About the restaurant
A sushi bar and Japanese bistro. Inspired by the sushi bars in Tokyo. Himitsu introduces Japanese culture, design, and hospitality to San Diego.

Our 8 person sushi bar and 20 person patio is located in a discrete corner of La Jolla, a setting well suited to our name, which translate to "Secret" in Japanese.

Chef Mitsu Aihara presents a menu of traditional sushi and nigiri, along with Japanese style tapas using the high quality products and ingredients.

About the restaurant
Harney Sushi has been serving up San Diego's best sushi since 2001. As fresh and it gets, as imaginative as you want. This is the place where experimentation mixes with celebration, where fine dining service and knowledge fuses with beaming personality and style. Come check out one of Harney Sushi's featured nightly specials, brunch, live music, happy hour, catering, private dinning and more...

You must try one of our signature rolls prepared fresh by Head Chef Miguel Castillo, The Rolls Royce Roll, Flaming Lip Roll and the Castillo Roll are fan favorites. Not into the raw stuff? We have something for everybody, try the Osider #55 Roll with seared top sirloin, shrimp, and fried onions or one of Harney Sushi's entrees form the grill like our amazing Chimi-chile steak entree. We have a kids menu too...

Harney Sushi is located one block from coast highway right in front of the AMC theater and two blocks from the Oceanside Pier.

About the restaurant
Please call for reservations of 7+ (760) 271-0531

Founded in 2013 by Davin and Jessica Waite, Wrench & Rodent is a space for culinary exploration and collaboration. This cozy, eclectic restaurant quickly became a destination for those who appreciated Chef Davin’s creative approach to celebrating local and responsibly sourced fish and produce.

In addition to a set sushi menu, Wrench offers an omakase as well as a list of specials that change daily. The team is committed to reducing waste and enhancing flavor by elevating all cuts of fish and veggies, as well as featuring a diverse range of species. Many menu items are simple, fresh and creative, with a lesser-known fish species complimented by ingredients from the backyard garden. Byproduct utilization drives the menu as well, and recent explorations with aging techniques have led to a dry aged fish program. Plant-forward preparations are also celebrated, and a vegan omakase is available upon request.

We always love the great sushi at W&R! Street noise can be super loud during the evening hours.

About the restaurant
WELCOME TO CLOAK & PETAL!
Where we invite you to journey into a place of both intimacy and companionship
Our concept is drawn from our name. The word “cloak” implies secrecy, inspiring our concept of a social sphere humming beneath the levels of ordinary life. “Petal” alludes to the Japanese tradition of “hanami,” when family and friends gather under blooming cherry blossoms to savor food, drinks and fellowship.
Enter our space and travel underground to décor reminiscent of an abandoned Tokyo subway, a stratum of society all its own, an artist’s dream. Cross the threshold into a mystically transformed Japanese social dining lounge which appears to be an outdoor seating area, similar to a waiting platform. Sit beneath a trellis of draping vines and teardrop lights in the intimate space we’ve thoughtfully created, and feast on authentic Japanese sushi, appetizers, small plates and drinks with family and friends.

Journey down to Cloak + Petal… and come unwind your soul.

From the vibes, to the food, and the dessert AMAZING. I will be back for the Lychee tres leches. The Cali creamin on nitro was so good. I got the saucy girl roll and spicy garlic edmame 10/10 ! Came for my bday and they had a sparkler in the cake which was fun and cute. Will bring my friends here when they’re in town for sure.
