Jay's Gourmet Restaurant: "Italian with a family touch" Jay's Gourmet Tip by BLewJay

Jay's Gourmet, Carlsbad: 1 reviews and 0 photos

If you blink, you'll miss this restaurant...but the smell of the food and the lines waiting to get in to eat will bring you back. This is a family run business which has many loyal followers, the food is fantastic and the atmosphere is cozy.

Favorite Dish: We started off with a homemade bowl of Clam Chowder (clams, pototoes, onions, corn, bacon) which was simply delicious. For the entrée, LJ selected the Breaded Shrimp Parmigiana (breaded jumbo shrimp pan fried then sautéed in marinara sauce & served over linguini with mozzarella cheese) while I had Linguini Imperial (diced jumbo shrimp & and baby clams sautéed in a red cream sauce and served over linguini).
