Hello Betty charms with killer views and fresh eats

Go for the less-traditional at this Oceanside fish house

By Jenny Montgomery
The rooftop bar at Hello Betty Fish House in Oceanside is my new favorite place to gaze at the horizon and pretend that I totally saw the green flash—not to mention you’re perched right over Kelly McGillis’ house in Top Gun, so get ready to have your breath taken away.

Pillbox Tavern feels casual yet polished

Solana Beach hangout excels at wings and American classics

By Jenny Montgomery
I love the beach as much as the next SoCal native, and I yearn for the day I can move just a little closer to the sand. But if I hear “Margaritaville” one more time, I’m going to stick my own head in a blender to see what it will render.

At Land & Water Company, the unexpected shines next to the familiar

Sustainable seafood is a passion for this Carlsbad star

By Jenny Montgomery
Fear not, squeamish eaters. This splashy new Carlsbad restaurant (2978 Carlsbad Blvd.) has an incredibly fun menu to explore, with fresh offerings that manage to be comforting as well as creative.

Local Tap House is the hangout Oceanside needs

Creative gastropub food makes it more than your average bar

By Jenny Montgomery
“Revitalization” might not be the right word when talking about the various interesting eateries popping up around Oceanside, but there’s a brash energy to our county’s northernmost beach town that’s unlike its crunchier neighbors to the south.

Yoshino Japanese Deli serves up fresh, bright rolls and bowls

Fish so good, you should get to this Carlsbad shop early

By Jenny Montgomery
I’m finally coming clean with my ineptitude after a visit to Yoshino Japanese Deli in Carlsbad, where the fishy delights are so good, I can’t be expected to eat as slowly as I’d have to with chopsticks in hand.

Hungry Bear banishes bland sandwiches

Steak subs should lure you to this Escondido shop

By Jenny Montgomery
Then along comes the plentiful menu at Escondido’s Hungry Bear Sub Shop (302 W. El Norte Pkwy.) to smack me upside the head and tell me that I do love a good grinder, especially one that’s done as brilliantly as this North County star does them.

Beach Plum Kitchen: quality, charm and ice cream

Carlsbad outpost offers sweet and savory starts to your day

By Jenny Montgomery
My taste buds, if not the rest of my body, are pretty pumped about working their way through the menu at Beach Plum Kitchen, a polished new locale in Carlsbad (6971 El Camino Real, Suite 201).

The Curious Fork has passion, a few glitches

Solana Beach café and shop offers classes and Blue Bottle Coffee

By Jenny Montgomery
The Curious Fork (512 Via de la Valle, Suite 102) is a café, shop and cooking school all rolled into one.

Expansive menu at KC’s Tandoor worthy of exploration

Small Encinitas outpost is tops at the exotic and the more familiar

By Jenny Montgomery
For such a sprawling swath of real estate that encompasses what’s called “North County,” there’s a surprising dearth of decent Indian restaurants.

Café Cantata hits the sweet spot with good coffee

Caffeine is star at Del Mar café, while food is an afterthought

By Jenny Montgomery
Coffee is clearly where Café Cantata shines and where its passion lies. I loved the deliciously creamy cappuccino, topped with a thick head of glorious foam.
