Paradisaea building drawing


Birdfood Restaurant Group is comprised of Paradisaea, Tropical Punch, and Dodo Bird Donuts in La Jolla California.

The owners, longtime La Jolla residents, always dreamed of creating a small, special restaurant – a place to come together and enjoy dinner, cocktails, and the company of friends and family in an inspired atmosphere. When the landmark William Kesling “Piano Building” in Bird Rock went on the market, they decided to bring their vision to life. They transformed and restored the iconic structure with the help of La Jolla based B&R Architects and interior design firm Georgis & Mirgorodsky. Paradisaea is an expression of their travels around the world, combined with an authentic connection to the local community. The goal has always been to create a beautiful, comfortable space where excellent food is served by people who care.
