Help, dear Chowhounders!
will be in San Diego for Thanksgiving....where to eat?? home cooked meal not an option!
If it's open, the new Valentin's restaurant at the Torrey Pines Country Club in La Jolla is wonderful. The setting is beautiful, right by the ocean on the edge of a golf course in a tastefully done re-creation of a 1920's style arts and crafts mansion a la the Gamble House in Pasadena. The room is decorated with original artwork by a turn of the century painter working in the arts and crafts tradition, by the name of Valentin. The food was fine, traditional fare with just enough flare to make it interesting as well as delicious.
