Kid-friendly spots with good food in Del Mar

kewlly May 21, 2013 11:52 AM

We'll be heading out to SD from NYC for a few days in June with our 2 year old daughter. We're staying at the Grand Del Mar, and would love to get recommendations of good food spots around the area, or must-tries that are within a 30-minute drive. Definitely looking for casual and mid-range options, rather than anything fancy.

Ideally we'd be able to hit a good fish taco spot, a good mexican spot, a good seafood/oyster spot and anything else that SD is known for. I've read some reviews on good Pho, so would be interested in checking that out as well. Let me know if you have any ideas.

    Tony's Jacal -- Mexican -- Solana Beach
    The Brigantine bar/lounge -- fish tacos -- Del Mar
    Blue Ribbon Pizza -- artisan pizza -- Encinitas
    Grill at the Lodge -- burgers & view -- Torrey Pines
    Mille Fleurs patio/Casual Menu -- french -- Rancho Santa Fe
    The Fish Market - Oyster Bar -- Solana Beach
    Red Tracton's -- old school steakhouse -- Solana Beach
    Market Restaurant -- California cuisine -- Del Mar
    Davanti Enoteca -- Italian food sans pasta -- Carmel Valley
    Le Bambou -- Frenh influenced Vietnamese -- Del Mar

    All should happily accomodate a two-year old. As for good Pho, you'll have to travel to the Mira Mesa/Claremont area.

      Fantastic. Thanks for the suggestions. Are there any notable sushi spots in the general area?

        Urban Plates is a good, kid-friendly, casual spot not far from your hotel:
