West’s Side Story


Published:

Executive Chef Eugenio Martignago of West Steak & Seafood has been cultivating herbs and veggies on his own farm since before it was the thing du jour for local restaurants. Located just two miles from the upscale Carlsbad eatery and its casual little brother, Bistro West, Martignago visits the farm daily— hand-picking snow peas, heirlooom tomatoes, and Persian cucumbers. This fall, West hopes to do some entertaining right on the farm, whose first planting was about a year ago, so stay tuned. In the meantime, make a reservation to try seasonal favorites like Zucchini Blossom Tempura or Braised Veal & Mushroom Casserole. We’re also partial to the Maine Lobster Bisque—after all, not everything fabulous comes from California (Italian-born Martignago included). weststeakandseafood.com
