PACIFIC BEACH— JDRN, Tower23 hotel's beach-adjacent restaurant, has introduced a fresh dinner and dessert menu courtesy of newly-appointed executive chef Danilo Tangalin. Tangalin's new lineup includes a take on foie gras with peanuts, berry jam and biscuits and a mix of meat and seafood, from a 14 ounce ribeye to a half-chicken or the catch of the day, which can be customized with a variety of rubs, sauces and sides. On the sweet side, there's a pistachio parfait that layers cake with rhubarb-strawberry compote, frozen yogurt, caramel and granola and the Macadamia Joy, which combines white and dark chocolate, coconut and roasted banana ice cream.
