LA JOLLA— A.R. Valentien's artisan table dinners, held Thursdays at The Lodge at Torrey Pines, are family-style, four course feasts served at a communal table on the restaurant's terrace. They are awesome. Next Thursday, December 11, the menu is centered around wild game and includes wild boar ragu with Tallegio cheese tortellini and venison medallions on chicken liver croutons. The dinner starts at 6:30 pm and includes wine; call 858-453-4420 to reserve. [EaterWire]
