Four and half years after starting a catering business in La Jolla, friends Ray Penfield and Craig Sewall grew their love of food and success of Promiscuous Fork catering into a Windansea restaurant.
Last month, the Promiscuous Fork restaurant opened on La Jolla Boulevard near Westbourne Street in Windansea. The small eatery has both indoor and outdoor seating, and a simple and flavorful menu absent of fried foods.
The menu and simple decor have a beachy feel. There are stools through the parimeter of the restaurant and one giant wood table in the center encouraging neighborhood banter and discussion of menu items.
When we stopped in on Friday afternoon, we heard a buzz about the BBBLT: a bacon, bacon, bacon, lettuce, tomato and baconnaise on Texas toast sandwich. And were drawn to the La Jolla Plate: garlic herb chicken, coconut-jalapeno rice and macaroni salad.
Promiscuous Fork also serves up local draft beers. Right now drafts include Stone Pale Ale, Ballast Point Pale Ale and Iron Fist Renegade Blonde.
Prices range from $6 to $12 for dishes and $6 for drafts.
