American Food La Jolla Restaurants
Sometimes, despite the appeal and abundance of international cuisine and various eclectic combinations, we crave good old American food. And great American food is what you'll find at our listing of La Jolla American restaurants, including The Shores La Jolla restaurant overlooking the beach in La Jolla Shores and aquamoree overlooking La Jolla Cove in downtown La Jolla. True, this is American food with a beach style, coastal influence but you won't lack for the satisfying basics in our directory of American La Jolla restaurants.
If sharing small plates (tapas) of pan seared crab cakes, grilled beef ribs, or fried green tomatoes appeals to you, try aquamoree, where American food is served with a dash of Southern California spice. In addition to about a dozen tapas for lunch and dinner, aquamoree's American food menu includes a variety of soups, salads, and entrees all made with fresh local and organic ingredients.
If sitting overlooking a La Jolla beach while enjoying breakfast, lunch, dinner, or Sunday brunch is your thing, try The Shores in our listing of American restaurants. Located in the La Jolla Shores Hotel, The Shores has been pleasing the palates of both locals and visitors since 1970. In addition to basic American food (pancakes, waffles, cage free eggs for breakfast, burgers, BLTs and salads for lunch, steak, seafood, chicken for dinner), The Shores adds some local color and ingredients to specialty dishes, all made with fresh, local ingredients. These include short rib hash, eggs with chorizo, crab cakes, gouda crab mac and cheese, lemon verbena ricotta ravioli, and martini milkshakes. Both of these restaurants in La Jolla specializing in American food are open for Happy Hour during the week from 4 to 6 p.m.
