Retaurants near La Costa - north County
We are 3 couples coming to San Diego for US Open and spending 5 nights at La Costa. We would like some recommendations for dinner primarily in the north San Diego area. We would like to have a couple of really nice dinners - someone recommended Valentines at Torrey Pines to me (we thought we might run into some of the golfers there as well) - does anyone know if La Costa has any decent restaurants.
Regardless we would like to try "California" restaurants - we would like a couple of nicer restaurants and a couple of more casual ones. For the cheaper restaurants we would like entrees to be under $25.00 if possible. We hope to eat at some with great views as well.
Lastly, one day the three women will spend the day in La Jolla and would like a great restaurant for lunch - outside would be ideal - fabulous salads as well.
