OCEANSIDE— Masters Kitchen and Cocktail, whose burger made Eater's list of ones to try right now, just rolled out a new seasonal menu from executive chef Chris Gallo (Bertrand at Mr. A's, Lodge at Torrey Pines); his beloved applewood-smoked Duroc pork chop with chorizo cornbread, broccolini and poached grapes stays, but fresh plates include spring vegetable risotto with ramp puree, English peas, spring onion and poached egg and a catch of the day with lemongrass tea broth, rice noodles and green papaya salad. Meanwhile Masters' happy hour, available from 3 to 6 p.m. on weekdays, is a worthy one, with $6 mules, craft beer and plates that range from crispy Brussels sprouts with bacon, pecorino and reduced balsamic to duck confit tacos.

EAST VILLAGE— Stella Public House is now open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The indoor/outdoor wood-fired pizza spot, which opened last fall, includes most of its dinner favorites on the lunch menu; a daily special, from a small plate to a salad, will be offered with the purchase of any pizza.
