Contemporary American | Little Italy, San Diego

One of the most amazing meals I have had. Our group did not know what to expect and were blown away by the dishes and the beers paired with each one. I appreciate the prix fixe menu but that you could order individual dishes as well instead of doing all four courses. The waitress was very knowledgable and friendly. The chef was just outstanding. This is serious fine dining! More

We had the Chef's tasting menu. It was truly superb. We've eaten at some of the best in LA, NYC and St. Helena, and this meal compared favorably. Creative use of textures and taste without overuse of butter and garlic. Several of the dishes were exquisite. Very pricey. Four people with almost no wine was $1300 with tip. More
