Where Chef Jason Knibb Eats When He's Off the Clock

Nine-Ten's culinary master shares his top three picks



Published:

Jason Knibb, the culinary master at Nine-Ten restaurant in La Jolla’s Grande Colonial Hotel has earned as much respect from diners as he has from fellow chefs. Here, the Bay
Ho–based talent shares where he likes to eat when he’s off the clock.

1. “Even after 10 years, Whisknladle is still one of my favorites. My go-to dish is their chilaquiles with adobo chicken. It’s such a great little neighborhood spot.”

2. “Tribute Pizza is quite possibly the best pizza in San Diego, especially the Dirty Dancin’ pizza, but you have to add on the bacon lardons and pork sausage. Any of the focaccias are also very tasty.”

3. “I really like what chef Brad Wise is doing at Trust—his ability to create amazing, flavorful dishes while still keeping things simple. I never miss the sticky bun at brunch.”
