“Farm-fresh ingredients served up with little fuss” is the ethos behind this casual cafeteria-style spot, now in Liberty Station, La Jolla, and downtown San Diego. All are very popular at lunch but the lines move quickly. Expect big salads like seared tuna Niçoise with quail egg, P. Balistreri salumi with kale, or grilled Thai octopus with green papaya. Naturally raised beef and chicken are roasted or grilled and then tucked into sandwiches or served as a dinner plate
with vegetables. Wine and house-made soups and desserts round out the menu.
