San Diego is another LUX California destination that we adore. For a fun weekend dinner we headed down south to Pacific Beach to check out the Tower 23’s restaurant, JRDN. Tower 23 is a luxury beachfront hotel that is named after its position on the beach. It has a prime beachside location right in the middle of La Jolla county and Downtown. The hotel boasts a vibrant beach vibe with modern architecture and style.
JRDN is the hotel’s steak and seafood restaurant. It serves California cuisine daily for lunch and dinner. We arrived at 5 pm just in time to enjoy the gorgeous coastal sunsets. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very cool, intimate and relaxed. We are happy to say we really enjoyed the food and the staff. The staff was very friendly and attentive, introducing us to their simple yet delicious menu. We really enjoyed the restaurants minimalist approach, as the food options didn’t overwhelm us. The shrimp ceviche and New York steak was the best we’ve ever had! We also really enjoyed their pear and arugula salad, beautifully topped with pomegranate and pecans, perfectly complimented with their spicy mango margaritas.
Above the restaurant is the tower deck that is located on the second floor of the hotel. Here you will find an exclusive beach experience that is open for hotel guests and invited guests only. It’s the perfect place to enjoy food, drinks and enjoy the dramatic view as the sunset goes down. Overall we loved our dining experience at JRDN and we will definitely come again with our San Diegan friends. The food, service and views of this beachfront hotel and restaurant were excellent. We look forward to making it one of our go to LUX spots in San Diego.
