View lunch in La Jolla?
The pack patio of the Mediterranean Room at La Valencia is lovely, and quiet.
Depending when your mother will be visiting, Eddie V's will open early for the first time to serve brunch on Mother's Day. They plan to begin weekend lunch service on May 19th, but the date is not set in stone.
Agree with BC, silliest move by a restaurant ever to not serve lunch with the $$$ they put into that space (including terrific outdoor spaces). We were talking to the former owners of the former Trattoria Acqua who agrees, he thinks the view far surpasses George's.
