Standard Kitchenetta


Opening the doors in 2015 in the heart of the Gaslamp district in San Diego, Double Standard continues to showcase a menu influenced by regional traditions throughout Southern California and inspired by Italian flavors. The Kitchen lead by Executive Chef Christopher Gentile, creates new and exciting experience with high quality ingredients and some of the most show stopping presentations in San Diego. 

The menu changes weekly to showcase the season's freshest ingredients sourced from local farms and fishermen. Inspired by modern California flavors with an Italian twist, Double Standard is the perfect choice for a memorable evening. 


At Double Standard, we've made it our mission to only use the highest quality ingredients in our cuisine.

We source our produce, seafood, steaks, and poultry locally, and our menu changes weekly to incorporate the freshest seasonal ingredients available.

Chris Gentile, Executive Chef

Chris’ passion for cooking is deeply rooted in his creative fervor and appreciation of the beauty that lies in shared experiences. After staging with several culinary influencers including Thomas Keller, Sean Brock and Eric Ripert, he’s tapped into the importance of inspiring the next generation of cooks and wants to continue to push his boundaries as a chef and restaurateur.

The Southern California landscape continues to inspire Chris in many ways through the food and culture of surrounding cities including Los Angeles and Tijuana. Chris is constantly fueled by the way San Diego’s ocean, terrain, and vegetation lends itself to fresh seafood, herbs, and vegetables. While much of his day is spent inside the kitchen, Chris tries to get outside as often as possible and can be found foraging for wild herbs, fishing, barbecuing and trying his hand at disc golf.
