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.
