The patio power of Rustic Root

Dining on rooftops in the Gaslamp Quarter

Location, location—elevation. It's been a few months since Rustic Root (535 Fifth Ave.) opened downtown in the space limped out of by Marble Room. The first-floor restaurant seems to be doing okay

It’s tough to have a take on Punjabi Tandoor

Unique business park eats in Miramar light industrial hell

Sports commentator Jim Rome has the catchphrase "Have a take and don't suck."  But when it comes to Punjabi Tandoor (9235 Activity Road, Suite 111) in Miramar, it's strangely difficult to form a definitive take.
