Chef Hanna Tesfamichael opened Hanna’s Gourmet as a full-service restaurant in 2011, three years after launching the business as a catering company. Located in San Diego’s North Park neighborhood, Hanna’s cozy bistro offers a seasonal menu of world cuisines — as well as a stellar weekend brunch. Menu highlights include the light and fluffy prosciutto spinach ricotta omelette and the tortellini with sweet caramelized apples. In the dessert department, you won’t want to miss Hanna’s famous carrot cake or the three-layer cake dressed in a candied kumquat sauce.
Bonus: Diners also have the the option to purchase Hanna’s Gourmet sauces, stews and sides al carte, which can be frozen for later use.
