The Chef from the Four Seasons opened a new restaurant on El Camino Real in Encinitas. Wonderful Duck Confit and creative appetizers. Very nice, inexpensive wine list with an $8 corkage fee. Entrees around $15. The sophistication of the food far exceeds price point.
Nice ambiance (although it is in a strip mall) with attentive service.
A real find for the North County!
