Addison is the Mount Everest of fancy San Diego restaurants. All of the dishes on the $355-per-person seasonal tasting menu are expertly executed, whether that’s chicken liver churros, a crispy potato cube layered with black truffle and Iberico ham, or sashimi with kiwi and melon. Beyond the food, Addison has an extensive, excellent wine and cocktail list, including bottles from smaller producers and rare champagne. The restaurant just got a refresh in 2020, so now it’s warmer, brighter, and complements the space’s arched windows and high ceilings. All that makes Addison a phenomenal place to celebrate that promotion you’ve waited years for, or when you want to pull out the stops for something really romantic.
