Dining Out For Life San Diego update: Their First Time

Concept Two Seven Eight recently opened in Hillcrest and owner Jessica Fisher is excited and proud to be involved – and this dinner-only location will offer a lunch special on April 27th to help make even more of a difference.

Concept Two Seven Eight will offer their special Dining Out For Life® Lunch Box from noon-4pm, which includes a burger, fries and a local beer for $20. They will also offer a happy hour “bites” menu with tons of selections in the $5-10 range, with dinner starting at 5pm at 3687 Fifth Ave.

Bull & Grain is another Hillcrest restaurant new to Dining Out For Life®. They specialize in creating American food with worldly-inspired ingredients. 

“The atmosphere is trendy, the craft cocktails are out of this world,  Gourmet Chickenand the food is amazing!” said owner Simon Wolujewicz. “We make everything in-house, all the way down to our thick cut bacon, which takes 11 days to make. We also use that same bacon in our Bacon Infused Old Fashioned – an incredible cocktail.”

Wolujewicz is proud to be part of this important local effort to raise funds for HIV services and prevention efforts.

“Dining Out for Life is an integral part of raising awareness about AIDS/HIV, in San Diego, as well as all throughout the world,” he said. “One of the best parts of Dining Out for Life is that all of the funds generated in the community stays in the community. The funds go toward education, prevention, testing, counseling and other services. We are happy to be able to contribute to an organization that does so much to help.”
