Apologies for the lack of light this time around. We ate a lot later than the last meal we had and the sun was nowhere to be found. Michael and I didn’t order this drink duo but we had to get a picture of it. As we are not huge drinkers we let them handle the fancy drink.…Read more
Our favorite French Patisserie, Le Parfait Paris, has finally unveiled it’s newest storefront in the heart of downtown San Diego. It’s been a special project in the works for the past year or so, but I assure you the wait has been well worth it. Darren and I recently went to checkout the new location and definitely were not disappointed. The new location is stunning. With clean lines, colorful delights, and tall windows, the space couldn’t be more inviting. They are also open late on weekends!
We were greeted with some classic delights, as well as some new ones too. …Read more
Darren and I recently joined a San Diego Media dinner hosted by the Kona Kai Resort on Shelter Island. The Kona Kai recently completed a $22 million overhaul of the resort and revamped their flagship restaurant, Vessel. Vessel includes a 360-degree bar with sweeping views of San Diego’s beautiful bay front. The interior has been brushed with a vibrant sea foam green against distressed wood throughout.

As a native Southern Californian who has traveled and lived abroad in Europe, Chef Roy brings years of diverse experience and inspiration to his food and does his best to share that gift with this patrons.…Read more
Happy belated Halloween! Hope you all had a ghoulishly good time. I can’t believe it is already November. You know what that means right? Thanksgiving is right around the corner, woohoo!
Anyhow, Raglan Public House is about a block southwest from Newport Ave. and Hodad’s in Ocean Beach. A friend of mine was in town and since the line for Hodad’s was as long as it usually is, we decided to venture out and try something different. They have a small eating area around the corner and the dining area has large windows open to the elements of OB.…Read more
Josefas Cocina Mexicana opened about a month ago and resides right on Prospect Street in La Jolla. This would mark the first time we had Mexican food in La Jolla.
It sits atop Richard Walker’s Pancake House on the second floor, next to Iberico, which is also owned by the same restaurant group as Josefas.
The restaurant boasts a patio outside, perfect to enjoy all of the sights and scenery La Jolla has to offer. There is also a spacious open indoor dining area.
The seating and decor is simple and fresh, while playing up to the Mexican theme throughout.…Read more
