We are thrilled to share with you Chefs Press, Inc.’s latest cookbook, TOP TABLES CORONADO: Celebrating the Island’s Favorite Restaurants and Recipes (Paperback, full color, 112 pages; $14.95; May 2010)
Coronado Island is one of San Diego’s premiere vacation destinations indeed, one of the most popular in the world. Each year, millions flock to enjoy Coronado’s warm, sandy beaches, its breathtaking ocean views, and its widely varied and exciting food scene. Perhaps most amazing is that despite the island’s relatively small size it is home to a stunning array of restaurants, wine bars, and gourmet shops that encompass nearly every taste, style, or ethnicity one can imagine. All this variety in one small place is part of what makes Coronado so enticing and so popular for both visitors and locals.
Of course, within this large collection of dining establishments, certain places stand out above the rest.
In TOP TABLES CORONADO, we give you a unique chance to experience the flavors of some of the Island’s most successful and beloved restaurants. This special edition showcases what Coronado has to offer everything from California Coastal Cuisine to Asian, Mexican, Italian, or Greek.
