Dominic's Table Heading Into Former Roppongi Space In La Jolla

February 13, 2018

The nearly 8,000 square-foot indoor/outdoor space at 875 Prospect Street in La Jolla that last housed Roppongi for nearly two decades has sat dormant for the past two years, but this Spring it will become Dominic's Table - an Italian/Mediterranean restaurant with a global influence.

After 17 years serving up Asian fusion food in La Jolla, Sami Ladecki's Roppongi shuttered in November 2015, leaving its space empty for more than 2 years before chef and restarateur Dominic Tedesco noticed it during a visit to San Diego last year. Tedesco - a frequent television culinary personality & former head chef for MGM Grand who was living and working in Las Vegas at the time - was in America's Finest City visiting a friend who was undergoing surgery when he spotted the prime restaurant location and it just felt all too right.

Chef Dominic Tedesco
Tedesco wants guests of Dominic's Table to feel more like they are visiting his home than a restaurant. The menu will be mostly Italian dishes with a Mediterranean-style raw bar and global comfort foods. The restaurant will offer a weekly-changing international menu with a handful of dishes from various regions around the world made as authentically as possible using fresh local ingredients. Dominic's Table will offer an expansive indoor dining area, a 2,300 square-foot outdoor patio with firepit seating, and a private dining room. Behind the bar, expect a menu of craft cocktails, beer by the bottle and draft, and an expansive wine list.

Dominic's Table is expected to open this March. For more information, visit the company's Facebook Page at
