You know the savvy traveler trick: eat where the locals go. And if the venue also happens to have a wizard of a chef and the best views from a privileged 11th floor perch of any La Jolla restaurants, well, you have a culinary experience to dine for. At our Cusp restaurant, Executive Chef Donald Lockhart renders a Coastal Mediterranean menu featuring freshly caught, culled and harvested ingredients to create an inventive menu that takes the most sophisticated palates on a taste-filled journey. Reflecting Lockhart’s passion for the freshest ingredients, Cusp's shareable menu consists of flavorful dishes with beautiful presentation, including seasonal produce, fresh grilled fish, housemade pastas, local meats and rustic flatbreads from our pizza oven. It’s all paired with an extensive wine list and artful craft cocktails to ensure a meal whose main ingredient is delight.
