whisknladle1

The atmosphere at Whisknladle on Wall Street in La Jolla is probably the best example of laid back, classy-casual dining, maybe in the whole city.  The covered patio is just gorgeous and airy yet comfortable and cozy- read: “romantic”.  They have these great storm curtains, I’ve been there for lunch during a storm and it was one of the best afternoons I think I’ve ever spent.
