If you can't make it to Paris, compromise with this French bistro in La Jolla where you can dine on escargot while taking in the ocean view from their terrace. It might not be the Eiffel Tower, but it’s not too shabby. Executive chef Theivan Luce comes to San Diego by way of Paris, where he worked at Michelin-starred restaurant La Maison du Danemark. He’s created a menu of traditional dishes that pair beautifully with the broad selection of French wines. Lunch and dinner is served during the week, and breakfast on weekends.
