La Jolla restaurants with scene / atmosphere

coookie | Apr 2, 2008 10:55 AM

Hi all,

Boston 'hound here, in La Jolla for work. I'm looking for a mid-to-upscale restaurant (~$30-40 entrees) in the La Jolla area for a business dinner tonight. I'm not looking for the traditional stuffy business dinner steakhouse setting, but rather somewhere with modern food and a good scene or atmosphere. And it hurts me to say this, but cuisine quality can take a little bit of a hit if it's made up for by the right vibe.

Right now, I've got reservations at Nine-Ten and Roppongi as both seem to fit the atmosphere bill. Is my sense of those places accurate? How's the food? Any other places you'd recommend?
