Herb & Wood Chef Brian Malarkey's new restaurant that is known for wood fire cookery focusing on basic rustic preparations that rely on the quality of the ingredients. Menu items include the likes of Local Tuna & Uni Crudo with apple, shallot, herb relish and cucumber citrus broth; Wood Fire King Trumpet Mushrooms with lemon verbena and house churned butter; pastas made in-house like Triagoli with smoked rabbit sausage, burrata, Meyer lemon and pistachios; and Grilled Swordfish with yogurt, farro, pea sprouts and charred carrots in a curry vinaigrette. The wood fire oven churns out pizzas charred to perfection with an array of delectable toppings, from seasonal veggies, to house-made sausage and salumi. Pizza dough ismade in-house and aged for 48 hours prior to use. Breads are baked daily and simple desserts complement the cuisine. A "High Spirited" cocktail program includes old-school throwbacks, herbs and other savory ingredients. Herb & Wood is open for dinner Tuesday - Sunday.
- Best of San Diego's Little Italy: "Ask for the off-menu Parker House Rolls and you can now head to the attached casual market and eatery, Herb & Eatery for breakfast and lunch."
- Recommended as Best of San Diego's Little Italy Because: The massive restaurant is divided into four spaces (two lounges, a dining room and patio), recently opened and, so far, people are loving it.
