Cambridge is a finalist for an award!  Woot!

Please indulge us for a moment while we take a little moment to brag….

Cambridge was nominated and is now a finalist in the San Diego Business Journal Family Owned Businesses Awards!  We couldn’t be more proud of this incredible team of people that we have surrounding us everyday.  And, while at it’s core, the owners are a mother/daughter team, we truly believe that each member of our team is part of our extended family.  We are ever grateful for this opportunity to even be recognized as a finalist…but we are even more grateful to be walking through life with some of the greatest people, every.single.day.  <3  If you see one of those sweet Cambridge folks walking around, take a moment to congratulate them for all of their hard work!!

Behind the Red Door

The symbolism of the color ‘red’ has transcended time, culture and ecology. Mother Nature even uses it to say, “Hey! Notice Me! …I standout for a reason.” Our western culture uses it to make important objects and structures stand apart and be discernible, such as stop lights or signs. Adaptations from the East have fused together the ideal that a red front door is good luck. So naturally, you can imagine why a restaurant named “The Red Door” physically and metaphorically tells native San Diegan and visiting restaurateurs, alike, in its undeniably bold shade, “STOP and check me out! Your taste buds just got lucky!”

If you’re looking for a dining experience as brilliant, yet subtly elegant, as the many shades of ‘red,’ venture into the trendy, but understated, neighborhood of Mission Hills. Amongst an array of truly unique and eclectic restaurants and boutiques lies this gem of an eatery.

As you walk into its cozy quarters, life through friendly banter and soft “Mm mms” fill the room.  The perfect place to impress a prospective partner or mingle amongst friends.  Its quaint interior is usually packed to the brim with guests, making reservations on holidays and prime dinning hours is a must.  Otherwise you will miss out!Red Door Restaurant & Wine Bar

The atmosphere teeters between comfortably-casual to semi-formal, with its simple, but chic, décor and front-house layout. But I’ll let you in on a not-so-secret…the real magic happens in the back, where locally grown, family farmed, produce meets masterfully prepared proteins. On a personal note, if you’re a fan of “the other white meat,” I highly recommend ordering the Braised Pork Cheeks for a starter…You’ll wish it never ends. There is also an impressive wine list at your disposal—or I guess in this case I should say at your consumption. And, if you’re having trouble making a selection, the friendly and attentive staff is readily available to help guide you through this culinary excursion.

Let’s not forget dessert! If you can still ingest one more exquisite creation it has to be one of these delicate and decadent pieces of art, made with only the freshest seasonal ingredients.

If you’re mouth isn’t watering by now, let me tell you mine is…and as having experienced this first hand, it’s a must-do for foodies hungry for a taste of San Diego’s finest.

Add it to your bucket list, tell Siri to bookmark it… it’s that good! If you’re in love with food like I am, then you should never settle for run-of-the-mill. So treat yourself! You deserve it. Make it a monthly routine? Meet style, sophistication, innovation and flavor all at the same place: “The Red Door.”
