Small Plates at Kensington Grill

We were glad that we came to Kensington Grill because it was exactly what we needed after a long week. The food was awesome and the service was just as good; our food was always piping hot and water glasses always full. We will definitely be going back to the Kensington Grill in the near future and I suggest that everyone give this neighborhood joint a try.

“The Morning After” Brunch

Dear bacon and eggs…
Let me start by saying that you know I love you. I eat you for breakfast in any way, shape, or form that I can on a pretty regular basis. But….recently I have strayed. And it was fabulous.

CHocoLaT for Brunch

While my wife and I were being seated we both noticed the Bruschette of Ricotta, pears, honey and black pepper being served at the table next to us. With just a glance I knew both my wife and I agreed on our starter (true love?).

Puesto: Mexican Street Food in Downtown La Jolla

Can anyone honestly tell me they know of someone who doesn’t love tacos?  (Un)fortunately for me, I happen to think most tacos taste about the same, but this is a good thing.  I usually know what I’m getting when I order, and I know I’m going to love it. When Puesto gave Savor SD the opportunity to stop by, meet owner Eric Adler, and have some tacos, I leapt at the chance, but I have to admit that I was a …

Introducing St. Germain’s Lady Chef Series

The Lady Chef series is not a cooking competition like Bravo’s Top Chef television series. It’s better than a cooking competition because the Lady Chefs chosen for this series have already proven themselves.

Burlap & Brian Malarkey:
A Culinary Adventure

When I met Brian, I am not going to lie; I was a little star-struck. He was friendly, approachable and possessed a magnetic energy. And, I do have to say, he’s very fashionable. Brian is into different fabrics, if you could not already tell (a la Searsucker downtown, Burlap in Carmel Valley, and the anticipated Herringbone in La Jolla)…

Restaurant Week in Review:
Market Del Mar

I didn’t want to get too excited. It was Restaurant Week and I was finally going to a restaurant I had been meaning to try for quite some time.  And then there are expectations. Once you know the name Carl Schroeder, you might have expectations too. He is the Executive Chef at Market and was honored with the James Beard award (the Oscars of the food world) and featured in the likes of Bon Apetit and Gourmet magazines, and the …

Restaurant Week in Review:
The Merk Italian Bistro

G: When describing our affinity towards food, we refuse to use the word “foodie”. We have known too many people who were self-described foodies and really all that meant was that they were snobby about food (i.e. if it’s not expensive, it’s can’t be good). K: I would consider us food lovers. We love all kinds of food – expensive, cheap, gourmet, casual, served with elegance or bought from a food truck. Our only requirement to enjoy food is that …

Restaurant Week in Review:
Market Del Mar Part ll

The anticipation for the meal was building.  My wife and I were headed to Market Del Mar with some friends to sample the highly regarded eatery’s take on San Diego Restaurant Week. Having done very little research about the establishment aside from their menu, I didn’t know what type of atmosphere to expect, especially after reading comments such as, “It’s away from the mainstream part of Del Mar… across from the polo fields…”  Polo fields?! Really?!  Rolling four deep in …
