Box’d is a bike-friendly, sunny place to lounge

Carlsbad shipping-container’s food is fine; it’s the picnic atmosphere that’s a winner

By Jenny Montgomery
Box'd has taken over the corner of State Street and Carlsbad Village Drive (430 Carlsbad Village Drive). It's not so much a restaurant as a shipping container and a large patch of soft, artificial turf.

Spring’s in bloom at Iris Food & Spirits

Great food and dangerous cocktails, perched on a lagoon in southern Del Mar

By Jenny Montgomery
Iris occupies a busy little twist of residential road at the southern end of Del Mar (2334 Carmel Valley Road); if it didn't sit just west of Interstate 5, we'd call it Carmel Valley.

Dog House Diner brings tasty dogs to the Depot

Fries are perfect, and the menu has a frank for everyone in this Encinitas parking lot

By Jenny Montgomery

Chandler’s has a great location, but that’s about it

Prices are too high and food too mediocre at Carlsbad restaurant

By Jenny Montgomery
I had such high hopes for Chandler's Restaurant and Lounge. There it sits, facing the bright, blue ocean, separated from the sand by a particularly fast section of Highway 101.

Oink and Moo is a tasty little Fallbrook barbecue joint

Oink and Moo is a tasty little Fallbrook barbecue joint

By Jenny Montgomery
 You don’t need me to tell you that Fallbrook, way up in the northern reaches of the county, isn’t exactly where the foodies flock.

Vincent’s in Escondido is an outpost of French charm

Meditate on the perfection of onion soup

By Jenny Montgomery
Maybe the battle over the thermostat in our too-cold-for-me house has addled my brain, but I have been pondering the beauty of French onion soup lately. Is it the best soup ever?

Leucadia’s Pandora’s Pizza veers ‘outside the box’

Duck confit, margherita pizzas are tasty, if far from perfect

By Jenny Montgomery
I’ve never been one of the cool kids. Maybe it’s the old lady trapped inside my sort-of-still-young body, but I like my hangouts mellow and friendly and far from “the scene,” whatever that is.

Bessie’s 1929 Café has easy, vintage charm

Oceanside restaurant’ serves up simple breakfasts and monster burgers

By Jenny Montgomery
I feel like I’m on a perpetual search for a non-gourmet breakfast place that churns out food that’s a bit more than mediocre. That’s not a high bar, and yet, somehow, my snooty standards are rarely met.
