This is the perfect place to go if you’re craving some Los Angeles vibes (especially on a date night). It’s cool, modern, and their food is killer. Just check out that wedge salad above- YUM!! If you are in the mood for something a little more special join them on the last Sunday of the month for the Chef Special Paella– prepared on site and paired with two glasses of the ‘Heart of the House’ Sangria.

2 Cork Fire Kitchen

Temecula Creek Inn is a keystone establishment in Temecula known for their gorgeous golf course and resort. But, their recently renovated restaurant, Cork Fire Kitchen just finished a renovation including a stunning new patio with bright yellow couches which are totally #instaworthy and we think the restaurant itself deserves some attention.

Cork Fire Kitchen prides itself on their partnerships with local farmers, which can be found listed on their website, and they follow the Seafood Watch from the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s guide to sustainable seafood. Not to mention the fact that they are working on a new garden just for the chef!

If you love fresh, innovative dining that is artistically prepared you will love dining at Cork Fire Kitchen. Head there this summer and try out some of the amazing cocktails and entrees on their Summer Menu!

3 PokePort

Temecula hasn’t fallen behind on the Poke trend. In fact there are a handful of new places in town to try this trendy food out. But, I think PokePort is the BEST! There’s tons of options on the menu and they even offer a sushi burrito! Watch out Los Angeles… Temecula is going hipster!

4 The Baked Bear

Baked Bear just opened their amazing ice cream sandwich shop in Temecula. You can even get a donut ice cream sandwich. #temecularestaurant #temeculaicecream

If you know anything about my munchkins, you know we can’t resist a good dessert. And we definitely can’t resist the gooey chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches at Baked Bear. We may not have been the first town to get one of these delicious ice cream shops, but we’re sure glad it’s one of the new restaurants in Temecula. I recommend trying their salted caramel ice cream in between two delicious fudge brownies. But, my son Shea would try convincing you the donut ice cream sandwich is the real winner (pictured above). Try it out and then let us know which is your favorite combination.

Ever feel like escaping to Tuscany?? Well if you head to Robert Renzoni Winery to check out their gorgeous new restaurant, Mama Rose’s, you will feel like you are in Italy. The winery is located on DePortola off the main drag of wineries on Rancho California and the alfresco dining has a gorgeous view of the rolling hills surrounding the property. You feel as if you are in a whole new world.

Although this is actually a new restaurant in Canyon Lake, it’s worth the drive. The ahi tacos and short ribs are both quickly becoming local favorites. Plus, their drinks come in mason jars and how many of us can really resist that?

If you’re missing pineapple soft serve from Disneyland, this new Temecula restaurant can help you out. They offer Dole Soft Serve! WooHoo!!! Besides this, they have tons of great options ranging from breakfast to poke. Definitely make sure you save room for their freshly made malasadas. I think they are better than the ones I have tried in Hawaii 😉

Flatbreads, cheese boards, and a beautiful open air winery setting… what more needs to be said? Learn more about Avensole Winery + the Marketplace Restaurant in my review here. Avensole Winery also has a very unique cheese pairing that they offer in their tasting room that is worth a try and if you are lucky you may even be able to convince them to let you try and feed their incredible koi. Did you know their pond was actually blessed by a monk. Pretty cool, right?
