San Diego County’s only residential marina neighborhood, the Coronado Cays is a lovely beach community of beautiful waterfront homes, condos, townhomes, and off-water single-family homes. The Cays are truly one of a kind: a resort-like neighborhood in the celebrated city of Coronado, situated on a narrow peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and San Diego Bay.

Haute diggity! We present your new ballpark indulgence.
Leave batting practice to all those new super-slugging Padres. Our spring training consisted of working up an appetite for the hautest dogs ever to hit San Diego. In tribute to America’s favorite pastime, Petco Park-adjacent Rare Form gives the no-frills frankfurter a gourmet upgrade worthy of the glammed-out eatery’s high-design sensibilities. Chef Aldo Negrete makes egg-enriched poppy seed-buns from scratch and custom-grinds a blend of pork and beef to craft the ultimate sausage. But, really, it’s all about the toppings. (Ketchup? Please. CH Projects—and Arsalun Tafazoli—are behind the resto.) The Haole has crispy bacon, roasted pineapple, and charred jalapeno, while the Abe Froman sports peppers, dill pickles, onions, tomato, celery salt, and the neon-green relish that signifies its real-deal Chicago status. Wanna hit a home run? Show your S.D. pride and take a bite out of The Murph, a bacon-wrapped, house-made mustard-garnished flavor bomb piled with caramelized onions and spicy jalapenos. You can hang a star on that baby!
