Wonderful Italian restaurant serving pizza from a traditional wood fired oven. Great outdoor patio. Friendly Italian Speaking staff. Gets busy, may have to wait, but worth it.

Herb and Wood

2210 Kettner Boulevard San Diego, CA 92101 | 619-955-8495

Formerly a warehouse district in what now is called North Little Italy. A combination of high-end dining with a local hipster mood, the strip from Laurel to Ash streets is San Diego’s salute to L.A.’s Melrose Avenue. Celebrity chef Brian Malarkey picked a location next to fellow celeb chef Richard Blais’s Juniper and Ivy, and reworked it as a vast eatery accompanied by a gourmet market. Herb and Wood’s California and Mediterranean cuisine is cooked mostly over a wood fire and with considerable sophistication, a characteristic distinguished by Malarkey’s insistence on house-made everything. “We make our own mozzarella,” he says, spooling a litany of in-house relishes, pickles, breads, and so forth. “We’re going for it.” The bulk of the dishes are smaller plates that can be shared. Flavors run big, though, like the ravishingly succulent seared scallops. A sturdy salad of roasted beets with burrata, walnut pesto, and deluxe Spanish ham is entrancing; equally rich, the smooth pork pâté lounges on slabs of herb-butter–soaked country bread and amid pickled fruit mostarda and other pickled vegetables. Roasted baby carrots are dressed with spicy yogurt and a unique carrot-top pesto. Also, don’t miss the finely perfumed gnocchi with shredded oxtail, sizable meat entrées such as grilled Ibérico pork with cannellini beans, and bone marrow–escargot pizza. For dessert, the handsomely garnished vanilla cream torte is a towering wedge of crepe cake layered with flavored ricotta.
