and delectable drinks like the Pear Tree with Zaya aged rum, Fernet Branca, pear and lemon was all balanced perfectly. Or, after a day at the Del Mar Racetrack, the Mint Juleps are a must! Stop by on Tuesday night and you’ll be able to try new wines and get half off select bottles.

The menu and bar innovations are no surprise given the pedigree of the partners in charge. In less than two years, Chef Malarkey and hospitality visionary James Brennan, as part of the Enlightened Hospitality Group, have created five wildly successful restaurant concepts. Other notables in their stable include Gabardine, Gingham, and Herringbone. All of these have received top marks by restaurant critics with Time Magazine naming Searsucker the country’s #2 hottest restaurant in 2011.

Prior to opening his first restaurant in 2010, Chef Malarkey, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Portland, commanded the brigade at the Oceanaire Seafood Room where he garnered over 60 industry awards in five years. While there, he competed as a finalist on Top Chef Miami. Since then, he has hosted and guest starred on TLC, Travel Channel, BRAVO and OWN. He was also on ABC’s cooking competition show The Taste, as a judge/mentor alongside Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, and Ludo Lefebvre.

In looking forward in terms of what Chef Malarkey would like to achieve with Searsucker, he noted, “Our short-term goal is to get everyone to come check it out. Our long-term goals are to continue building a relationship with the community. It's a neighborhood restaurant so we want to continue reaching out to families and friends of Del Mar, Carmel Valley, and the other North County communities in hopes that they come visit us a few times a week.”


Searsucker Del Mar


Searsucker Del Mar is a restaurant by Chef Brian Malarkey, serving New American cuisine.

The restaurant has been on my to-do list for quite some time as we pass by it often and have heard good things. We were recently invited in for dinner and had an amazing meal.

calamari chili honey glaze / apples

We started our evening with some appetizers. I really enjoyed this calamari, with its sweet and tangy chili sauce.

tuna poke & shaved taro root radish / sriracha / cilantro

I have such a weakness for jar appetizers. We chose the tuna poke which was served with taro chips. It’s not a combination I’ve had before, but I enjoyed it. By itself, the poke sauce used to marinate the tuna was a little on the salty side, but it balanced out well when eaten with the taro chips.

tomato & burrata basil / olive oil / balsamic

Our server also brought this jar out for us to try and I’m so glad he did. The tomatoes were so sweet, the burrata was creamy and savory. I enjoyed every bite. I’ve said this before, but eating fresh tomatoes with burrata, basil and balsamic is one of my favorite things. Yes, this dish was simple, but it was done right. I’ve actually had several disappointing versions lately of this classic Italian dish at other restaurants due to poor tomatoes, low quality cheese, etc. So I was quite happy to taste this version which was executed so well.

36oz ribeye tomahawk

We were already getting full, so I didn’t think we could possibly handle such a big entree, but our server had been spot-on about every suggestion so far and he sold us on the description of Searsucker’s tomahawk steak. It’s quite large and meant for sharing. It is served with grilled vegetables and two sides of your choice.

When this steak came out, it was quite a beautiful sight. The meat was perfectly cooked and already pre-sliced and removed from the bone. I was sad that such a big bone would go to waste and then Mr. K reminded me that we would be visiting my parent’s house in just a few days so we could bring the bone back to my dog Mochi.

The steak was incredibly flavorful and we savored every blissful bite. One of the best bites we’ve had all year.

If you really love steak, this dish is definitely worth considering next time there is a special occasion or you want to treat yourself or your loved one.

We asked to have the bone wrapped, which they did for us. The bone was so long it was almost as long as Mochi! She was so excited when I pulled it out for her–I’ve never seen her like this. Don’t worry, we didn’t let her have it all. But she really loved it and was not happy about us taking it away from her.

brussels & walnuts

For our sides, we got the brussels sprouts and macaroni and cheese. I loved the brussels sprouts. They were roasted and seasoned with a cider vinegar. I don’t usually like vinegar flavor in my foods, but this really worked for me. I ate almost the entire dish myself.

mac & cheese

Mr. K, of course, loved the macaroni and cheese. I enjoyed it as well, though could only handle a few bites after so much food. It was rich, cheesy, and the sour cream and chives helped to balance out the rich cheese sauce.

chocolate peanut butter tart

The chocolate peanut butter tart was quite decadent, paired with ice cream and caramel corn.

fried banana bread pudding

Let me repeat that: fried banana bread. This was life-changing. I can’t believe I haven’t had fried banana bread until this visit and now I want to make fried banana bread all the time. The frying made the banana bread cubes crispy and warm, paired with the banana pudding. But really, it was all about the fried banana bread. It was my favorite bite next to the tomahawk.

Overall, we had a fantastic meal here. I still haven’t stopped thinking about the tomahawk or the fried banana bread. We’ve been wanting to try the brunch out and will do so as soon as we have a free weekend. For those looking for New Year’s options, Searsucker Del Mar is doing a 4-Course New Year’s Eve dinner and will be serving Brunch on New Year’s Day. You can find more information on their website.

I was sad that such a big bone would go to waste and then Mr. K reminded me that we would be visiting my parent’s house in just a few days so we could bring the bone back to my dog Mochi.

The steak was incredibly flavorful and we savored every blissful bite. One of the best bites we’ve had all year.

If you really love steak, this dish is definitely worth considering next time there is a special occasion or you want to treat yourself or your loved one.

We asked to have the bone wrapped, which they did for us. The bone was so long it was almost as long as Mochi! She was so excited when I pulled it out for her–I’ve never seen her like this. Don’t worry, we didn’t let her have it all. But she really loved it and was not happy about us taking it away from her.

brussels & walnuts

For our sides, we got the brussels sprouts and macaroni and cheese. I loved the brussels sprouts. They were roasted and seasoned with a cider vinegar. I don’t usually like vinegar flavor in my foods, but this really worked for me. I ate almost the entire dish myself.

mac & cheese

Mr. K, of course, loved the macaroni and cheese. I enjoyed it as well, though could only handle a few bites after so much food. It was rich, cheesy, and the sour cream and chives helped to balance out the rich cheese sauce.

chocolate peanut butter tart

The chocolate peanut butter tart was quite decadent, paired with ice cream and caramel corn.

fried banana bread pudding

Let me repeat that: fried banana bread. This was life-changing. I can’t believe I haven’t had fried banana bread until this visit and now I want to make fried banana bread all the time. The frying made the banana bread cubes crispy and warm, paired with the banana pudding. But really, it was all about the fried banana bread. It was my favorite bite next to the tomahawk.

Overall, we had a fantastic meal here. I still haven’t stopped thinking about the tomahawk or the fried banana bread. We’ve been wanting to try the brunch out and will do so as soon as we have a free weekend. For those looking for New Year’s options, Searsucker Del Mar is doing a 4-Course New Year’s Eve dinner and will be serving Brunch on New Year’s Day. You can find more information on their website.

Searsucker Del Mar


Searsucker Del Mar is a restaurant by Chef Brian Malarkey, serving New American cuisine.

The restaurant has been on my to-do list for quite some time as we pass by it often and have heard good things. We were recently invited in for dinner and had an amazing meal.

calamari chili honey glaze / apples

We started our evening with some appetizers. I really enjoyed this calamari, with its sweet and tangy chili sauce.

tuna poke & shaved taro root radish / sriracha / cilantro

I have such a weakness for jar appetizers. We chose the tuna poke which was served with taro chips. It’s not a combination I’ve had before, but I enjoyed it. By itself, the poke sauce used to marinate the tuna was a little on the salty side, but it balanced out well when eaten with the taro chips.

tomato & burrata basil / olive oil / balsamic

Our server also brought this jar out for us to try and I’m so glad he did. The tomatoes were so sweet, the burrata was creamy and savory. I enjoyed every bite. I’ve said this before, but eating fresh tomatoes with burrata, basil and balsamic is one of my favorite things. Yes, this dish was simple, but it was done right. I’ve actually had several disappointing versions lately of this classic Italian dish at other restaurants due to poor tomatoes, low quality cheese, etc. So I was quite happy to taste this version which was executed so well.

36oz ribeye tomahawk

We were already getting full, so I didn’t think we could possibly handle such a big entree, but our server had been spot-on about every suggestion so far and he sold us on the description of Searsucker’s tomahawk steak. It’s quite large and meant for sharing. It is served with grilled vegetables and two sides of your choice.
