Restaurant of The Moment: Pizza Port

135 N. Highway 101
Solana Beach, CA 92075

http://www.pizzaport.com/http://www.pizzaport.com/

Pizza Port has made quite the name for itself over the years due to its homemade pizza and great craft beer. The atmosphere is noisy, but fun, and is a huge hit with families and friends due to its communal seating.

Our favorite craft beer has to be the Kook Double IPA, which we always pair with the Beer Buddies appetizer. “Beer Buddies” are bite-sized pieces of Pizza Port’s signature crust, brushed with garlic or cajun spice and served with ranch dressing or marinara sauce. Pro Tip: It is a game changer to add cheese to the Beer Buddies! You won’t be disappointed!

When it comes to the pizza at Pizza Port, we recommend going big. Our favorite pizza is the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza which consists of tangy BBQ sauce, seasoned meatballs, bacon, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, and red onions. But any pizza you get from this neighborhood favorite is sure to hit the spot!

In addition to their original Solana Beach Pizza Port location, there are also Pizza Ports in Ocean Beach, Carlsbad, and San Clemente.

Restaurant of The Moment: Le Papagayo

1002 N Coast Hwy 101

Encinitas, CA 92024

http://lepapagayoleucadia.com/

band

Le Papagayo is considered to be one of the best restaurants in North County, and with good reason. The Leucadia eatery offers a fusion of Mediterranean and Latin flavors on their menu, as well as live music every night. The restaurant is a great meeting point for friends and family due to its outdoor dog-friendly patio, and art gallery style indoor dining.

The menu consists of food items such as gourmet sandwiches, burgers, salads, soups, fresh fish, prosciutto mac & cheese, and many other delicious items. Our favorite salad is the “Papagayo” which is made up of roasted beets, avocado, tomatoes, and goat cheese on a bed of chopped romaine, and topped with sangria dressing. If you enjoy fish, we highly recommend adding salmon or seared ahi for extra yumminess!
