Shores Restaurant a great spot for summer dining

If you haven’t checked out The Shores Restaurant and bar recently, you’ve been missing out.

Located within the La Jolla Shores Hotel, the restaurant, which opened in 1970, has been a cornerstone of the three-story, Spanish-style hotel property with its 128 guest rooms, meeting and banquet facilities, and a variety of recreational activities.

Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, nightly specials and an a la carte Sunday brunch, The Shores Restaurant focuses on exceptional quality and fresh local ingredients.

The Shores Restaurant is great for summer dining.

“Summer translates to farmer’s market vegetables and freshly caught fish,” said chef Bernard Guillas.

Offered nightly during July is the restaurant’s Sip and Savor menu featuring heirloom tomato and crab. August will celebrate the best Pacific catch — Alaskan Halibut.

Summer is prime time at The Shores, and new this season is music on the patio Thursday evenings with a different musical performer each week.

As the executive chef of the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club, The Shores and the Marine Room, Guillas said his vision is to “showcase the best ingredients that our region has to offer.”

Guillas added each restaurant has a unique personality and cuisine.

“The common threads are ingredients in season, sustainability and intense flavors for every palate,” he said adding, “Life is delicious. … savor it.”

Lisa Redwine, sommelier for The Shores, said there is much that is new and exciting on the restaurant’s cocktail menu.

“Try the Ginalicious, a blend of Hendricks gin, fresh lime and muddled cucumber,” she said, recommending new wines — Malvasia from Toro Spain, Scarpetta Pinot Grigio and Brachetto from Piemonte Italy — to try.

“It’s like a worldwide vacation in a glass,” Redwine said.

The Shores Restaurant at 8110 Camino del Oro is owned and operated by the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, Inc. Validated, underground parking is available for restaurant patrons. For information and reservations, call (858) 456-0600, or visit
