Savoring the Seaside

Posted on May 6, 2017

From Solana Beach north to Oceanside, coastal communities are teeming with both noteworthy and brand new dining options. Restaurants like our cover pick, Pacific Coast Grill in Cardiff, Leucadia’s hidden hotspot The Lanai, and the new Open House in Encinitas all operate with an appreciation of the ocean and its abundant offerings. These eateries make the most of the sea’s bounty and celebrate the best of coastal living.
