- Use local seasonal products
- Use sustainably harvested seafoods and responsibly stewarded meats
- Rethink traditional Spanish tapas into a contemporary California context
The menu at ThirstyBear presents a contemporary and seasonal approach to traditional Spanish tapas. If you come into ThirstyBear on a regular basis, you’ve probably noticed that we change the menu frequently. This is because we utilize local and organic products as much as possible and try to minimize our carbon footprint by working with local farms and purveyors. By working with products that are in season, we are able to use ingredients at the peak of their flavor. However, starting with great product isn’t enough. We strive for a balance of textures, flavors and often a juxtaposition of temperature to create a greater impact than the ingredients would have individually. At ThirstyBear, we like to make food that tastes good, looks beautiful and is prepared responsibly.
