The Patio on Goldfinch is sited less than ten miles from the original Patio on Lamont in San Diego’s Pacific Beach. This second eatery by the Patio Group was designed to provide a quintessential neighborhood restaurant to San Diego’s historic Mission Hills district.
The breezy and welcoming space features dual living walls flowing with lush fauna, creating multiple garden settings inside. Massive sliding windows and doors open fully, allowing the restaurant to function as one space from sidewalk to kitchen, with multiple zones blending from one to the next. Bespoke features include climbable bar shelving, a glazed cheese cave, custom bar lighting, and an overwhelming sense of exterior dining.
