Chef-partner Deborah Scott infuses her contemporary Southwestern cuisine with inspirations from Mexico to Alaska at this fun, upbeat restaurant. The broad terrace gets cool breezes—which do nothing to moderate the chilies that heat dishes such as a stacked beet salad, pecan-crusted trout, and salmon roasted on a wooden plank. Creative desserts like the coconut crème brûlée is so generous in size that it can easily satisfy two. The vibe is quieter during Sunday brunch,
but the morning entrées, which include frittatas, chocolate bacon pancakes, and tamales with caramelized onions, are excellent.

Not my favorite of the Cohn group. I've given this place 3 tries and I still can't find something that wows me. Heavily spiced, not presented well, tough meat. Go to the Prado at Balboa Park instead.

Sit in the bar before 7:00pm and ask for the bar dining menu. Great "small plates" including mussels, salmon bruchetta, salad... All are ample and delicious and much less expensive than off the regular menu. Great people watching by the door and fine service. Hip decor. Order it all before 7:00 though and ask them to space the service. Regular menu is excellent as well.
