Herb & Wood

At Little Italy’s Herb & Wood, Chef Brian Malarkey’s wood-fired dishes include roasted parsnips with pickled raisins, parsley-shallot verde, and molten Marin County brie; roasted beets with sherry, walnut pesto, jamón Ibérico, and burrata; and grilled flat bread with whipped eggplant, za’atar, onions, and pine nuts. But the Mediterranean- and California-inspired menu isn’t the only big draw here: The industrial-boudoir aesthetic is equally inviting, with tufted sofas, soft lighting, and feathery fronds under the soaring ceilings of this onetime warehouse. A charmingly tattered edition of Emily Post’s Etiquette book has pride of place on the hostess stand. But the restaurant is unlikely to call guests on any manners infractions except one. In calligraphy at the bottom of the menu, you’ll find the following note: “Substitutions and additions politely declined.”

Herb & Wood

Chef Brian Malarkey, who once starred on the cooking-competition TV show, The Taste, admits he stretched himself too thin with the growth of his Searsucker and Herringbone restaurant franchises. After parting ways with both, he rediscovered his love of cooking once more by cofounding Herb & Wood. The Little Italy brasserie deftly prepares fresh West Coast ingredients with French cooking techniques. A seasonal menu changes daily but dishes might include hamachi with hibiscus ponzu, avocado, and crispy rice pearls, or a dish of grilled venison loin with dates and buttermilk polenta. The restaurant's Sunday brunch is among San Diego’s most delicious, with decadent offerings like eggs Benedict made with with jamon Iberico or crab quiche topped with a dollop of caviar. For those in search of something more casual, the adjacent market Herb & Eatery serves sandwiches, salads, and pizzas to eat in or takeaway.
