California Modern

Welcome to California Modern, where our passion is telling the San Diego story through food.

Welcome to California Modern

Executive chef, partner and chief storyteller Trey Foshee and his highly skilled team source locally grown or harvested products whenever possible, using them in seasonally-driven, inventive preparations that surprise and delight. Located on the lower level of George’s at the Cove, our ocean view dining room is contemporary yet comfortable, and our friendly, knowledgeable staff serve as guides to the many exciting choices available. If you’ve ever wondered what San Diego might taste like, we invite you to come have dinner with us.

Our menu allows for à la carte ordering, but our emphasis is on tasting menus where we invite our guests to be part of a conversation about the lifestyle, ingredients and sense of place that is San Diego.


The definitive California Modern experience

Simply put, TBL3 is a showcase of Chef Foshee’s distinctive food philosophy.

Named for the iconic ocean view “table three” where your meal will take place, TBL3 is a 12-14 course tasting experience where you put yourselves in our hands for the evening. There are no choices and no substitutions, just Chef Foshee and his team using all of their skills and creativity to bring you an experience that could not happen anywhere else – a playful, spontaneous encapsulation of time and place.


At its best, Foshee’s food was simple and precise, an efficient expression of the abundance that surrounds him.
