Callie might be one of the hardest reservations to get in town. But if you plan ahead and make a reservation for a group, the Mediterranean menu delivers a ton of hits like zhoug-drizzled hummus with warm pita, juicy Aleppo-spiced chicken, and lemon saffron linguini with local uni. The drink list is also excellent, with Italian and Spanish wines by the glass or bottle, local craft beers, and plenty of mezcal- and gin-based cocktails. The tables that face the semi-open kitchen are the best seats in the house, but the dining room is also a great spot for impressing a date or getting a bit fancy with your longtime partner. And if you plan to see a Padres game while you’re in town, Callie is just a five-minute walk to Petco Park.
