I've got to tell ya, I've been pretty damn impressed with Quad Alehouse since it opened a few weeks back. After a long period of renovation, Gaslamp Tavern finally re-opened, and during the process, they converted the 3rd floor of their building into Quad.

The cuisine of Quad is mostly slow-cooked BBQ. They offer 5 different proteins (brisket, pork, turkey, lamb, and chicken) with a choice of preparations (sandwich, salad, plate. And of course, there are sides. In the times I've been there, I've had 4 of the meats...all as plates. And so far, I haven't been disappointed.

The best of the group thus far has been the pork. It's tender, moist, and flavorful. Quad has an assortment of house-made sauces available on the side, and the steak sauce is a great compliment.

There is also a modest array of side dishes. My advice here...get the mac and cheese. M&C is one of those dishes that is easy enough to make, but difficult to master. Quad's offering is a no-frills plate that focuses on quality. The noodles are large elbows and you really get the quality of the cheese - elegant in its simplicity but bold in flavor.

Quad also has a great craft beer selection, offering many San Diego classics and a few more that are harder to find.

The staff is really friendly and really passionate about this new little spot.

I rarely get excited about new restaurants that open up in the Gaslamp Quarter, but Quad is a place where I could see myself becoming a regular. Check it out if you get the chance.
