Nine-Ten Restaurant and Bar
This New-American La Jolla restaurant features innovative menu items with fresh, seasonal ingredients alongside great service and ambiance. Be sure to try the infamous half-baked chocolate cake.
No dish says more about Nine-Ten Restaurant than its Jamaican Jerk Pork Belly appetizer. This centerpiece pays homage to executive chef Jason Knibb’s Jamaican heritage, albeit in elevated form, and the pairing with baby carrots, swiss chard, plantains, and black-eyed peas with sweet potato purée gives it a California feel. It’s a variation on a theme repeated throughout the menu: flavor combinations that make sense, offered in surprising and refined ways.
How to book: Walk-ins are accepted if seating is available.
