La Jolla Brewing Company on Zagat's "hottest restaurants" list
I've not yet visited this place - I'd rather drive to North Park from UTCland than drive into the Village on many days - but this seems entirely out of the blue. Is this Zagat's version of Wolfie's UT column?
It's pretty good -- been 5 or 6 times over the past couple of months with family. The kids like it a lot. They're brewing their own beer now and the IPAs I've tried are tasty. Lots of duck on the menu (duck eggrolls, duck mac & cheeese, duck confit, etc.). Nothing extraordinary in the food department. Burgers are good, but I would skip the ocean stew (cioppino) and the fries 3 ways -- not that great. I think Zagats was smoking something.
