Below is from their website…
Allure is a family-owned and operated restaurant that strives to be a restaurant that San Diego can be proud of. Featuring the seasonal, unique food from Executive Chef Melissa Nakouzi and the innovative cocktails from her husband Carl, the General Manager, both are San Diego natives that have a passion for quality food and service. The couple opened Allure Restaurant to the public in March of 2014.
Making nearly everything from scratch, they pride themselves on their flavors. Serving seasonal New American cuisine, there’s a taste on the menu for just about everyone. Perfect for parties, meetings, or special occasions with a private upstairs mezzanine, Allure is a refined and elegant space that is also ideal for a romantic evening.
Allure served as the host site of Carl and Melissa’s wedding and now with the two welcoming their baby boy, Phoenix, this past January, they are very excited to see their restaurant grow along with their family.
So treat yourself, and come discover the hidden gem that is Allure Restaurant!
