Bo Beau Kitchen + Bar: is one of the Cohn restaurants and a true gem! I first tried it a month ago with a friend and we instantly fell in love. We started off with the crispy brussels sprouts with pancetta, parmesan, and balsamic. Let me first start off by saying that I don't even like brussels sprouts but think these are delicious, because they are grilled, they aren't bitter at all. The duck fat deviled eggs and almond crusted portabella's were also really good. My two absolute favorite dishes are the braised short rib flat bread with horseradish smashed potatoes and chives and the duck confit fettuccini with roasted mushrooms, arugula, and parmesan reduction. To think of it, I haven't had anything that I don't like!
Dumpling Inn: This is a hole in the wall restaurant that my friend found on yelp and it's so good! We only ordered dumplings because, well...it's called Dumpling Inn after all! It lived up to all of our expectations and the next time I am in San Diego, I'll be going there again! We ordered the boiled pork and chive dumplings, deep friend beef curry dumplings, and two orders of the soup dumplings. All of the dumplings were full of flavor and the soup dumplings had a wonderful broth inside! They have affordable prices and the service is quick, make sure you get there early because it's a small restaurant that fills up quickly!
