San Diego/Rancho Bernardo restaurants

  • k

Will be in San Diego for Thanksgiving and have searched the past boards for suggestions for Italian and Chinese restaurants back to a year ago, but haven't seen anything in the Rancho Bernardo/Poway area. We could also be in the La Jolla area at some time and need suggestions. I have searched the Rancho Bernardo area before and not found anything (last Fall), but perhaps something new has opened? A place that serves a decent steak would also be good. Any take-out Chinese places with good food? (in the RB area) Price no object. I would like to go to Georges at the Beach if it's not too formal and if we're in the area. I know the area restrictions make this request difficult but my son hates to hit the freeways on the weekends. He likes Italian, Chinese, steaks & good Mexican.

  1. I'm sorry this is a bit late for your trip but in Rancho Bernardo there are two gems: El Bizcocho (inside the Inn at Rancho Bernardo), Bernard O's (run by the ex-chef at the RB inn.) While we like George's at the Cove, we adore Tapenade in La Jolla. Superb food.

      Thank you for the recommendations. I have made a note of them for my next visit to S.D.

        Post a note before you come and I'll try to add some other solid places. If you're into wine, a place in Pacific Beach called Thee Bungalow has a superb list reasonably priced, and great food at good prices. It's one of our long time favorites. But for a splurge evening, it's Tapenade without question.
