Casual Date Night in North County SD
You guys have always given me kick ass recommendations for places to try and once again I'm going to need your help. I just need a place thats mid-range, good ambience, has a commendable wine/mixology program, not sushi (my date hates fish…red flag?), and around Encinitas/Carlsbad. Being from Del Mar I should know these things, but I live up in LA and am a tad bit out of touch. Also, preferably no chain restaurants!
So far I have:
Blue Ribbon Pizza
Any thoughts and feedback would be awesome! Thank you!
Blue ribbon is great, really do love it. How about Q'uero? or Solterra. Never been to Soterra, but it is always packed when I drive by on my way to Gardens by the Sea for my succulent fix. I really don't know why I mentioned these places at all because I am a huge fan of the 3rd Corner. They have such a huge wine selection, not even sure if they serve hard liquor. Sorry I am not into that craft cocktail thing. Just give me my Makers straight up. Anyway the wine is top notch and I have had most of the things on the menu and I really have not been disappointed. Don't forget about their brunch. It is a prix fixe with sparkling wine, and the stuff they use is a heck of a lot better than the usual stuff you will find at most unlimited buffets. Go Bruins!
I have yet to go to Q'uero but have heard great things and same with Solterra! Great recommendations! I'm a big wino, so the more wine the better...and though I do appreciate a well made cocktail, I'm right there with you on simplicity. Thank you for the input, us Bruins got to stick together :)
