MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Nolita Hall brings new meaning to “flights” of beer, as it is directly in the flight path of the San Diego International Airport. This amiable hot spot doesn’t waste time with superficial changes; instead, they play it up with a board announcing the origin city of all planes in flight. It’s just one sign that this destination, where TVs show sports and shuffleboards await competition, is all about having a good time. Wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas take center stage and are the perfect chaser to the 20-something, mostly local beers on tap. The Y Tu Brute salad is a delicious take on the Caesar, while charred sugar snap peas and baby carrots go to show that this kitchen is full of surprises. Just hold on tight to that brew when a Boeing rumbles overhead.
