I am not enthusiastic about ordering off price fixe menus because I’m quite adventurous with food and price fixe menus tend to play it safe, but I was actually impressed with West Restaurant’s Dine Out Menu ($38 for 3 courses). As usual the cocktails were stellar and the food was very good.
The menu I had was the Chef’s Tasting Menu which I enjoyed, but I was hoping to try more of his vegetarian items. Chef Foshee’s cooking style is very natural, delicate and light. It was creative and very progressive in thought. This is a continuation of California Modern – Chef’s Tasting Menu (Part 2/3).
San Diego is more tacos, burgers and gastropub than it is truffles, steak and white tablecloth, but that is not to say it doesn’t have a sophisticated market to feed. I came to California Modern at George’s on the Cove for Chef’s Tasting Menu which features modern Californian cuisine. Part 1/3.
My hands were bloody greasy after this meal… well no blood, just grease. I was prepared though. When “Joe Beef” is featured on the menu I’m expecting to get my protein intake for the month and enough calories for a family of four. It was exactly as I imagined it and more.
