insideOUT is Hillcrest's elevated restaurant and lounge and San Diego's only urban oasis!
Situated in the eye-catching Eitol Towers, and adjoined by the new Harvey Hillcrest apartments, insideOUT is a casual elegant restaurant where you walk inside to be out. The venue includes a main dining room that leads to an outdoor open-air atrium with walkways, seating nooks, and a striking water feature for guests to enjoy our ambiance. Throughout the year, insideOUT is known for its elevated pop-up installations for guests to immerse themselves and relax in our modern oasis.
The menu, curated by Executive Chef Johnny Duran, is updated seasonally to reflect his creative approach to California-Mediterranean inspired fare, using the freshest ingredients provided by our local purveyors. insideOUT provides individualized guest-focused service, respectful hospitality and is San Diego's premier LGBTQ-owned and operated restaurant.
