Sunny 7

Warm Up with a Fireside Meal in San Diego

San Diego’s cool nights make the perfect excuse to cozy up next to a fire under the stars, with friends, family, food, and drinks. These are some of the most enchanting places to gaze into the flames. Enjoy fire-inspired menus prepared by chefs, or even by you in a grill-your-own dinner lounge.

North County Inland

Mediterranean melds with Californian on Veranda Fireside Lounge & Restaurant's locally-sourced menu at the Rancho Bernardo Inn in North County. The outdoor environs are warmed by a fire and feature breakfast items like short rib hash, dinner entrees such as grilled filet mignon or lemon chicken, and chocolate ganache for dessert.

Campfire

North County Coastal

Flame-kissed brunch, lunch, and dinner eats like whole roasted fish and grilled ribeye are served in a hip campground-like courtyard in Carlsbad. Kids will love the playhouse-sized teepee and adults will dig the cozy indoor-outdoor setting that will make you yearn for a camping trip but glad you’re there instead.

Fireside by the Patio

Point Loma Peninsula

Fireside by the Patio offers a varied global menu of things like pork ribs, yakitori, and flatbread cooked over wood and charcoal. The indoor-outdoor setting is plush and stylish without a touch of stuffiness, thanks to the décor and the breeze.

Turf Supper Club

Downtown

Grill your own meat in this old-school dinner lounge that’s barely changed since its opening in 1950. Classic is the order of the day, from the faux-leather banquettes to the cocktail menu to the silver screen movies playing in the background.

The Grill

La Jolla

Gaze out over the Torrey Pines Golf Course while your breakfast, lunch, or dinner are prepared over a wood-burning rotisserie at The Grill. Sidle up to the brick outdoor fireplace or enjoy a complimentary blanket thrown over your legs to stave off the winds that freshen this luxurious corner of San Diego.

Mustangs and Burros

La Jolla

This restaurant at Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa serves California cuisine with local ingredients on a patio next to inviting fireplaces. The hacienda-style setting is evocative of the Baja flavors in the local ingredients found in dishes like tequila steamed mussels, shrimp ceviche tostada, short rib pozole soup, and Baja fish tacos with cod.
