Venture to Little Italy for Kettner Exchange

Kettner Exchange has been the highly anticipated new restaurant in Little Italy all summer and it is now OPEN for business!  It officially brings the “cool” to a town filled with Italian restaurants and coffee shops.  Young twenty-somethings will feel right at home in this open and modern building.  However, the added decor from the 1930s will make any one, no matter the age, stand in awe of this superbly designed restaurant.

If you are unsure of the name, let’s clear that up.  “William Kettner was a Democratic Congressman representing the 11th district in the early 1900’s who, during his service, secured funds for the dredging of the San Diego Bay, the construction of the All American canal and a Panama-California Exposition (for which Balboa Park was built).”  Every time I look or sail on the bay, I will now think and pay honor to Mr. William Kettner.

If you’re planning a celebration, have guests in town, or perhaps need to impress a date, I highly recommend bringing them to this new San Diego staple.

All About Sublime Tavern in Del Mar

As a frequent visitor to Sublime Alehouse in San Marcos, I was thrilled for the arrival of their sister restaurant, Sublime Tavern, in Del Mar.  Now, even more San Diegans will be able to try their signature Mac ‘N Cheese that won me over from the very first bite of Gruyere goodness.

I was invited to check out the new spot where Tommy V’s and Market used to be.  It’s definitely a destination location, being right across from the polo fields, but parking is reasonable, the wine-list is extensive, the atmosphere is light and casual, and the menu is full of comfort foods that will leave your stomach full and happy.

As I mentioned before, I am a huge fan of the Mac N’ Cheese and think every single one of you would appreciate the pulled pork and caramelized onions in the Rapture.  Be sure to ask for a side of barbeque sauce.  It’s a perfect addition.  That being said, I have to admit that that is the only dish on the menu that I would ever order.  It’s why I came.  It’s what I crave.

This time I got a much more thorough experience.  It started off with a huge basket of Truffle Fries with four different aioli’s.   The fries are tossed in truffle oil, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. They were scrumptious alone, but I had fun trying to figure out which aioli was my favorite.  I think I ended up picking the garlic aioli….no, no, the sun-dried tomato aoili.  I don’t know.  I loved them all.

Next to the table was the Watermelon & Wild Arugula Salad, which scared me initially.  I’m not a fan of arugula or watermelon, but the combination was quite surprising and it actually worked.  The sweetness of the watermelon cut down the bitterness of the arugula, and the combination of  feta, tomato, cucumber, and a sweet basil vinaigrette made for a perfectly refreshing salad on a hot summer afternoon.

Hold on to your seats, there are two more dishes!
