    1. You could check out Roy's for asian fusion. Apparently they have a summer special with no corkage fee.

      1. Wine Vault fits your bill. I think the crowd's a little older, but does age group matter if the ambiance fits? Check Wine Vault's website for their menus, which change daily. Reservations are required.

          Yeah, Wine Vault would be an excellent choice.

            Second for Cavaillon.

            Cavaillon Restaurant
            14701 Via Bettona, Suite 200, San Diego, CA 92127

          2. I really like both Cavaillon and Wine Vault.

            Cavaillon would be perfect if it was located nearer downtown... but I'll definitely consider it.

            1. Amaya at The Grand Del Mar. I had the opportunity to eat there twice this week as friends from out of town were staying there and it was excellent. Billed as "mediterranean" but it's not really, just great solid food in a beautiful environment and parking is free if you eat there!

                Amaya is a great place, but I'm not sure it's in the budget. Obviously less money than Addison up the hill, and the food is excellent.

              2. Farmhouse. Strictly country French however, this is not a fusion house. The service and food are tops. The ambience is not heavy duty white table cloth fancy, but still slightly upscale.
