About Leroy’s Kitchen + Lounge:
An authentic neighborhood destination with a warm and welcoming appeal, Leroy’s Kitchen + Lounge raises the bar on Coronado’s chef-driven dining scene by delivering a truly locavore experience. Executive Chef Tim Kolanko’s wide breadth success is anchored in more than 20 years of culinary experience, working and training under several of the nation’s most respected industry innovators. At Leroy’s Chef Kolanko has crafted a passionately sustainable, ingredient-driven menu consisting of approachable, gastro-fare cuisine. His made-from-scratch culinary ethos presents diners with diverse flavors through a menu that changes to reflect the season’s freshest ingredients. The restaurant is named after Blue Bridge Hospitality’s well-traveled co-founder, Leroy Mossel, who alongside his Blue Bridge partner and cousin, David Spatafore—both long-time residents of Coronado— launched the restaurant group in 1998. Spatafore found his cousin’s eclectic background to be the perfect inspiration for this restaurant’s design and menu. Proudly partnering with neighboring farmers, brewers and producers, Leroy’s Kitchen + Bar also features an eclectic array of artwork from the surrounding artist’s community, presenting unique charm for locals and tourists alike. The beverage program showcases San Diego’s rich craft beer movement, highlighting the city’s best microbreweries with a diverse selection of on-tap options and craft beer flights. Leroy’s also offers a rotating menu of seasonal craft cocktails prepared with fresh herbs and spices. The restaurant boasts a private dining room that seats 10-12 and serves as the ideal space for small parties, business meetings or intimate dinners.
