Currant Restaurant, one of the stops along Bite San Diego food tour, is a modernized version of a classic French bistro. Here you will find the essence of French cuisine combined with American ingenuity and soul.
Currant fills a much needed niche: comfortable yet upscale dining. Currant introduces the option to relax, sip wine and dine on sophisticated flavors – creating an environment where culinary quality, class, and comfort collide.
Currant Brasserie lives on the ground floor of an architectural beauty – downtown San Diego historical landmark renovated in 2006 to become San Diego’s Sofia Hotel. With dual entrances from West Broadway and the Sofia lobby, Currant attracts hotel guests, downtown 9-to-5ers, and passer-bys.
Classic checkered tile, chandeliers, plush sofas, antique seating, marble-topped tables, soft lighting, and beautiful artwork create the brilliance of the restaurant and lounge.
