The Local Scoop: Grant Grill is a San Diego institution long known as the choice for power-broking politicians, lawyers and top executives. In 1969 a group of women lawyers demanded equal access to the previously men-only dining room and the rest, as they say, is history. Today the Grant Grill is known as the place for anyone to get a great meal any time of day.

We Recommend:

  • Halibut: Locally caught and served with purple potato gnocchi, tomatoes, olives, a champagne gastrique and petite watercress. This is a dish that unites the best of coastal California in one flavorful feast.
  • Mango Beignets: An exquisite concoction that transforms the classic New Orleans dessert through a tropical infusion. Served with Malibu rum sauce and crème fraiche ice cream, this is a dish to savor on a sunny day.
