Coming Soon!

Palihotel San Diego features Saint James French Diner a dining room that blends the approachable nature of an American diner with the subtle elegance of a French bistro. The bill of fare coupled with the high-energy of 1960’s French pop and garage rock is an homage to roadside food halls in southern France, where bee-hived waitresses serve tables of hungry truckers the Plat du Jour.

The menu is hearty and simple, yet refined by nature. It’s shared mussels and a beer at lunch and it’s a pork chop and ratatouille served with two martinis at night. It’s sensible, unpretentious, and totally chic. As an inclusive neighborhood eatery that hosts travelers and locals alike, you’re guaranteed a tasty meal, a refreshing beverage, and an ambiance that says, Oui! You’re welcome here.
