welcome to iris food and spirits!

nestled across from the beautiful lagoon at torrey pines reserve in del mar, iris food and spirits matches the scenery with contemporary american updates to world food, a true 'melting pot' cuisine.
enjoy lunch or dinner served with casual professionalism on our covered patio or in our dining room, both with spectacular views of the lagoon. chose from our extensive lists of handcrafted beers and wines to complement your food, or just watch nature play out for you as the sun sets...
chef/owner tommy golden has been involved in the san diego dining scene since he moved here from boston almost 20 years ago, opening awardwinning restaurants parkhouse eatery in hillcrest, in 1995 and beachgrass cafe in solana beach in 2000.
deciding to move on to a new project, tommy sold his two restaurants, and along with his brother edd, found this fabulous spot for iris, in del mar in 2007.
our menus change often, retaining some favorites throughout the year. we use local ingredients and organics as much as possible, along with the best that the rest of the world has to offer.
