We live near the corner of Via De La Valle and El Cmaino real- by the Market restaurant and the Del Mar Polo club. We have for the most part stoped going out becasue we are invariably dissapointed with the food. Can you make suggestions for fabulous places to eat that are not far away? Solana Beach, Del Mar, Encintas, Cardiff- those areas are all accesible to us. I'm intrested in places for date nights that will cost about $100-130 for two adults (having a glass of wine each) or places to go any given night that are $30-$50 for the two of us.
I tried doing a search and sifted thru several posts but they don't seem to be organized to North County and it was difficult to look up every spot in hopes that it would be nearby. Looks like I ought to try Market so we'll give that a try soon.
So many places seem to be serving sub par produce in uninsipired dishes- we usually spend upwards of $100 and in the end wish we had just grabbed some organic steaks and made them ourselves. Lately I have been craving some biscuits and gravy- I tried a place that was raved about on Yelp and coudln't belive how bad it was- all clearly frozen food- even the hashbrowns and fruit, I couldn't beleive it was touted as the best breakfast i Solana Beach. Whenever we decide to go out we can't come up with a place to go unless we shell out the cash for Via Italia Trattoria in Encinitas or Samurai in Solana Beach. I grew up in Orange county and I actually think I had more favorite spots there. Thank you for your help.
