Who: 5 "kids" ranging from 21-27 and 4 "adults" in the 50+ catagory.
The Area: San Diego, Del Mar, Carlsbad or ??? We are staying at the La Costa resort in Carlsbad
What: We wanted a reservation for Friday night at Parallel 33, but they won't take reservations for a party our size. We can split up the tables, but would rather not, SO I was wondering if there is something else that is not to be missed in the general area.
Food tastes: 4-5 serious chowhounds who are happy anywhere good food is found, 3 or so others who are serious carnivore types (but like GOOD meat, not just any meat.) We like food ranging from cheap Asian food in San Francisco to haute cuisine as well. The bottom line iswe like good food prepared well and in an exciting way.
Also: We need good wine and booze, branch whiskey a plus. We are coming from SF Bay Area.
Therefore: Any thoughts on somewhere where 11 of us could get a reservation for Friday night (probably later in the evening) that would satisfy some of those requirements?
Thanks so much 'hounds! Can't wait to come to the SD area! Oh, also, we promise to report back!
