Owner/Chef Jesse Paul has a long history of cooking at some of the best restaurants in San Diego, but this Escondido spot is all his own. The dishes that make up his upscale comfort food menu are seasonal, sustainable, locally sourced and made from scratch daily. You have to try the Spoon Burger, which is made from house-ground beef, bacon-onion jam, smoked blue cheese, and tomato aioli; and be sure to finish off your meal with the butterscotch pot du crème with sea salt ganache and whisky Chantilly.
