the Bar at Rancho Bernardo Inn Restaurant Review

: Rancho Bernardo Inn called in the talents of Esteban Interiors to re-create its sports bar into a striking European-style brasserie with banquettes, reclaimed-wood communal tables and neutral tones that evoke a rustic, elegant feel. The kitchen serves up playful bar food like mini hot dogs, grilled cheese with tomato basil soup, and the sloppy "Joseph" ground beef sliders (chef Nicolas Bour is no longer at the restaurant). Other nibbles include wings piquant from sriracha, chili cheese fries, and shoestring onion rings in a delicate batter. We like the short rib chili with pickled jalapeño peppers. Salmon fish ‘n’ chips and margherita pizzas make for heartier fare. Innovative cocktails abound, like the Broken Heart, a refreshing sipper of Herradura Reposado and Cointreau mixed with passion fruit, blood orange and pomegranate purées. Plasma TVs deliver sporting events, or try your hand at darts or shuffleboard on the vintage table.
