The Land and Water Company ~ Carlsbad

Land and Water Company logo

The Land and Water Company is a new Sushi restaurant in Carlsbad. It is located in the old Twin Inns building (or the old Ocean House space if your not as old as me) at 2978 Carlsbad Boulevard, #110, Carlsbad

Land and Water Company is lead by Chef Rob Ruiz, an Oceanside local, with 17 years experience as a Chef. Chef Rob has worked locally at Sushi on the Rock and more recently as Executive Sushi Chef for Harney Sushi in Oceanside.

I would call the food Non-traditional Sushi with a focus on sustainability. They are doing small plates to invite sharing. Everything possible is locally sourced and items like the chips and Kimchee are made in-house.

Large spacious interior with a lounge, bar, and dinning area. The staff did a lot of the finishing work themselves.

Tako ~ diver caught octopus, jalapeno, yuzu ponzo, shisho

everything was spot on. Just go…all I can say

We are lucky, we now have in my opinion 3 out of the 6 best sushi restaurants in San Diego in North County. They are sourcing right, community based, and each is different in style.

(no particular order)
