  • ALCE 101 Kitchen + Tequileria
    (858)-704-4465
    243 North Highway 101, Suite 7 Solana Beach, CA 92075, USA
    https://alce101.com/

    Alce 101 has been a lifetime in the making. It stems from Apple Valley, California in 1960.

    At age 6 my Father took me to Roy Rogers Museum in Apple Valley Ca. Roy was a partner of my Father’s and was known for his hunting skills. Also Roy was well known for preserving and repurposing ALL that he hunted. I never will forget the beauty and the feeling of NEVER wanting to hunt anything. I will also NEVER forget the giant beautiful MOOSE with a nick from the shot in his antler.

    In 2015, my wife and I were on our way to Palm desert and stopped into this random antique store. I was looking around for some time and found this massive object covered up in the corner. I asked the shop owner to let me take a look. He lifted the cover and there it was, that magnificent beauty of a moose “ALCE”. Neglected. Forgotten. Hidden in a corner.

    The shop owner showed us the certificate of authenticity and that was the MOOSE I had seen, the moose I fell in love with in a museum over 50 years ago. The nick on the antler from the shot and all.

    We were so amazed by him and wanted to give him a new life in our ALCE 101 Restaurant venture. We put our deposit down and eventually took him home to protect. He will live at the center of our bar in the Alce 101 restaurant. ALCE means MOOSE in Spanish.

    Each of these tastes of Santa Fe New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Guadalupe Valley and the local provisions of the California coast will be expertly partnered with our vast selection of tequilas, mezcals, wines, beers and beverages.

    Service will be our #1 PRIORITY, paralleled with the food. All will be set in a casual, elegant, social media-worthy atmosphere with a California/Southwest feel.

    “Our creative dining concept will kick start a new/old trend for North County restaurants, hopefully sending a message that San Diego creative dining with knowledgeable, smart and conscientious staff is back, as we raise the bar.” ~Brad Evarts

    Fidel's Little Mexico has been a San Diego landmark since the early '60s when owner Fidel Montanez came up with the idea to serve tacos at his busy barber shop.

    The shop was located in the heart of Eden Gardens, a small neighborhood in Solana Beach that was home to a number of Mexican families. The tacos sold like hotcakes, and before long, the place evolved into a neighborhood cantina.

    The business thrived and expanded as Fidel converted his two-story residence into three different levels, including a festive courtyard, a couple of bars and outdoor patios, and a taco bar.

    Today, Fidel's ranks among the top restaurants in San Diego County. Happy hour is offered four days a week in the large upstairs bar. Fidel's menu offers traditional favorites as well as house specialties that will transport you and your party South of the Border.

  • Tony’s Jacal
    (858) 755-2274
    621 Valley Ave, Solana Beach, CA 92075
    https://tonysjacalsd.com/

    It was immediately after World War II in 1946 that Tony and Catalina Gonzales decided to open a restaurant on the present site. Tony had just returned from military service and Catalina, who had contented herself with staying at home while Tony was away, persuaded him to allow her to open a Mexican restaurant right in his parents' home.

    Open at first only on weekends, the modest establishment could seat just 26 persons. Catalina did the cooking and Tony helped serve. Soon the word about their chiles rellenos, turkey tacos and other tasty food spread throughout the area and even as far north as Los Angeles. Travelers and local residents would line up outside for long periods of time as they waited to be served.

    Soon the Gonzaleses realized that they would have to extend their business days to accommodate the hungry diners. Tony's Jacal, or “old building,” was enlarged several times during the intervening years and the present six-day week was established. Now the restaurant is open every day but Tuesday.

    Traditional Mexican dishes are prepared with mild or hot seasonings to please the discriminating palate. The menu also includes some American entrees.

    Tony passed away May 1, 1974, and Catalina passed on April 24, 2000. The tradition of serving fine Mexican food is being carried on by their two daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

    The Gonzales family is proud of their cuisine and the years of devoted service they have given their customers, many of whom return regularly for the chiles rellenos and other Mexican favorites.
