For far too long, fast casual restaurants have disrespected the chicken and the egg from farm to table.
NO MORE, WE SAY. OUR MISSION: TO ELEVATE THE CHICKEN AND EGG TO THE HIGH PERCH ON WHICH THEY RIGHTFULLY BELONG.
In November 2015, the team from San Diego’s most acclaimed restaurant, Juniper & Ivy, inspired the culinary scene by introducing The Crack Shack in Little Italy. The goal was to bring the quality ingredients and high-end culinary focus of J&I to a fine-casual, outdoor setting open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Receiving national recognition during its first year of operations, The Crack Shack has expanded to Encinitas and will open soon in Costa Mesa, fulfilling its mission to bring the best, locally available ingredients to awesome open-air venues. The Crack Shack has redefined the concept of family friendly dining. The bocce ball court, full bar, and menu lend themselves to a setting where all ages and backgrounds want to spend time.
