Cucina Enoteca

No big deal ya know... just a new favorite restaurant alert. Okay I lied, it is kind of a big deal.

While searching for the perfect rehearsal dinner restaurant Nadav and I recently found ourselves at Cucina Enoteca in Del Mar.  We loved the food, service, and atmosphere so much that we've been back twice since our first visit and I am already planning another dinner there with friends.

Beautifully decorated, Cucina Enoteca is hip in that perfectly bohemian kind of way. Mason jars, retro fabrics, long wooden tables, and a *gasp* wishing wall in the women's bathroom. It's everything my bohemian restaurant dreams are made of, I can't get enough. =P Cucina Enoteca is so hip that it almost feels like it belongs in New York City or LA. I guess San Diego is jumping on the cool restaurant bandwagon and I am not mad about it. ;)

Superficial things aside, the food at Cucina Enoteca is some of the best I've had in a long time. The stuffed fried squash blossoms appetizers are a MUST. The arctic char (which tastes a lot like cooked salmon to me) is perfectly prepared, and I seriously can't get enough of the wasabi mashed potatoes. While we're on the topic, the desserts are dangerously good. I mean really, the tiramisu is finger licking good and the nutella affogato (aka the most delicious doughy donut you've ever had) is a major problem. #GetItAwayFromMeOrIllEatItAll

If you're looking for a nice dinner out check out Cucina Enoteca in Del Mar. You won't regret it.
Happy Friday Friends

There is also one in Irvine, CA at the Irvine Spectrum Center and they have another restaurant in San Diego called Fish Public :) I'm a big fan, check those out too!

So happy you posted about them -- we have one in Irvine and one of my girlfriends swears by this place but never says what she orders! Now I'll have to go for sure :)
