A Forward Idea in Dining

AVANT is open 4pm – 10pm, Thursday through Saturday.

Venture forward with bright new flavors fresh from the sea, farm, and garden. Savor cocktails, wines, and beers uniquely created with an artisan’s touch. Experience what tomorrow tastes like.

Lively and sophisticated with a dash of daring, AVANT focuses on unpretentious, approachable cuisine with homegrown culinary touches paired with handcrafted classic cocktails, local craft beer, and limited production wines from around the world.

AVANT draws on the best of wine country dining – inspired culinary exploration, leisurely socializing, and the freshest of seasonal ingredients – and moves it forward with a contemporary California mindset. Our culinary team serves vibrant, creative dishes and artisan libations that embrace items foraged, farmed, hunted, and fished. With an inviting setting defined by indoor/outdoor design, dynamic spaces, and social settings, AVANT is a San Diego dining experience you don't want to miss.

AVANT Table 65, a private demonstration kitchen, offers small groups of up to 14 direct access to AVANT’s chefs, their secrets to spectacular results, as well as private events in the intimate space. To learn more about AVANT Table 65, click here.

Our garden is more bountiful and aromatic than ever. Join the AVANT team prior to dinner for a tour of the beautiful Chef's Garden and see where food you is coming from. Tours are weekly, Thursday – Saturday at 4:00pm.
