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.
I love this piece
Pan-seared Steal Head ~ Berries, maple glaze, mizuna greens, creme fraiche
(I loved this dish. I loved all the dishes, but this was my favorite by a smidgon)
Spanish Mackerel and Albacore Nigiri
Tuna Poivre ~ Black peppered-seared tuna, potato dashi, house-made potato chips, micro Asian greens
My Tako being sliced paper thin
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)
The Land and Water Company ~ Carlsbad
Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub ~ Oceanside
Kaito Sushi ~ Encinitas
I’ll leave the other one up for debate.
