George's at the Cove

George's at the Cove is a renowned three-level dining destination located in the heart of La Jolla overlooking the Pacific coastline. Considered the region's best rooftop dining, you can grab a bite alfresco at the Ocean Terrace & Bar, or choose the relaxed setting of George's Bar one level down where indoors and outdoors flow together; both levels serve a casual bistro menu for lunch and dinner. On the lower level, George's California Modern is an upscale contemporary restaurant featuring Executive Chef/Partner Trey Foshee's thoughtful and inventive dinner menu that changes daily. Simply put, George's at the Cove is for people who believe in enjoying the San Diego lifestyle to its fullest. And that includes a great meal.

California Modern Cooking

Working with predominantly locally-sourced products, Chef Foshee artfully combines ingredients to create modern dishes that yield not only pure, intensified flavors, but also interesting flavor combinations where each flavor bounces off the others in just the right way. A soy gelatin that delicately melts to blend with a bit of raw hamachi. Slow-roasted beets enhanced by beet-balsamic marshmallows and goat cheese foam. Watermelon cubes dusted with dehydrated black olives and served with cherry tomatoes, diced feta cheese and petite arugula. Each dish tells a story and offers an element of surprise. The California Modern experience has been described as "evoking San Diego and capturing its culinary essence - on a plate." It's an experience you won't want to miss.
