The Red Door is open 7 days a week we serve lunch, dinner, & brunch on Sundays.  Our closing time varies depending on menu item availability, which happens when you serve what you harvest that day.

MENU

We aim to feed the public the most nourishing  organic food our farm  & San Diego's small, independently owned farms & ranches can provide.  The Menu is driven by the harvest coming from The Red Door farm, and the seasons wont quit changing so the menu keeps changing too.

THE STORY

ABOUT US

In 2011 owners Tom and Trish Watlington, had survived two nutty years in business with Red Door.  They loved the neighbors and the community they’d created, but felt they had wandered far from their roots of 1980’s organic gardeners and homesteaders.  They refused to ignore the destruction of creatures, people & planet wrought by factory farming, processed food and overfishing in addition the detrimental effects those practices have on the ability to serve nourishing & healthful food for every guest.

 

They made a commitment: if they couldn’t grow it themselves or buy it locally, humanely treated & sustainable harvested, it wasn’t hitting the table.  With a new management team they set out to create a business that would be dynamic with its positive impact on the community & planet.

THE TEAM

v

The Red Door is steered and overseen by two of the most committed, caring, passionate people in the industry. Incredibly young to be such strong leaders  they have a combined 30 plus years in food and beverage. Operating on the premise that real hospitality requires true “servants’ hearts” they earn the friendships of guests and neighbors who return again and again.

 

General Manager Justin leads the team and manages the operation, overseeing both restaurants The Red Door & The Wellington (our sister location) and plays a key role in the restaurant’s personality. The kitchen is helmed by Executive Chef Karrie Hills.

 

Owner Trish Watlington is also our resident farmer. She manages the garden and takes charge of social media, marketing and community outreach.
