‘Refreshing and bright’: Marisi debuts summer menu items 

As the sun emerges to brighten the best of La Jolla, Marisi has begun highlighting the best of the season with its summer menu.

Executive chef Cameron Ingle, focusing on light, fresh flavors incorporating seasonal ingredients from local growers, has prepared dinner dishes that pair best with the sunlit patio and summer cocktails from Vice President of Bar and Spirits Beau du Bois.

Start with the tomato crostino, with marinated tomatoes fresh from Chino Farms, roasted garlic ricotta and basil on grilled sourdough.

Or dive into scallops on the half shell, but leave the fork on the table: Shoot it to experience the cucumber and mint broth along with the creamy sweetness of the scallop. “It’s refreshing and bright,” Ingle said.

The housemade pastas include the new vongole, featuring squid ink linguini and littleneck clams; and the agnolotti, highlighting Chino Farms peas, mint and pistachio.

To complement Ingle’s summer fare, Marisi has brought back last summer’s ever-popular pornstar martini, bursting with fresh passionfruit and served with a sidecar of champagne.

The bar is also serving a new Adriatic spritz, sparkling with blanco tequila, Italian dry vermouth, lime and cucumber, along with the cantaloupe margarita.

Marisi, operated by the same group that established Puesto, is also showcasing its Marisi Italian pilsner, recently awarded bronze in the California State Fair’s 2024 Brewing Competition and brewed by Doug Hasker at Puesto Cerveceria.

Marisi’s summer menu is available through the season, but items will transition in a few weeks to feature new ingredients, so reserve a table here to experience it all.
