Death by Tequila. We know, we know, muy oscuro. We don’t mean it literally, of course. After all, our vibe is all about passion, community and good times. As the saying goes, “los muertos al cajón y los vivos al fiestón” (the dead to the coffin and the living to the party). We’re so particular about great produce that we insist on growing our own at local heritage farm, Aschbrenner Acres. Small batches of special varieties you won’t find anywhere else. They may not be the easiest to grow, but they’re packed with flavor. Each day, we roll up our sleeves and get our hands in the dirt. We crunch into this, bite into that and pick only the plumpest, ripest, tastiest organic vegetables, gently seasoned by the ocean air.

    Herb & Sea is phenomenal! We celebrated our anniversary here and it did not disappoint. Our server Amanda was so sweet and attentive. We tried the Roasted Oysters & Bone Marrow, the Mussel Toast, and the Sea bass. Everything was so flavorful and fresh! The cocktail selection was great as well. The ambiance is casual, but refined. We love the beach vibe of Encinitas and we will definitely return to Herb & Sea next time we are in Southern California!

    We ordered The set of four salsas and all were delicious! I also enjoyed the poblano empanadas and the skinny margaritas. The only disappointing dish was the Mexican corn which really tasted like it came out of a can, and not fresh even though it is now in season. I would definitely not order that dish again- Poor value for the price!
