Superb Meal at Carl Schroeder's Black Horse Grille-San Diego

We have been big fans of Arterra ever since it opened. We found that the food from Executive Chef Carl Schroeder (within the framework of Brad Ogden) was wonderful. As noted earlier he has now gone off and opened his own place. It's the Black Horse Grille located at 3702 Via de la Valle in Del Mar (just east of I-5, at the intersection of Via de la Valle and El Camino Real.) 858 523-0007. We had a superb meal there last week. I started with a crab cake of crispy Dungeness Crab on a marinated tomato with basil mayonaise and a sweet corn emulsion. One of our group had a soup of heirloom tomatoes and Huitlacoche (it 's a special fungus that grows on corn) that was wonderful. I had the shortribs (a dish of Shroeder's I loved at Arterra.) These were even better! (and cost less at $26 than Arterra) My wife opted for the buttermilk fried chicken with Chino's corn lightly creamed. She gave it an A (she's a teacher.) They eventually plan to change the name and remodel. But go now (reservations a must in racing season) I have no $$$ interest at all. (I wish I did) I'm just a fan.
