Baleen - San Diego
Has anyone been here? I've searched the archives but they only mention the one in Miami. It sounds really interesting.
Went there for Father's Day brunch ($27). The place is pleasant, with a nice outdoor deck overlooking a marina and boat channel. Rather than a traditional buffet, the items are served separately in small portions. You can order as much and often as you like. The food seemed fine. A small filet was excellent and an omelet had a nice spicy bite. French toast with bananas was interesting, as was a lamb dish. There's a shrimp station and sushi (all California Roll). Desserts were as you'd find in most upscale buffets. Overall, an enjoyable experience, but nothing astonishing in the cuisine realm.
