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.

Eclectic eats at Empire House

Tacos and burgers are given a tasty twist at homey and hip new Hillcrest spot

By Jenny Montgomery
I immediately liked the feeling of walking into the dusky, charcoal walls of Empire House. It conjures a groovy old house with mismatched chairs, some of which reminded me of sitting in a junior-high auditorium.

Pink Noodle brings Thai sweetness to Hillcrest

Tasty food and a cutesy vibe make a lovely combination

By Jenny Montgomery
Not to be confused with other outposts of pink (see: Berry, Taco), Pink Noodle in Hillcrest is the face-lifted Thai restaurant formerly known as Kitima.

Red Marlin serves deliciously democratic food

The blackened Mahi-Mahi was particularly good at this Mission Bay restaurant

By Jenny Montgomery
One of the bonuses of being pregnant—once you’re through the “all food is disgusting” phase—is the world being mostly supportive of your occasionally (OK, fine, frequently) piggish eating “needs.” “Listen to your body!” they reassure. “The baby will tell you what it needs!”

Warm service and flavors beckon at Alforon

When you get flat-bread fever, this Lebanese eatery is the cure

By Jenny Montgomery
The word that comes to mind when I think about the Lebanese food served at Alforon is “warmth.” Yes, you can certainly opt for items that’ll put some heat on your tongue, but I’m referring to the warmth of exotic spices like sumac and wild thyme.

Morning Star

Brunch is now being served at a favorite San Diego nightspot

By Jenny Montgomery
I’m particularly delighted that one of the coolest kids on the dining block has begun serving the meal that hits the sweet spot between too early and too boring. Starlite—they of the hexagonal door and killer cocktails on India Street—began dishing up waffles and eggs in May, but with its signature sophisticated panache.

Less than perfect Union

North County’s newest gastropub is flawed, but worth watching

After watching months of construction, I’m now hearing a lot of chatter about Union Kitchen & Tap in Encinitas, which finally opened in May.
