Hello Chowhounds!

I'm looking for a great place for LUNCH place after defending my dissertation. I'm not necessarily looking for "fancy" just really good food and definitely a place with beer/wine service.

Some ideas so far are:
Prep Kitchen
Nine Ten
Whisk n Ladle
George's Ocean Terrace
(does anyone know if George's Modern is open for lunch)?

Do you have any ideas and/or think that one of these has exceptionally good (or bad) food?

Thanks for your suggestions.

    Public House on Kline near Fay may work, good lunch fare and great beer selections.

      Just had lunch with a client yesterday at Whisknladle -- the food very good. Consider the Ocean View Terrace at La Valencia too. Prices aren't bad and the views are GREAT. Less of a mob scene than George's Ocean Terrace too.

          George's Modern is not open for lunch. You might also consider LJ Shores: Barbarella, Piatti, the ocean view bar or pool patio at La Jolla Shores Hotel right on the boardwalk.

            Prep Kitchen in Del Mar is terrific. Haven't been to the LJ location, but the food was quite good. More relaxed setting than Nine-Ten.
