This week the BERKMAN office was buzzing with preparations for the exclusive VIP Grand Opening celebration of Toast Enoteca & Cucina, the second concept from local restaurateur and culinary visionary Martin Gonzalez. Thank you to all of our wonderful guests, including Adrian Gonzalez from the San Diego Padres and Steve Ward from VH1’s Tough Love, for attending the Grand Opening and for supporting Martin’s entrepreneurial spirit!

Located at 927 J Street, in the charming East village neighborhood of San Diego’s famous downtown, Toast Enoteca e Cucina features more than 400 exceptional wines for tasting or purchase, many of which are traditionally difficult to come by in San Diego. Guests can indulge in a variety of these exquisite wines in small servings from state-of-the-art wine dispensing Enomatic machines (pictured below). This innovative system creates an interactive tasting experience that is ideal for an evening out with friends and family in the charming East Village neighborhood.

The wine isn’t the only thing that keeps taste buds tingling! Toast Enoteca & Cucina also features a mouth-watering menu with Italian-inspired dishes. Toast Enoteca & Cucina is NOW OPEN to the public. Grab your friends and kick off the weekend with world-class wine tasting and delicious food at Toast Enoteca e Cucina!
