Rancho Bernardo Inn

RBI makes for a next-level staycation. Avant offers fine dining, while Veranda serves casual fare. After golf, book a massage at the spa’s outdoor cottages. Or reserve a cabana at the adults-only pool, from $85 for a half day.
17550 Bernardo Oaks Drive

 

The Barrel Room

Choose from 250 wine bottles at this dimly lit, romantic spot—all but hidden in an unassuming strip mall—and pair your glass with their cheesy arancini appetizer.
16765 Bernardo Center Drive

 

Brothers Provisions

The upscale deli is known for its rotating selection of gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, like a truffle cheddar with bacon marmalade.

Phil’s BBQ

The San Diego staple’s fourth location serves all the char-grilled favorites, like ribs and their famous Colossal Onion Rings.
17051 West Bernardo Drive

 

Manzanita Roasting Company

Manzanita sources direct-trade beans from small farms, uses an eco-conscious roasting machine, and composts all waste. They also host roasting demos on Wednesdays.
13330 Paseo del Verano Norte

 

Bernardo Winery

This family-owned spot is more like a community gathering place. V’s Coffee and Charcuterie is the on-site café, their parking lot hosts the local farmers’ market on Fridays, and you can sip sangiovese while listening to live music on Sundays.

Urge Gastropub

With more than 50 brews on tap, this strip mall spot is big on beers—and indulgent eats. Try the fried cheese curds or the Burger of the Gods, a grass-fed patty with bacon, pesto, and aioli.

The Cork and Craft

Helmed by chef Philip Esteban, who trained under David Chang at Momofuku Ssäm Bar in New York, the Cork and Craft turns out modern Californian cuisine in a space that also houses a winery and brewery.
