The Red Door brings together local farmers, chefs, brewers & fishmonger to show what it takes to provide local, organic, sustainable cuisine & the talented people who make it happen

EVENTS

The Red Door hosts an event every 45 minutes from 4am to 11pm. That's not true however we do host special occasions from wedding receptions, to graduations, or holiday celebrations.

CONTACT

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, as certain ingredients from the garden are limited in supply.  Its cool & annoying sorry.

MENU

We aim to feed the public the most nourishing  organic food our farm  & San Diego's dynamic range of 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.

GIVE A GIFT

Gift cards are available for purchase at Treatful.com - a partner site to Open Table.  Who has time to give a hardcopy gift these days, log on to Treatful.com and a gift card will be sent straight to the recipient, who can redeem it just by showing their server on their phone.

OUR SOURCES

The Red Door is committed to serving only locally grown, organic and sustainable produce.  Whatever we do not harvest from the Garden we source from a range of talented & local independent farms.  Learn More.

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.
