Housed in a brass-plated dining room in San Diego's Little Italy, Born & Raised brings a little glitz and glamour to the traditional steakhouse. Guests dine in tufted leather booths with swanky marble tops while under the watchful eye of their Patron Saint Eazy-E. There, diners are wowed by table-side preparations of their Cesar salad and steak tartare as well as classic cocktails. Of course, the star of the show is the meat. Their bone-in New York strips and ribeyes are dry-aged in house and come with extras that include smoky creamed kale and crispy smashed potatoes. A 45-foot walnut and Italian marble bar builds upon the art deco affair, pairing prime cuts with Martinis and Manhattans. For an open-air experience, the restaurant expands to a rooftop patio overlooking Little Italy.
