Critics and diners have heaped plenty of praise upon Starlite, but there's no better way to find out just why this is one of San Diego's best restaurants than giving it a try for yourself. Starlite offers the sort of handmade cuisine that utilizes year-round abundant produce available in the region's temperate climate. This allows Starlite to change its menu frequently, accommodating the seasonality of these products and offering a first-rate farm-to-table experience. Starlite's dishes have a focus on locally-sourced cuisine, or "slow food", with ingredients that bring out the best in each dish, whether it's through the organic fruits and veggies, or the sensibly raised and/or harvested proteins. The menu changes daily, check their website

Starlite is all about quality drinks, food, and atmosphere, so that attention to detail extends to the relaxed, comfortable space that sets the tone for meeting with friends, sipping craft cocktails, savoring all of that fabulous "slow food", and even indulging in a late-night dining rendezvous. Drink options include unique craft cocktails featuring all-natural juices, as well as house-made syrups and bitters. You'll also find imported and local beers, hard-to-find spirits, and fine wines to pair with your favorite dishes, or to enjoy during one of the many weekly specials or the daily happy hour. With one of the city's most custom interiors, Starlite is a dazzling sight to behold -- from the smoke-tinted glass door that leads a stunning hallway and sunken white bar, right down to that natural elements that seamlessly blend the likes of stacked stone, walnut paneling, and cork tiles into the decor.
