After impressing Valle de Guadalupe diners at Malva Cocina de Baja California over the last several years, chef Roberto Alcocer has put down roots in Oceanside with Valle, a lush restaurant with stellar views of the Pacific Ocean. The four- or eight-course, prix fixe menus feature California-sourced ingredients, with flavors that are sealed over an open wood fire and offered alongside an optional wine pairing. For the ultimate experience, book the chef’s table inside the kitchen that seats one to six guests, where you’ll be dazzled by an 8-12 course tasting menu and a guided, upscale wine pairing using the highest quality seasonal ingredients from the region in each course. A full bar serves craft agave cocktails.
