Romesco is a Mexican-Mediterranean fusion restaurant and tapas bar nestled next to a neighborhood grocery store in Bonita. Romantic couples, old friends, businesspeople and children on their best behavior gather inside this elegant, yet unassuming bistro for one reason, the food. The vast and varying menu of Romesco’s offerings is the genius of Tijuana-born head chef and Hispanic food celebrity Javier Plascencia. Plascencia set out to bring a touch of Baja to cuisine from the Southern European coast. The WHOLE southern coast; Greek, Italian, French, Spanish and Portuguese dishes are done to perfection with a Mexican twist.…Read more

I’ve never heard of it before, but it seemed like a nice place, so we decided to give it a try.…Read more
The second Restaurant Week preview! La Gran Terraza is located on the campus of University of San Diego. Who knew this nice venue was right up the hill at USD all this time? It looks like its been open since 2009 so maybe they just like to keep the gem hidden so it doesn’t get overcrowded.
As you can see the Restaurant Week menu online doesn’t list all the dishes available in person. Lucky us!
The restaurant features a wide open space with a cozy amount of room between tables. It felt like a grand ballroom in a fancy hotel, except a little more relaxed and casual since we were on campus after all.…Read more
