Eating San Diego {Herb & Wood}

I have heard so much about this San Diego gem from J, my sister Co, and BIL Chris all who have dined at Herb & Wood in San Diego. I can honestly attest that this restaurant is a feast for the senses and the taste buds.

I was also so happy to meet Lydia and Doug McLaughlin of Real Housewives of Orange County fame. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a Housewives devotee and a BRAVO obsessed-watcher.

I must agree with the review from the San Diego Union-Tribune:

As the debut design credit for Christopher Puffer, Herb & Wood is truly the first of its kind. Brian Malarkey’s restaurant partner and general manager brought Southern charm and feminine whimsy with live greenery, custom channel-back banquettes, tufted leather booths, and artist Johnny Lane’s playful modern portraits of women winking at guests. The open and airy Little Italy restaurant feels endless with a lounge area, a dining room, and a patio with a double-sided fireplace and plush couch seating. 2210 Kettner Blvd., Little Italy. (619) 955-8495 or

If you are in the San Diego area, you must dine or at least cocktail at Herb & Wood. Tell them Uptown Acorn sent you.


Herb & Wood, y'all!


  1. Good morning, Ron! Well, I know you were in hog's heaven running into Doug and Lydia. I know how obsessed you are with Real Housewives. Looks like you and J had an amazing trip! Having a wonderful time in Savannah, but it is so hot and humid, just like back home. Have a great day! xoxo

  2. How fun you got to meet and have a pic taken with Lydia and Doug. This place looks like an awesome place for both your eyes and palette. Yum and pretty all in one place. Glad you are enjoying your summer break and travels.


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
