Morada Restaurant Review

: Morada ("house of many rooms") nods to The Inn's historic past, as Rancho Santa Fe's very first building, La Morada, circa the 1920s, remains intact as a part of its main structure. A fireplace cozies up both the bar and dining room, while lunches may be enjoyed on the umbrella-dotted patio overlooking The Inn’s sprawling lawns and mature gardens. The California cuisine is a celebration of San Diego's local farms, fine meats and sustainable seafood, and Pacific fresh catch from Baja to Alaska. At dinner, traditional starters include shrimp cocktail and Mexican tortilla soup. Continue with more classics such as The Ranch fried chicken, grass-fed beef burger or harvest vegetable pot pie with Baja shrimp. Seasonal creations might range from grilled swordfish to “drunken” lamb rack. End the evening with the crème brûlée or a take on s’mores. Wines from a largely California-centric expansive list are astutely paired with the food.
