Brockton Villa

Whenever you’re in San Diego, try to pay a visit to the area’s affluent seaside community La Jolla. It’s beautiful, it’s exclusive, but it has a neighborhood feel to it. One of the oldest cottages (built 1894) is not only a famous landmark, but houses a great restaurant that offers all-day and all-year dining with spectacular views of La Jolla Bay.  Brockton Villa serves breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner and drinks; enough to let you hang on the wraparound veranda for hours. Their specialty is – of course – seafood and you simply cannot go here unless you try one of their sea-inspired dishes such as the “Grilled Fresh Fish Tacos, “Macadamia Nut Crusted Scallops” or “Epic Chowder”. You can watch the sun set while you hear the sounds of the harbor seals and sea lions playing on the beach. It’s an amazing experience! We sincerely hope that this old building will last for many years to come…

Since its opening last fall, Catch has been a magnet for the good looking Meatpacking crowd of models, rock stars and business moguls. This three-level seafood restaurant with lounge/club area is loud, vibrant and happening! Don’t mind the looooong waits and snooty front desk girls; once you’re seated, you’ll love it! Seafood lovers will be treated to a surprising selection of sushi & sashimi, “big fish” (that serves two people),  raw bar items like oysters and “simply cooked” choices including sole, swordfish and tuna. Top Chef winner Hung Huynh runs the kitchen and with mouthwatering dishes such as crab-stuffed calamari, he affirms this title. The waiting staff at Catch is friendly and accommodating and knows how to deal with large groups. So bring lots of friends but don’t expect to “catch” up with them since the loud music and buzzing scene don’t really allow it. Overall, Catch is a great fish addition to the Meatpacking area and we recommend going there before it turns into just another has-been restaurant.
