For exquisite fine dining with ocean views to die for, treat yourself to Eddie V’s, which opened Monday.

Located at the old Chart House site at 1270 Prospect St. overlooking the La Jolla caves, the new high-end steak and seafood restaurant is La Jolla’s latest attraction.

“We think it’s the best view of any restaurant in La Jolla, the height … You’re just really able to sit up here and look down: It’s pretty impressive,” said Kathryn Murphy, who was present opening night with kayak tour business operator Lance Peto.

“Gorgeous location — it’s a fabulous spot right out there (upper terrace),” he said.
Elegant and clean with exceptional lines, Eddie V’s is a multilayered experience offering three different levels with outdoor patio seating.

“The architects did a great job,” said restaurant general manager Ron Fabor. “Our interior design, just opening the building up, has made a big difference to it.”
Eddie V’s is a real sampling of the Southwest.

“One of our owners is from Texas, the other is from the Louisiana area, and together they’ve put together a great little restaurant company,” said Fabor. “It’s been a blessing to be here. We’re going to make the pie bigger for La Jolla.”

Fabor said an public observation deck holding 50 people will open soon adjacent to the restaurant. “Mr. (Don) Allison, he’s our landlord and he’s done a great job of working on his buildings on that side.”

Eddie V’s menu emphasizes prime seafood creations, USDA prime beef and chops, and fresh oyster bar selections. Signature dishes include New Zealand Barramundi Meuniere-style, Maryland-style All Lump Crab Cake and premium Black Angus Steaks.

Open from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. daily, with live music nightly. Find out more by calling (858) 459-5500 or visiting www.eddiev.com.
