A cozy, romantic ambiance, unique South American dishes, and lesser-known wines continuously lure Bankers Hill locals to this neighborhood favorite. A hidden gem in the area, featuring a moderately priced menu of interesting, eclectic yet pleasing flavors. Best known for their sangria, Wet Stone is intimate, playing soft Latin music, an excellent place for a date night or a relaxing after-work gathering.
Caprese Salad ($8)
Chef/proprietor Christian Gomez is a San Diego native. He shows his love for Latin cuisine in fusions like this. Caprese salad drizzled with soy sauce and aji amarillo. The surprising taste of soy sauce only intensifies the berries and heat from the aji.
Pineapple and Prosciutto ($8)
A small, delightful bite with spicy aji panca. Aji panca, a Peruvian chili spice, is a mild, smoky, almost fruity. It compliments the saltiness and sweetness of the other ingredients in this dish.
Mi Parrilla ($16)
A flat iron steak, lamb sausage, achiote chicken breast with chimichurri and blue cheese crostini. A wonderful display of Argentine fare in America’s finest city.
Pleasantly large wine glasses is a another big mark in its favor. The sangria is a “must try” and available in carafes. To please the non-wine drinkers, Wet Stone also offers craft-style beer.
Expect a better-than-average Happy Hour.
