Election night food and drinks, a new sushi spot and more

Our weekly food-news round-up

By CityBeat Staff

With election night parties happening all over town, what’s one more drink and some chicken wings? If you’re Downtown tonight, The Commons is having a bi-partisan election party for all the ladies who voted today, though it’s safe to assume the gents won’t be far behind. The sports bar will be serving up “left wing” and “right wing” specials starting at 5 p.m. And over at West Coast Tavern in North Park, tonight only you can try out the Presidential Mule (Skyy citrus vodka, ginger beer, lime and bitters), Elephant in the Room (Wild Turkey 81, lime, bitters, ginger beer), the Obama Slammer (Wild Turkey, lemon juice, honey) or, if you must, the Mitt-Tini (Tanqueray and blue-cheese-stuff olives with a splash of irony). For more election-night specials, check out Keli Dailey's round-up in the U-T San Diego.

Last month, the blog Food Buzz SD reported on Michael Alves’ new Liberty Station restaurant, Roseville Cozinha. Alves, who’s chef and owner, will be cooking up Portuguese influenced seafood dishes and Neapolitan pizza pies. No word yet on when it’ll open this month, but Alves has already employed the help of his chef buddies on the new project, like Craig Jiminez, formerly at Craft & Commerce and currently at Henry’s Pub in the Gaslamp Quarter.   

Ogawashi, which means "handmade" in Japanese, is the slick, new Downtown sushi joint designed by Basile Studio (The Guild, RIP). Its grand-opening celebration happens all day (11 a.m. to 11 p.m.) on Saturday, Nov. 10. There will be free samples, and 25-percent off the entire menu of modern Asian dishes, sushi, craft beer and cocktails. If you can't make it, check out their happy hour, which runs Monday through Friday from 3 to 8 p.m. and on the weekends from noon to 7 p.m. 

Bali Hai's rolling out a new fall lunch menu and there's one item in particular that got our attention: a lobster bahn mi sandwich. CityBeat's huge fans of bahn mi, Vietnamese sandwiches that are usually made with grilled pork. Will lobster work? Consider us intrigued.
