5 Great Outdoor Brunches Across the U.S.

4. Searsucker
San Diego Outdoor Brunch

Half the fun at Searsucker is the names of menu items and the conversations they inspire, says Chris Puffer, general manager and partner.

There's menu items such as "Sunday Bloody Sunday," "Monty Cristo Waffles," "Huevos Divorciados" and "Green Eggs and Ham."

"A lot of the names of the food and the descriptions are based on this being a social dining experience," Puffer says. "The guests have to ask the waiter about the food in order to get more information. We really think that helps enhance the guest experience. You can't just point to something and order and not acknowledge the waiter. We purposefully dumbed down the menu."

Searsucker is also fairly new -- it is going on its third brunch season. And it's one of the best people-watching spots in San Diego.

"We have an outdoor patio right there in heart of the Gaslamp at 5th and Market streets, one of the busiest streets," Puffer says. "It's great for watching street performances and for being right in the heart of the downtown area. If you're coming from out of town, you get to be part of San Diego with that outdoor experience."

But there's one more thing you should know about a brunch at Searsucker: the music. Puffer likes to refer to it as "a side of soul" with brunch. The restaurant has a disc jockey spinning in the restaurant's front window. This adds to the social dining experience, Puffer says.
