Most Solana Beach homeowners have visited the former Pacific Coast Grill which Crush has taken over. Crush has upgraded the venue with a clean, contemporary design that celebrates the spirit of the coast while playing with rustic undertones and honoring Italian tradition.

The owners have developed a menu of Italian-inspired seasonal cuisine, which features traditional Italian flavors and cooking techniques, with fresh, local and organic ingredients. Dinner starters and small plates for the Carmel Valley San Diego community to try include Ahi Tuna Tartare, Giant Roasted Mussels, Gorgonzola Chopped Salad, and Venus Clam Linguine. Entrée selections include Eggplant Parmigiana – crispy eggplant, provolone, pomodoro and basil; Lamb Shank – ancient grain polenta, aged cheddar, fresh produce and hand cut fries; and Marinated Prime Skirt Steak – heirloom tomato, pancetta and smoked bleu cheese.
