PROPRIETOR & CHEF CHRISTIAN GOMEZ
Wet Stone, located at the base of a turn of the century building in the landmark barrio of Bankers hill opened its doors in 2008. Chef and proprietor, Christian Gomez, a local San Diegan of Latino and Asian descent, honed his skills in the many facets of food while marinating in the city of Angels eclectic borough of Venice beach, with stints in NYC and abroad.
The restaurant is an expression of his vision through the AMBIENCE of an elementally designed interior sprinkled with wood, metal, concrete, tropical plant life and a-moment-in-time images throughout. The FOOD treats you into a cornucopia of bold flavors and well executed dishes that are not only mouthwatering but are compiled and designed to compliment the experience. And SERVICE that is least invasive yet professional, that gets tied all together with a soundtrack of soft samba, cool jazz with a touch of electro-tango or ambient rythms.
Its best described as a sophisticated enclave reminiscent of Amsterdam meets Rio de Janeiro meets the lower East side.
Come and enjoy!
