Thrillist’s “15 Quintessential Food and Dining Experiences in San Diego”
Relax with Juniper and Ivy’s classic farm-to-table experience
Juniper and Ivy was one of the first restaurants to open in the north end of Little Italy nine years ago and still garners high praise both locally and nationally, including a Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand designation. Culinary director and James Beard Award semifinalist Anthony Wells changes the menu almost daily, taking advantage of whatever local seafood, seasonal fruits and vegetables are available. A few signature dishes have managed to stay on a bit longer, like the delectable dry-aged whole roasted duck, the off-menu In-N-Haute burger and of course, the wildly popular dessert, Yodel. Reservations are recommended and can be made via OpenTable. Walk-ins are accepted if seating is available.
