Romesco

As a New Yorker expose details, chef Javier Plascencia believes in the transformative power of food. The piece describes how in Tijuana, he strove to redefine the city's culinary paradigm with his gourmet food, made exclusively with, as he says, materia prima, or ingredients sourced strictly within 120 miles of the restaurant. He did it, too. In the process, he gained the respect and business of famed chef Anthony Bourdain. After moving to the U.S., he opened Romesco using the same cooking philosophies he prescribed to south of the border, and was recently hailed by Zagat for his skill and innovation and named Chef of the Year by San Diego Eater.

Named Best Mexican restaurant and one of the Top 10 best restaurants by San Diego Magazine Romesco's culinary slate is solidly grounded in Mexican cuisine, but Chef Plascencia has accented his dishes with Mediterranean flavors and cooking techniques. The cuisine is derived from all corners of the globe, from traditional tapas to fettuccini alfredo and baja California lobster ravioli. The carefully selected vintages on the wine list pair with the menu's diverse flavors, especially on Wednesdays when the restaurant also serves Italian dishes with half off wine bottles. On Friday and Saturday, the restaurant stays open late to accommodate night owls, serving tapas until 11:30 and, on every last Saturday of the month, hosting live flamenco music. From 3-7, there are also happy hours—named after what a round trip to the moon will be like in 2060.
