From the beginning, my entire mission for Cow by Bear has been to bring human beings together over exceptional food, drink and atmosphere. There’s nothing that brings me more joy than helping spark a new friendship or connection. (Okay, snatching a 20-pound steelhead out of the Hoh River brings me more joy but absolutely nothing else).

As Cow by Bear has grown, from six guests every Saturday evening to the ten guests we currently serve each Thursday-Saturday for dinner and Sunday for brunch, this mission has only intensified and served as the guiding light for any changes made to our experiences.

It’s in that spirit that I’m happy to announce that beginning December service, we’ll be able to offer 14 seats to our dinners and brunch. Fourteen has always been the magic number in my mind, even back at the beginning when I was serving 6 guests inside my apartment. It enables us to bring more people together while still remaining intimate, and will allow us to operate much more effectively, providing a better all around experience for our guests. Our special event and themed dinners will still vary in size, but it’s my intent to stay at 14 guests as our sweet spot for all of our regularly scheduled dinners and brunch moving forward. 

An additional change we’ll be making starting January 1, 2017 is a price increase from $150 per person to $175 per person. This is the first price increase since 2014, and necessary to not only continue providing the type of experience our guests expect but to also make enhancements that will keep what we do fresh and unique. We’ve made many investments over the past several months to provide a better experience, and combined with increased costs from our partners it is essential for us to make this adjustment. We serve only the highest quality food and drink we can get our hands on and go to great lengths to keep the cost for our guests the absolute lowest they can be. I’m very sensitive to price, as I know we’re already on the high end in San Diego, and appreciate your understanding on this matter. Reservations made on our site between now and December 31 will remain priced at $150 per person.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly at bear@cowbybear.com if you have any questions, or if you’d simply like to be best friends. Hope to see you soon!
