Saffron Thai

It’s Thai food for whatever ails you at the San Diego staple’s newest location. There’s healthy hits like organic stir fry with kale and ginger, their signature grilled chicken and, exclusive to La Jolla, curries served wrap-style. saffronsandiego

 

Hi Sweetheart

At this boutique, look for all things sunny and happy, like rainbow-print beach towels, color-splashed coffee table books, and baby onesies with gold foil prints. hisweetslajolla

 

Ways & Means Oyster House 

The Huntington Beach–based seafood restaurant is landing on Prospect Street this spring with the namesake dish as its centerpiece, in varieties like Baja-sourced Kumiai and British Columbian Kusshi. Have them grilled with garlic butter or chilled alongside shrimp, tomato, onion, avocado, and lime. wmoysters

 

Level2

There aren’t many places to get a late-night drink in the area. Thankfully, there’s this sleek bar on the second floor of George’s at the Cove, where their creative concoctions—think ice cubes laced with seaweed from La Jolla Cove—are served until 11 p.m. Friday through Sunday. georgeslevel2

 

Bobboi Natural Gelato

Started in 2014 by a Sardinian couple, Bobboi prides itself on local ingredients like Temecula-grown figs and pomegranate from the La Jolla farmers’ market. Flavors often have organic add-ins like blueberries and pumpkin. Don’t miss their Mediterraneo, a blend of hazelnut, almond, and Santa Barbara pistachios. bobboi_naturalgelato

 

Spa La V

La Valencia is debuting a spa in a renovated 1908 bungalow, including six rooms, a deck with ocean views, and a menu of massages, facials tailored to both sexes, singing bowl therapy, and treatments that use CBD products. lavalenciahotel
