With San Diego on the cusp of springtime, La Jolla chefs are preparing for the season with fresh new seasonal dishes.

Executive chef Trey Foshee at George’s at the Cove recently revealed his array of seasonal California Modern menu items, including springtime twists on his dry-aged ribeye, diver scallops, Jidori chicken, local black cod and Thai snapper. Mixologist Frankie Thahel’s latest lineup of seasonal craft cocktails, such as the Manitoba Spring, Taproot Cooler and Cienega, provide the perfect pairing. George’s Bar and Ocean Terrace will also feature desserts crafted by pastry chef Lori Saur, like the mocha mousse bar, sticky toffee pudding cake and lemon chiffon.
