Currant, San Diego, CA

140 West Broadway
San Diego, CA 92101
(619) 702-6309

Built like a French Brasserie, Currant took the best parts of a French Restaurant and mixed it with the awesomeness of an American trendy joint. The happy hour is from 4-7 everyday, which includes $5 dollar wines and mixed drinks and $3 beers. The happy hour food menu is fantastic, with most things being under $5. We had some tempura green beans with wasabi mustard, a croque monsieur, and some calamari provencial, which was quite spicy and amazing. They have a $5 burger which looks macalicious and a wide array of boozes. The interior is trendy urban lounge with velour upholstery. The beer selection kinda sucks (Kona Lager, Bud and Becks Light...who comes up with this shit), but the passionfruit caipirinha is to die for (not as gay as it sounds). They also have absinthe served traditionally (a little pricey, but well worth it).
