Foodie Adventures: Herringbone


Upon first approach, Herringbone is a brick warehouse sticking out on La Jolla's pristine streets. If you didn't know it was a restaurant, you would think it was some super secret club. The gorgeously carved wood doors denote that something exciting is hidden behind them.


After walking through the doors you enter into a bright and airy space filled with delightful decor, olive trees and a vibe that is oh-so-la-jolla. Rustic and chic... this is the restaurant of my Pinterest dreams.




Herringbone is the newest of Top Chef Brian Malarkey's restaurant group. The theme at this wonderful establishment is "Fish Meets Field." You can see this reflected in their menu that serves dressed up comforted food featuring goods from the sea and the land.



We opted for Sunday brunch and it did not dissapoint. We shared the...

Hazelnut Sticky Bun with warm cream cheese icing...

Chicken and Biscuit with a bacon and cheddar biscuit, fried chicken, maple syrup and potatoes...



And the Pancakes that were peanut butter and dark chocolate chip...

The winner of the brunch was hands down the Hazelnut Sticky Bun. I'm not usually a huge fan of foods like that (cinnamon buns, donuts, coffee cake etc...), but this was out-of-this-world. I'd go back just for that and a cup of coffee! The Chicken and Biscuit was delish in theory, but a bit dry for us. We didn't dig the maple syrup and felt that a little gravy would have solved the problem. The pancake was fabulous, but by the time we got to it... we were already so full!

The atmosphere of Herringbone is the biggest selling point. I'd love to go back for dinner and drinks, but the menu has quite a high price point. Thus, I think I'll stick to their brunch. Next time, I am most definitely opting for their Maine Lobster Roll. It looked crazy good.
