A Modern Bistro & Bar on the La Jolla Dining SceneFresh vintage returns to La Valencia at the Café la Rue, a new interpretation of a French bistro and bar. Experience modern European cuisine, artisan libations, deserts and coffee drinks in a casual village atmosphere in the heart of La Jolla. Creative global cuisine is made with fresh seafood and local ingredients of Southern California. The playful menu features entrees, sandwiches, salads, scratch-made soups and share plates like the charred steak tartare au poivre. Enjoy mains like steelhead salmon with edamame puree and mussels & frites, and sweets like the lavender scented creme brulee.
Café la Rue brings a lively Euro-style vibe to the La Jolla food scene. Inspired by the art of hotel legend Wing Howard, this vibrant bistro with terrazzo floors, venetian plaster ceilings and a large bar is graced by paintings of the original 1947 café. Sip classic cocktails, like The Pink Lady or Massena Old Fashion, and enjoy the people watching on the outdoor patio.
