Paradisaea, Local Roots, Johnny Wahoo lead list of new San Diego restaurant openings

Paradisaea, a new dinner-only restaurant in La Jolla’s Bird Rock community, is now open.

The restaurant is owned by La Jolla residents Eric and Zoe Kleinbub, who named it after the genus of a species of six birds of paradise. The Kleinbubs have a combined background in restaurant and real estate development. A few years ago, they purchased the 1949-era “piano building” at 5680 La Jolla Blvd., originally designed by architect William Kesling. For many years, the building housed a piano store. With the Georgis & Mirgorodsky design firm, the Kleinbubs renovated the building and have given it a colorful tropical theme and décor.

Paradisaea’s culinary director is Mark Welker, whose background includes a decade-long tenure at New York’s Eleven Madison Park. His chef de cuisine is Gabriel Bonis, who served as sous chef under Jason Knibb at La Jolla’s Nine-Ten for the past 10 years. Signature dishes include roasted chicken with lemon-dijon butter, housemade pasta dishes like tagliatelle with uni, beef tartare with crispy sunchokes and garlic togarashi and house-churned ice cream.

Paradisaea is open for dinner from 3 p.m. Wednesdays-Sundays. Soon to open in the Paradisaea building are two sister businesses: Dodo Bird Donuts, an all-day café with doughnuts, sandwiches, coffees and teas, and Tropical Punch, a home, apparel and beauty products gift store. Visit paradisaea.com.
