Get A Room

Skip the crowds and surrender your cooking skills—it’s just too much pressure, we understand—and book a private dining experience for your clan this season. Here are five of our fave spaces:


Published:

Milano Room at Bice

Perfect for: Groups looking for private dining before “going out” downtown

Didn’t quite finish decorating your place up to have-the-staff-over standards? Let Bice do the impressing with the sleek, modern Italian design in the Milano Room and fancy menu options like a custom cheese bar with an expert on hand for tasting and pairing or special wine pairing tailored just for your group.

 

 

 

Leroy’s

Perfect for: Laid-back family dinners after sightseeing on the water

After taking the in-laws for a cruise around San Diego Bay or impressing  Midwestern cousins with a beach day in December, book the private room at Coronado’s newest gastropub for a feast of local beers and farm-to-table fare like grilled local yellowtail and local deviled eggs or pub classics like poutine. 

Burlap

Perfect for: Out-of-town groups who want to be seen in the SD scene

With the clamor of scenesters in the main dining room and bar, the tucked-away private room might just be the only way to do Burlap with a big group, if you actually want to hear everyone. Mismatched chairs with saddles hanging above oriental rugs work to make the funky, Asian-Cowboy space feel festive and fun.

Anthology

Perfect for: Celebrations, from holiday birthdays to NYE to year-end employee recognition

Perched above the stage, The Taylor Guitar room feels so-VIP with a glass-door entrance, stainless steel floor, and peek-a-boo bird’s-eye view down to the “regular people” in the dining room. A long table seats 18 for dinner, and a plasma screen on the far wall shows a live feed of the act onstage below.  

Bencotto

Perfect for: Family-style families who like pasta and wine and plenty of it

Rent out the upstairs space, and chef Fabrizio will keep the food coming. Risotto served family-style out of a huge wheel of Parmigianino Reggiano, light-as-air slivers of prosciutto sliced off a fancy imported slicer, and fresh pasta for days. The Bencotto sauce laced with pancetta is reason enough for a private party.
