Escondido recs

Any recommendations for dinner in Escondido? Looking mainly for places on Grand Ave. 150 Grand is my favorite but I haven't been there in over a year and heard on this site that they have a new owner. Is it still any good? Please no Mexican -- we'll be coming back to SD after a day in Temecula and I don't think I could handle Mexican after hours of wine tasting. Thanks everyone.

  1. I heard that R. O'Sullivans is a fun place, just down the street from 150 Grand (towards the hospital). I cannot vouch for the food, but I have heard from friends that it is good. Same owners as Tom Giblins in Carlsbad and they have excellent food if you like Irish, that I can vouch for.

    1. Asia Vous, just down the street from 150 Grand. Delicious and elegant.

      1. I haven't tried it yet but I heard Vincent's is very good:

        1. Thanks everyone. I've heard good things about all three of your recs. The only hard part will be coming to a consensus with DH, but after 23 years he's just about ready to admit that my chowhound instincts are superior to his. Ten more years oughta do it :-).

          1. We met friends at Vincents and we were really pleased with the food and service. It was a nice touch that Chef stops by to check on your meal.
