Fodor's Expert Review The Little Lion

$$ Ocean Beach Modern American Fodor's Choice

Amid surf shacks and hippie beach bars, this restaurant perched on stunning Sunset Cliffs feels like a hidden European bistro. The sisters who run the show come from a long line of successful local restaurateurs and have brought their passed-down expertise to the simple, healthy menu and thoughtful service. Entrées include plant-based tacos, Baja shrimp in garlic butter, and grilled cheese with honey, Dijon, and Brie. Their morning menu features chia seed puddings and baked eggs, which are a welcome contrast to the typical indulgent brunch fare.
