When you think of camping, what image comes to mind? Childhood fishing? Building a campfire? Roasting s’mores? This classically nostalgic activity is about gathering those closest to you for a weekend of connecting, eating and drinking. After all, don’t we all know that a camping trip done right revolves around food… and the campfire? That’s the exact feeling, memory and emotion Carlsbad’s most unique restaurant, Campfire, is bringing to all who gather there.

John Resnick, a veteran in the San Diego culinary scene, bundled up all of the aforementioned warm-and-fuzzies as well as the smoky, soulful tastes of the campfire to bring this sensory experience to Northern San Diego. Resnick’s deeply rooted history and love for the ocean, outdoors and yes, food, has brought his passion from Point Loma to Little Italy and finally, to its permanent home in Carlsbad. Read along while Resnick shares his inspirations, passions and the road that led him to opening up his long awaited dream, Campfire.

Pull up a map of Italy. Now zoom in on the Southern end and keep your eyes peeled for a string of islands near the tip of the boot. These tiny volcanic jewels are the Aeolian Islands, one of which is the ruggedly beautiful Salina, home to the family-owned Principe di Salina—a 12-room boutique hotel that feels like a luxury private villa, overlooking the Mediterranean. 

Open from April through October, Principe di Salina is the kind of place you picture when you dream about a getaway far, far, away from your cubicle. Between the infinity pool, Sicilian-inspired decor and meals alongside deep blue sea views from your own private terrace—excuse us while we go look for flights…
