A pleasant stroll from the Bay, W San Diego is downtown and close to the Gaslamp Quarter, Petco Park, the convention center, and Little Italy. A short drive will bring you to surf-worthy beaches and the famous San Diego Zoo. You can even day-trip to Mexico. Toast the evening with drinks and romance your taste buds at Rice, or take in brilliant skyline views and warm your toes in the sand on our rooftop Beach bar. Then, schedule a morning unwind at Away Spa.
Welcome to RICE. In the comfort of our plush private candlelit booths separated by moody black tassels, unfurl our gastronomical atlas of a menu and take a savoir faire traipse around the celestial ball.
In the summer of 2009, RICE welcomed Executive Chef Rocío Varela to its kitchen. In 2007, Chef Valera captured the hearts of TV audiences as she opened her kitchen to reality cameras as Executive Chef at Parker Meridien Palm Springs for the BRAVO series "Welcome to the Parker." Now she tempts your palate with her delectable menus that reflect her love for Latin, French and Asian flavors and are inspired by her Puerto Rican heritage.
Chef Varela's own dietary restrictions have also inspired her to include several gluten-free options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With the arrival of Varela and the unveiling of her new menus, RICE promises to keep taste buds in bliss.
