Just off the 15 freeway on Activity Road in Mira Mesa, Punjabi Tandoor offers a taste of India at a great value. It’s hidden away in an industrial area of office suites, so there is plenty of available parking at any time of day. Chicken, lamb and vegetable curries are their hallmark, as well as their use of a traditional Indian tandoor. The most popular of their curry dishes is the Chicken Tikka Masala, a boneless piece of chicken breast, cooked in a clay oven and then marinated in a delectable curry sauce. These stews also pair nicely with their garlic naan or their paratha, an Indian bread often stuffed with potato, cauliflower or cheese. The portions are generous and the setting is casual, making it a favorite among locals.
By picking fish caught from the Chesapeake Bay, the Pacific, and the tropics, Edge of the Ranch, formerly known as Nugent’s Firegrille, gives its menu the depth and variety it needs to reflect classic American culinary sensibilities without growing stale or predictable. The chef mixes up the menu with choices such as line-caught swordfish, organic-fed salmon, and baked Maine lobster. Edge of the Ranch supports sustainable-fishing methods while offering guests the healthiest seafood possible. Alongside the fresh fish, the staff also fire grills Angus steaks—such as filet mignon and flat iron—and all of the eatery’s fare can be paired with draft beers, signature martinis, fine wines, and sea shanties.

California is home to a rich ecosystem of farmers, winemakers, and fisherfolk, and Catch Seafood & Sushi takes inspiration from those resources. Drawing on wild-caught, sustainable sources, the chefs craft entrees that are rooted in Californian cuisine and inspired by international menus. There's classic fish tacos in salsa fresca and a housemade yogurt sauce, and a hearty swordfish club sandwich with lemon caper aioli. There's blackened mahi mahi with a spicy beurre blanc and a lemongrass-crusted salmon in Thai curry. And there's original sushi rolls such as the 007, with spicy tuna, sprouts, and green onions. Catch doesn't just serve the sea's bounty but makes withdrawals from the Earth's banks as well: the filet mignon is complemented by a garlic compound butter, and the vegetarian Stack comes with portobello, eggplant, zucchini, and roasted bell peppers.
Fifteen years ago, Chef George graduated from the San Diego Culinary Institute and immediately unleashed his formal cooking skills on favorite family recipes. Today, he and his wife Julie Lopez—daughter of the restaurant’s former owner David Agosto—outfit the Bucket with just-caught salmon, ahi tuna, and oysters. In the kitchen, Chef George prepares dishes such as fish tacos, tilapia po'boys, and plates of the day's catch, all reflecting his own individuality as a chef and a catfish juggler.
