Rustic Root Rooftop

Get some Vitamin D while you dine on San Diego’s best patios!

We have perfect weather in San Diego, there’s no doubt about that. We’re lucky enough have the option of dining outdoors. Rustic Root, brought to you by the RMD group, is the perfect place to brunch or lunch it up!

On a sunny day, enjoy views of the San Diego skyline. Rustic Root serves up rustic-American cuisine paired with craft cocktails by mixologist Garth Flood. The 500-square foot downstairs has an old-fashioned bar with eclectic decor. But the real charmer is the rooftop bar.

This summer Rustic Root has some exciting events lined up:
