Beaumont’s, La Jolla

In Dining by LA Travel Magazine

According to “The Best of La Jolla” Beaumont’s is not to be missed when visiting the area.  Entrenched in the heart of La Jolla’s admired Bird Rock seaside community, Beaumont’s is a central meeting spot for locals to gather for fabulous food, hand-made cocktails, and top-rate entertainment in a casual, yet contemporary atmosphere.  When you walk in the door you automatically feel like a local.

The vibe is fun and the live music is the perfect complement to the atmosphere.  When we arrived our server gave us the option of ordering brunch or lunch.  After dining at The Mission, lunch was the way to go.  The first thing I noticed on the menu was the Truffle Fries (you know me) and the next was the Remodeled Grilled Cheese with Kale, White Cheddar and Smokey Horseradish.  My order was complete, well except for a beverage.  Taking one look around I noticed almost everyone in the place was drinking a bright orange cocktail.  The server fills me in on their signature drink the “Don’t You Judge Me”, a cocktail made with Kettle One Citron, Champagne and a splash of Orange Juice.  Now we were acting the part and fitting in with the locals.  The food was great, especially my Truffle Fries.  My other half ordered his own portion, knowing I wouldn’t share with him and before I knew what was happening mine was gone and I was onto his.  That’s what boyfriends are for right?  We also tried Beaumont’s Burger which is their special 1/2 pound three meat blend; it was juicy and cooked just right.
