Oceanside is having quite a moment, and the restaurant scene continues to impress with the opening of Valle, sister restaurant to chef Roberto Alcocer’s noteworthy Malva Cocina de Baja California. Valle uses Southern California-sourced ingredients in dishes like Tartara, with Rosewood Ranches Wagyu, grain mustard, pickled golden thread mushroom, local fresh uni, and a marbled rye tuile, and Coliflor, with charcoal-grilled and marinated cauliflower, garam masala, garlic chips, and sage. Take advantage of the array of Valle de Guadalupe wines available by the glass or bottle, or a lively agave-based cocktail, including a trio of zero-alcohol options. A vegan menu is also available.
How to book: Reservations can be made online via SevenRooms. Walk-ins are accepted if seating is available.
