Located in La Jolla, Himitsu calls itself a bistro. The name means secret, and this fits because you have to know about Himitsu in order to find it. The restaurant consists of a tiny 8-person sushi bar and 20-person outdoor patio sits in a quiet corner of peaceful La Jolla, and it offers diners both a traditional menu of sushi and nigiri, as well as less-traditional Japanese tapas. Enjoy the food at Himitsu in the intimate atmosphere, or order from the sake menu or wine list, which features natural wines and Japanese beers. The minimalist interior compliments the restaurants focus on the flavor of its food above all else.

Its name might not let on what the restaurant is actually all about, but Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub is a sushi restaurant that focuses on local fisherman and growers when making its sushi. Wrench and Rodent provides a casual dining experience with a menu that is innovative and packed with exciting flavors. As many ingredients as possible are locally sourced on the Wrench and Rodent menu, and the restaurant takes many steps to minimize waste post-meals.
