We went to a couple of breweries in Carlsbad this afternoon (Culver Brewing was EXCEPTIONAL) and then on to The Wrench and The Rodent for dinner. The name isn't on the building front (Ummmm, probably a good idea) it just says "Seabasstropub", which may be a better idea, but still raises questions. The eclectic nature of the place continues as, for what's essentially a sushi place, it had not a single Asian face anywhere to be seen.
But...... the food was REALLY good. We started with a Ceviche 'flight' of 3 small rsmmekins of different fish accompanied by multi-colored pork rinds (I think). Then came a plate of seared albacore sashimi and local yellowtail sashimi along with a Hedgehog roll. A couple of yellowtail Nigiri finished the meal (that's the usual dessert for us at sushi places).
Happy to say this place is only about 40 minutes from our home in South OC, except on weekends when drive times basically double. We do North County breweries frequently so I'm sure we'll be back.
