CARLSBAD'S BEST CHEFS
Chandler's menu features California cuisine expertly crafted with fresh, farm-to-table ingredients to satisfy the foodie in all of us.
Highlighting North County’s coastal culture, fresh seafood has a superior place in the Chandler's Restaurant kitchen. Our culinary team takes advantage of locally sourced ingredients, readily available here in SoCal, for a seasonal approach to everything from apps to desserts. Delight in dynamic presentations that are familiar but never ordinary, and give a sense of coastal San Diego in every bite, with stunning sunsets served daily.
“I want each guest to taste the essence of the coast through their palate. Food is so much more than fuel for the body; we create memories every time we gather around the table. Every meal is a memory, and it should reflect of our laid-back, SoCal vibe.” ~ Chef Mark Dowen

Meet Chef Jason! Locally raised, Jason grew up in North County and has a great passion for his hometown. He loves the perfect weather, the ocean, and having accessibility to use the best produce, seafood and meats in conceptualizing his culinary creations.
Completely self-taught, Jason has been working in restaurants across North County San Diego for over a decade. His passion for cooking started very young, helping his parents prepare meals at home for he and his brothers. And at 16 years of age, Jason landed his first job at a restaurant.
When Jason is not in the kitchen you can find him outdoors enjoying his favorite past times: gardening, fishing, hiking, and camping.
