When it first opened in 2009, Prepkitchen La Jolla was the first in what would become a string of casual style restaurants. Envisioned as a rebuttal to the “Cook’s Paradox” in which talented cooks cannot afford to eat at the wonderful restaurants they cook at, Prepkitchen’s aim was to challenge that. Inspired by cooks for cooks, Prepkitchen La Jolla serves artisanal, farm-to-table cuisine in a relaxed setting reflective of the coastal resort community. Guests will enjoy a casual, intimate dining experience whether seated inside Prepkitchen’s quaint dining room, outside under a covered, candlelit patio or on the open-air patio. Prepkitchen La Jolla serves lunch and dinner daily, as well as brunch on the weekend, which includes happy hour priced mimosas.
