Wheat & Water specializes in wood-fired pizza, shared plates, healthy salads & charcuterie.

Featuring a variety of beer from local and national breweries, wines ranging from California and Europe, and a cocktail list of originals and our favorite classics.

Perfect for morning coffee, lunch, happy hour, dinner, late night & Sunday brunch.

Wheat & Water opened in November 2016 with a mission to keep things simple – tasty eats, great drinks and stellar service. We believe food tastes better when it’s made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, and it’s even more satisfying when it features familiar flavors that remind you of home. Be it an old favorite or a fresh, first bite, we hope our guests create new memories while sharing meals with friends and family.

About Chef Christian Fiol

Christian Fiol is the kind of chef who knows how to create delicious food through thoughtfully including ingredients from his past, passion and personality into each dish. He’s added flavors from his grandmother’s kitchen in TJ and introduced new techniques gleaned from experiences working in top San Diego kitchens like Cucina Urbana and Galaxy Taco. Locals love his Brussels Sprouts & Potatoes in chile de arbol vinaigrette or his Mexican-influenced pizza with braised pork in salsa verde. With each new bite, guests rave about his Spanish Octopus and house specials like Yellowtail Crudo or Steak Frites. Wheat & Water is both lucky and happy to have him as Executive Chef, and we know you’ll join us in looking forward to what he creates in the future.
