San Diego’s Going Back To Their Roots


The dining scene in the Gaslamp Quarter is heating up and the newest restaurant to come on board is Rustic Root. This American Cuisine restaurant focuses on turning out creative versions of locally-sourced meats, produce, seafood and house-made ingredients from Executive Chef Antonio Friscia and his culinary team. Staple items include comfort foods like fried chicken, deviled eggs and delectable pasta dishes with fresh-made noodles per order. The homey menu is complimented with craft cocktails and California beer and wine selections.

The sleek, multi-level setting includes an industrial-chic, 500 square-foot ground floor with eye-catching art, as well as an entire wall dedicated to the trending game of Sudoku, with lights modeled after the Gaslamp’s signature street lamps. Rustic Root also offers downtown’s only stylish rooftop dining area, along with a full-service bar underneath market lights. For in-house private events, the restaurant can accommodate groups as small as 20 to large events with 350 guests.
