OK- I'm from San Diego (grew up near Del Mar and lived there till 99) and know my way around. I'll be staying with my girlfriend in Del Mar for these 4 days at the beginning of April, so now I'm pondering where we are going to eat. OK, I'm a planner, I admit it.
Dinner requirements: No Mexican, price isn't an issue, dress isn't an issue, must have full bar (sorry WineSellar, you're out of luck this time)
My guess is that one night we will go to Nine-Ten. Jack's is on my never go back to again list because of three times there with terrible service. I'm also terribly bored of Piati. I'll probably also skip sushi because mom won't do sushi. The last one on the never again list is Donovan's. Their food, and I'll never understand the praise, is terrible as is their service.
Breakfast: I know one day we will go to Mission Coffee Cup on Wall St. No real constraints on breakfast, though if you've got a breakfast with a mean bloody mary I'm always game.
Lunch: Besides Tyme in the Ranch I'm not sure about where to head.
Hit me up with some help!
Very few food restrictions.
