Grub's Up! The New Restaurant in Town

If there’s one trend that will forever make San Diego foodies take a daring trip it is the opening of a new hotel restaurant. Some of the best restaurants in San Diego are located within noted chain hotels and posh boutique hotels across town, and the new Vela Restaurant at Hilton San Diego Bayfront is no exception to this local rule, according to our media partner

The towering Hilton boasts panoramic views of the glistening San Diego Bay and a location set mere steps away from the swanky edges of the Gaslamp Quarter. This new-again San Diego Hilton is home to one of the newest culinary escapes where flavor and zest reign top on the list. Sweeping to the right through the vast hotel lobby, guests proceed down a set of escalators to find the spacious and elegant restaurant.

Vela was named after the Latin word for “sail” – and truly does provide a refined and exquisite journey for those in search of epicurean gratification. Inside, a gray and cream hued marble top bar brightened by six opaque, globular chandeliers invites patrons to enjoy a signature cocktail such as the Blood Orange martini – a blend of rum and vodka with fresh blood orange, or the Acai Blueberry – an infusion of blueberry vodka, crushed blueberries, a splash of fresh squeezed lemon juice and garnished with lavender, before being escorted to the table.
