I've been blessed/cursed with finding a suitable restaurant for 10-15 people in the area around Sorrento Valley (La Jolla/UTC/Del Mar) that would be nice but not overly pricey with a decent wine list and vegetarian options. My wife and I go out to eat a decent amount, but it is rarely more than the 2 of us and I am not up on what a good group option would be.
The group is predominantly 30-ish, scientists, foreign (mostly European) and fairly adventurous with a few veggies in the mix. This is an annual supper and, traditionally, has ended up in the Gaslamp despite poor results with Gaslamp food/service in the past. Everyone is pretty fond of wines and the international element ends up demanding a fairly diverse winelist.
Thanks for any and all suggestions!
