“The Windmill Food Hall will deliver an exciting, new concept in one of North County’s iconic buildings,” he added.

“Whether guests come to JRDN as a local or a tourist, with our beachside location, you feel like you are on vacation” said David Warner, executive chef. “I wanted to reinforce that feeling by creating a sense of discovery with the new menu.”

“The dishes blend California cuisine, with its focus on seasonal ingredients, with Japanese and Baja flavors in surprising ways,” he added.

The new menu encourages guests to eat family style with shareable items and small plates while enjoying the ocean views.
