Market is a good choice.
Pamplemousse is another
Vigilucci's has 5 locations. I've eaten in Carlsbad and Encinitas often, sometimes it hit or miss
Then there's Red Tracton's across from the Del Mar Racetrack.
One place I'd avoid is Wolfgang Puck's Jai in La Jolla, at the La Jolla Playhouse, only two dinners there, but both were undistinguished. i think the restaurant's there only to serve the pre-theater crowd, certainly was empty when I once went at 8pm.
