I'd like recommendations for Carlsbad restaurants, especially downtown. Has anyone tried any of the following?:
Armenian Cafe, Fresco Trattoria, Le Passage, Vigilucci's, Caldo Pomodoro, Gregorio's, Jay's Gourmet Seafood & Pizza, Tom Giblin's.
For my part, I've been to several and will give my 'grades' and short notes instead of writing too long a post:
Lotus Thai: (B) excellent fresh rolls and fabulous satay; all else is kind of hit or miss.
Mikko: (C+) decent plate lunches (dinners), CA rolls and sushi seem OK.
Knockout Pizza (B) good NY-style thin, thin crust
Pizza Port (A+) for beer, (D) for pizza
Japanese Deli on State Street (C+) simple and good.
Coyote Bar & Grill (C+) haven't really eat here more than a couple of times.
Harbor Fish (F) runny clam (were there any) chowder, if you like fried fish maybe bump it up a grade.
Fish House Vera Cruz (B+) excellent fresh fish served with airplane food vegetables.
