My parents' 50th anniversary is coming up next month, and my dad has expressed an interest in splurging on a small celebratory dinner for family (a small group of no more than 8), and wants it to be very special for the occasion. He's not usually the type to spend a lot on going out, but wants to go "all out" this time, and he prefers spicy, meaty foods. My mom for health reasons restricts herself to seafood and vegetarian foods -- no butter. I'd like to recommend somewhere that will have exceptional food, something for everyone's diet, and an appropriately special, celebratory atmosphere. They live in San Marcos, so the best recommendations would be in La Jolla and north. Thanks for any ideas!
