Beaumont’s Eatery

Screen Shot 2017-09-22 at 2.34.31 PM

Deeply-rooted in the very heart of La Jolla’s venerated Bird Rock seaside community, Beaumont’s is a principal meet up spot for locals to gather for extraordinary food, hand-crafted cocktails, and first-rate entertainment in a laid back yet fashionable ambiance. Beaumont’s came to scenic Bird Rock in 2005, when the entire area was fraught with besieged businesses, everyday building foreclosures, and a vanished sense of community. Since opening its doors, Beaumont’s continues to breathe new life into the community, improving the growth and enhancement of local businesses and representing Bird Rock as an exciting and diverse neighborhood. Owners Megan and David Heine, of Brockton Villa Restaurant in La Jolla, share a profound thirst for maintaining the immediate community and anchoring the life of Bird Rock in this hidden jewel by the sea.

Brockton Villa

The fashionable restaurant remains a noteworthy reminder of the architectural past alive in the La Jolla community: modest and attractive, set apart by the Pacific, the sun and the warm sands. Brockton Villa is optimistic that you will delight in your dining experience and return again for gastronomic goodness. As they are fond of saying, “Come to our house!”

Overlooking scenic La Jolla Cove, Duke’s serves an unpretentious contemporary interpretations of traditional island plates replete with friendly and hospitable service. As a tribute to Hawaii and SoCal beach lifestyles, Duke’s celebrates family, astonishing views and the true spirit of aloha.
