MY FINAL THOUGHTS:
If any one thing stands out for me at Pueblo it's the hospitality you get as a guest here. The food is amazing yes, no doubts. But this was my 2nd visit since they opened. My last having been in late November last year for drinks and some apps with friends. This visit was solo and I was all about checking out the unique tacos and seafood they have on their menu. The owner Mark, new head Chef Eduardo and my server Marina were all amazing. Super kind, very tentative, eager to please. Marina knew the menu quite well and helped me navigate the ingredients used in the dishes I tried. Mark introduced himself as well and made sure I was taken care of which I was. Chef Eduardo and I spoke at length about what he is doing, how the menu has adapted, what he plans on coming out with and what makes the venue different. This guy is a blazing a unique trail all his own and even looks to network with other local chefs of both Baja and Mexican cuisines to help offer and obtain concepts that are soon to please the pallets of San Diegans everywhere. The venue alone is situated in a neat corner spot of PB just between Garnet and Grand. Super chill but modern, casual but classy, just the right feel for family dinner, business drinks or even a date night.
