Finch’s offering eclectic menu, tasteful dining in La Jolla

Finch’s Wine Bar & Bistro at 7644 Girard Ave., offering indoor and patio dining, is open for business.

The establishment is run by Linda and Marshall Ravden, their son Nicholas and daughter in-law Tiana, as well as non-family partner Martin Hall.

“We have a unique and eclectic menu, with uncomplicated food,” said Linda Ravden, adding the restaurant didn’t want to be pigeonholed into any particular style or theme. “We and our chefs wanted to be creative.”

She said her new family bistro is offering casual, high-end dining at reasonable prices. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday in the location formerly home to Cafe Lautrec and Cafe Lavande. Lunch is served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; happy hour with live music and “small plates” is from 4 to 7 p.m. and dinner is served from 6 to 10 p.m.

They can be reached at (858) 456-4056 and currently have a website under construction at
