I need some strong recs for the Encinitas area in mid-June. 3 of the guys are heading to the US Open at Torrey Pines and we need dinner plans. We are staying in Encinitas but will consider anything from Carlsbad to La Jolla. We will be heading up on Friday morning, golfing then dinner, same on Saturday, and then at the tournament all day Sunday with dinner afterwards.
We are into New American, Seafood, and Italian ( maybe a steakhouse but it would have to be a "can't miss" type of place ). Tasting menus would be fantastic but we don't want to have to get super dressed up. We will want to wear jeans and/or slacks with no jacket or tie. Prices aren't an issue. We are all in the restaurant industry, extremely critical, and want to have some great food.
So there it is. Lay 'em on me!
