2 0 1 1 The 2011 Readers Choice Award winners were selected by La Jolla Village News readers

La Jolla’s Top Picks of 2011 La Jolla may be a dining hot spot for tourists from all over the world, but more importantly, it’s a top-notch place of recreation for La Jollans — and lucky for us, there are some amazing things going on in the restaurant world right here in our own backyard. This list of restaurants represents locals’ favorites of more than 50 categories. We asked you to tell us your top picks, and we tallied up hundreds of ballots over the course of several months to not only provide you with this dining guide, but to honor the local businesses who are going above and beyond to serve you and make your community the best in the world. To compliment this section, we have also written features on several local businesses, from caterers to creators of fine cuisine, that

are really putting La Jolla on the map when it comes to food. The La Jolla Village News thanks the readers who took the time to single out the best of the best, and we also thank the winners of this year’s Readers Choice Awards for doing what they do so well. When you visit your favorite restaurant, or when you see a local business proudly displaying its Readers Choice Award, take a moment to tell the owner or manager that you appreciate what they do — they deserve it!

Congratulations! Claire Harlin Editor, La Jolla Village News

George’s at the Cove

Prepkitchen

George’s at the Cove has been in La Jolla since 1984, but there’s no sign that it seeks to rest on its laurels. The exceptional dining experiences are no accident — this restaurant has three extraordinary on-site restaurants dedicated to providing guests with the best food and service possible. Guests can either opt for California modern or a more casual, bistro dining experience at George’s Bar, complete with an outdoor patio. For a spectacular view of the ocean, head upstairs to the ocean terrace.

Prepkitchen will make a regular out of you. This cozy, shoebox bistro offers gourmet food to take home or back to the office, as well as a patio café to lounge outside with a glass of micro beer and a platter of house-cured meats and French cheeses. A spin-off of Whisknladle, the small kitchen is geared toward whipping up creative meals out of produce from local farms. People get stuck on their favorite dishes at Prepkitchen and so tend to revisit time and time again to rotate through the menu to savor more of the dishes. And, at times, it may be apt to just pop in for a side of sautéed greens in garlic oil or to relish a side of the shrimp salad.

The Cottage The Cottage is a quintessential La Jolla destination beloved by locals, tourists, the young, the old, regulars and newcomers alike. Set in the historic “Columbine” cottage built in the early 1900s, The Cottage serves up an exceptional breakfast and lunch on a sun-drenched patio behind a white picket fence. Its gourmet omelets, stuffed French toast, health-crazed muffins and trademark granola are memorable and worth the weekend wait, which is sweetened by the coffee and cake samples offered to those milling on the sidewalk waiting for a table. In the summer, the restaurant stays open for dinner. The Cottage is also available for rent for parties and receptions year-round. The Cottage 7702 Fay Ave. 454-8409 www.cottagelajolla.com

The Mediterranean Room serves dishes from its namesake region in the recently renovated dining room or open-air patio overlooking the sweeping blue Pacific Ocean for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In the evening, the mahogany Whaling Bar grills steaks in an oldworld seaside atmosphere complete with harpoons, lanterns, pewter candleholders and antique wooden shutters. Then there’s the exclusive Sky Room on the tenth floor that may offer the most stunning, panoramic view of the ocean in La Jolla. A small kitchen, literally a hole-in-the-wall, prepares dinner for the 11 tables in the intimate dining room.

Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza Families with discerning taste should count on Sammy’s pizza for their family night out. Patrons clearly support Sammy’s mission to mix flavor with freshness in its pizza. Forget the boring cheese and pepperoni of old— Sammy’s redefines the genre with pies such as artichoke and homemade sauce, five cheeses or a salad pizza comprising of organic arugula, pear and prosciutto. How about soups like Lobster Bisque and Kobe Beef Chili; not what you’d expect from a typical pizza place. Sammy’s offers a more simplified menu for the kids.

Voted Most Romantic

The Marine Room When The Marine Room opened at its current location, Franklin Roosevelt had just been elected to his third term as president. That pretty much makes The Marine Room the oldest San Diego restaurant still owned and operated by its founders in its original location. Executive Chef Bernard Guillas uses all that history to his best advantage — he’s got a lot to draw from as he travels the world in search of the finest cuisine for The Marine Room’s legion of customers.

Ponte Winery

Nine-Ten Nine-Ten is the place to go to stimulate your taste buds and expand your appreciation of the culinary art.

Nine-Ten boasts a wellbalanced, extensive and award-winning wine cellar. The list is a carefully selected excursion of local and global vineyards recognized with an Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator magazine. The restaurant is not just about fine dining by night. Nine-Ten also serves breakfast and lunch, and patrons are welcome to stop by for a casual bar-side panini.

Barfly in La Jolla was created by a couple of entrepreneurs who wanted to start a place that’s a cut above the normal. Although they are known in the Village for their eclectic menu, top flight DJs and dancing, their “$4@4” Happy Hour is what caught the attention of Village News readers. From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, Barfly offers $4 appetizers, wines, beers and well drinks, in a fun and funky atmosphere. And we’re not talking about the usual pub-grub either (although hot wings and nachos are available); fish tacos, avocado rolls, caprese salad, bruschetta and hummus falafel are offered. 

It’s not difficult to understand why this warehouse of alcohol has grown popular. It sells every brand and region of alcohol desired. There are thousands of bottles of wine, beer and spirits on these shelves. What to choose is the only problem. Browsing the company website may help out the wandering shopper. Rating agencies give their top picks for the beer, wine and spirits. Kegs are also sold for parties.

Meats, seafood and vegetables are marinated and simmered over mesquite coals and served on skewers or over basmati rice with lavash bread and a green salad. The Baba Ghanosh, taboulee, hummus and Greek salad are all worth a mention. Finish the meal with a thimble-size cup of Turkish coffee.

Girard Gourmet For the past two decades, La Jolla residents, office workers and tourists have refreshed themselves at the midday hour by indulging in the made-from-scratch sandwiches, soups and hot platters at Girard Gourmet. The line wraps around the bistro but moves swiftly since the mom-and-pop store has perfected the art of sandwich-making. The sandwich begins with the homemade bread (grain or baguette). Our recommendation is the chicken curry salad with chutney or the salmon lox with cream cheese and capers. The lamb stew, lasagna and spinach and cheese quiche are also delicious. The small store is a feast  for the eyes with its array of specially designed cookies and Belgian-style cakes. Girard Gourmet 7837 Girard Ave. 454-3321 www.girardgourmet.com
