|Patty, Ryan and Larry Fulton|
Ryan, who was “Top Teen Chef” in San Diego when he was a senior at Clairemont High in 2004, emphasizes creative and made-from-scratch items like house-made corned beef and lamb pastrami. Online reviews rave about the shepherd’s pie and the Jamesons’-flavored bread pudding. Most entrees are only $10 and all prices include tax.
“Seeing his dreams come alive has been a great joy for us as his parents,” said Larry Fulton, Ryan’s father. “We are proud of what he has done and what he does every day.” Larry and Ryan’s mother Patty are at the restaurant daily, where Patty bakes and helps serve while Larry visits with guests.
The pub features over 150 varieties of beer from all over Europe and a nice selection of wines by the glass as well. Although Dan Diegos serves beer and wine, all ages are welcome to dine.
Just as important as providing a comfortable neighborhood café and pub is the work the Fultons have done in the community, helping schools and churches in their fundraising efforts. They have also been grateful to assist the Community Christian Service Agency and the Interfaith Shelter Network, among other charitable organizations, in their work to help out those less fortunate. Creating fun events like their holiday cookie classes for kids in the neighborhood has been a great joy for the family as members of the Clairemont/Bay Park community.
The restaurant is named for Larry and Patty’s late son Daniel, also a Clairemont High alumni. The logo, which at first glance resembles a shamrock, is actually a stylized “4B”, referring to the 4 brothers in the family. “In this way we share Daniel, our namesake, with our friends and family. We remember his part in our development as a family and as a business every day, and hope that our love carries through to our customers,” Larry explains. “We are proud and humbled by our success, and grateful to the community in which we live and work. Thanks to everybody who has shared our dream with us!”
Dan Diegos is located at 2415 Morena Blvd., San Diego Ca. 92110. They are closed Tuesdays.
