OK, I am in a bind here - I have a couple of ideas but could use some advice.
So my dad is finally coming down for a day this weekend, first time in a year and a half I have been able to get him to leave santa barbara and make the long drive to san diego. He is the kind of guy you have to make an appointment with to see, even if it's for breakfast, so this is a pretty rare occasion.
I managed to get him coming saturday mid-morning and leaving sunday afternoon, so that gives me about 24 hours to impress the heck out of him and really sell him on the north county san diego area--and convince him to pay for at least part of my wedding!
He is a foodie so I figure I'm going to take him to the Del Mar races on saturday and get a great dinner down there. I need somewhere really good, fun and not prohibitively expensive. I have a tentative reservation at Market, is there anywhere else I should look? The menu looks great and reviews are good, although I've never been.
Also, he is a total breakfast guy so a recc for a great brunch on sunday would be awesome. Anywhere good over in the Escondido area?
Thanks in advance!
