10 Years in the Making

Whisknladle Hospitality started simply with the serendipitous meeting of one talented chef [Ryan Johnston] and one young entrepreneur [Arturo Kassel] in 2006. Convinced that what San Diego needed was a farm-fresh restaurant that served from-scratch cooking without all of the fine dining fuss, the pair opened Whisknladle in the heart of La Jolla in 2008. This back-to-basics approach to cooking – or gourmet comfort food – has firmly planted Whisknladle in the hearts of locals and tourists alike.

We continue to live by believe that good food made simply is the most important aspect of each of our restaurants. 

“You don’t have to cook complicated or fancy masterpieces, 
just good food from fresh ingredients.” 

- Julia Child

Whisknladle Hospitality has grown from one ambitious, little restaurant to a humble restaurant group with never-ending ideas to continue bringing good food, good wine & great people together. We are proud to offer our guests truly unique epicurian experiences at Whisknladle, Catania and Milagro Winery. We are also thrilled to announce two brand new concepts coming your way in 2018: Park Commons and Gravity Heights.
