About Us & Events

about us

We are Encontro—from the verb “Encontrar” – “To meet, to find, or to discover”. Conceived to offer a new vision for craft beer & food in North Park. Seasonal, chef-driven dishes served in a unique Paul Basile-designed space. Where cool coexists with quickness and convenience.
