Restaurant of the Moment: Eddie V’s
1270 Prospect St La Jolla, CA 92037
Classy, upscale fish restaurants with great views seem almost a dime a dozen in La Jolla. Eddie V’s manages to transcend the rest.
Rooftop dining with ocean views that somehow manages to escape the plague of the iconic fishy smell of La Jolla is a good start. Delicious food is even better.
Every seafood dish is perfectly and expertly prepared. Even the sides don’t lack for culinary care. From truffle mac and cheese, to roasted fingerling potatoes, to the jumbo shrimp appetizer, to the lemon sole, the food is fresh, flavorful, and exquisite. Round off your meal with some great appetizers and drinks. And don’t even think about skipping dessert. The bananas foster is phenomenal. People in the dining group raved about it as being “the best dessert they’d ever had”.
Make sure to make reservations. The restaurant can get quite busy, especially on the weekends.
