La Jolla speaks for itself. First things first, it's name translates to “The Jewel”, and it truly is the Jewel of San Diego. Jutting out into the Pacific Ocean and providing breath-taking views of coastline, La Jolla Cove is home to Prospect Street, often remarked to be San Diego's more laid-back version of Los Angeles' famous Rodeo Drive. Lined upon Prospect Street is a plethora of restaurants, each offering their own version of what La Jolla cuisine is all about. Join us October 10th, 2011 to sample the posh cuisine that makes La Jolla the stylish community it has come to be.
