GENESIS KITCHEN + DRINKS is a local & seasonally sourced restaurant, bar and event space at Campus Point in San Diego, California
We offer a seasonal menu of locally sourced salads and sides, inventive sandwiches, artisanal pizzas, hearty entrées, and soups as well as a full coffee bar by UP AND ATOM COFFEE CO., 16 craft beers on tap, 11 wines by the glass, an array of craft cocktails and drinks, and local kombucha by Whalebird for lunch Monday through Friday with a happy-hour menu Thursdays and Fridays.
WE COOK FROM SCRATCH: Chef Rob starts with the freshest ingredients and prepares food using healthy cooking techniques. Soups, stocks, salsas, and sauces are made from scratch. Turkey and beef are roasted in-house for deli meat. When a dish calls for lemon juice, we squeeze lemons, not a bottle. Control over ingredients allows us to support your individual dietary needs.
SUSTAINABLE: We also practice responsible sourcing in other areas. We serve only cage free, certified humanely raised shell eggs; milk and dairy produced without synthetic hormones; sustainable seafood; and poultry and hamburgers raised without routine antibiotics. Bon Appetit is also one of the first large food service companies in the world to commit to eliminating plastic straws in all of our accounts by 2019.

Fresh Italian vegetables. That's the story and they're sticking to it. “First we drew a line in the dirt and said ‘let's plant here. And here. And here.’ Then we brought in soil experts, water analysts, weather gurus and told them ‘make it natural, no funny pellets, amend our soil in a good way.’ Meanwhile we germinated over 30 heirloom vegetable seeds from Italy, transplanted them in the Old World tradition, and planted them with our Italian ancestors in mind.”
Founded in 1990 in Los Angeles, Groundwork is a certified organic, fair trade roaster committed to community involvement and supporting small businesses around the globe. Their organic certification attests that our coffee and its community of growers are not exposed to harmful pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. In fact, all of Groundwork’s coffees and teas are not only certified organic, but they’re also fairly traded. What does this mean? It means that we pay above market to all of the growers with whom we work. It means that, from the ground up, our loyal customers can feel good knowing that their purchase didn’t come at the expense of the physical health or economic well-being
of the farmers and growers who brought it to market.
