Lounging with wine and posh eats at Crush

Solana Beach spot offers awesome polenta and tasty budino

By Jenny Montgomery
Even in late fall, one menu special was the panzanella salad filled with explosively juicy tomatoes the color of sunshine and hunks of ciabatta that soaked up the oily dressing without turning into limp sponges of dough.

Blue-cheese-covered chips and tasty deviled eggs top the offerings

By Jenny Montgomery
Leroy’s Kitchen & Lounge is no edgy addition to the Coronado scene, but it’s cool and friendly and another enthusiastic player in the farm-to-table movement.

Luc’s Bistro is a strip-mall gem

Poway spot serves up classy comfort food

By Jenny Montgomery
I was impressed with both the traditional “comfort food” offerings on the menu, as well as the unique creations; there’s nothing better than creativity in a strip-mall eatery.

Mignon Pho adds hipness to Kearny Mesa

Lemongrass fries and healing soup are menu standouts

By Jenny Montgomery
Though pho is certainly the house specialty, the menu is a playground of things to try. I’m sorry, gentle readers, that in my pregnant condition I couldn’t stomach the thought of trying the fried frogs legs or skewered chicken hearts, but they are there, and based on everything else I ate, I bet they’re tasty.

Friendly Andiamo serves up a stinky, decadent gnocchi

The neighborhood restaurant's chewy potato dumplings covered in gorgonzola are worth the trip to Tierrasanta

By Jenny Montgomery
Andiamo is perched in that sweet middle spot, with the gracious (if not at all hip or trendy), welcoming attitude of a neighborhood restaurant and behind-the-line food know-how that offers you something more than vague food smothered in mozzarella.

Breakfast at Pacifica Breeze Cafe

Del Mar spot offers million-dollar people watching and a breakfast value

By Jenny Montgomery
Order your food and get your own drinks at the counter, but settle in to relax and enjoy the ocean view while waiting for the friendly PBC crew to bring you your food.

T2 Fusion expands Tita’s Filipino-food empire

Giving a hearty thumbs up to Pinoy Pride

By Jenny Montgomery
I never pass up pancit, and neither should you, particularly if you like your noodles salty, cooked to death and seasoned with broth, vegetables and your choice of meat. This is comfort food that will give any uppity take on mac ’n’ cheese a run for its money.

Bootlegger joins the San Diego scene

Black-eyed peas and beer at yet another gastropub

By Jenny Montgomery
There are days when it seems we’ve reached the saturation point in this whole gastropub phase. But then another newbie joins the scene; I scan the menu, I’m intrigued, and, before I know it, I’m buried under a pile of wacko snacks.

Chef Matt Gordon’s new restaurant embraces the Encinitas vibe

Solace & The Moonlight Lounge moves into Encinitas

By Jenny Montgomery
They’re doing some great things with seafood, which makes sense considering you could easily throw a picky patron and hit the ocean just a few blocks away.
