1 | That’s Amore Best Restaurant North County

Amici’s Ristobar

Amici’s Ristobar is bringing authentic Italian to the ‘burbs. Love the upscale vibe and their innovative cocktails. Homemade pasta and pizza are the best, but the kale salad with salmon is the only thing I will forsake carbs for!

2 | Off to the Market

Lazy Acres market

Not technically a “restaurant,” but I eat at Lazy Acres market at least a few times a week. Everyone loves the poke bar, but the hot bar is where it’s at—especially when they feature the authentic homemade Indian food.

3 | It’s All Good Best Restaurant North County

Love Good On Ya Organic Eatery

Love Good On Ya Organic Eatery—healthy, tasty and not too “granola” for my meat-eating friends. Dinners are candlelit and cozy with fantastic wine or hard booch and so many choices—it’s best to share.

4 | Mix and Match

Napizza | Culture Brewing Co. | La Paloma

Grab a slice of Roman-style pizza from Napizza and munch on it at Culture Brewing Co. with a pint of Wildflower IPA. Then head down to La Paloma for a retro movie!

5 | Word on the Street Best Restaurant North County

Flying Pig

South O is for sure our favorite date night spot these days and Flying Pig is always our first stop. Great neighborhood feel—order whatever they have on special, no questions asked.

6 | Dija Vu

Dija Mara

Go for the graffiti art, A Tribe Called Quest on the sound system and an industrial vibe, but the Southeast Asian street food at Dija Mara keeps us coming back!
