Savor San Diego Restaurant Week at Flavor Del Mar

San Diego Restaurant Week officially kicks off Sunday, September 16th and runs through the 21st and this year is better than ever with over 180 restaurants participating. With so many to choose from, it’s hard to pick just one, so I’ve decided to try several! One I’m most excited to try has it all: great food, great service and a great view – Flavor Del Mar.

Nestled atop Del Mar Plaza with a pitch perfect ocean view, dining at Flavor Del Mar is a full sensory experience. Executive Chef Brian Redzikowski offers a youthful and inspired approach to California Cuisine, creating simple, yet unique blend of flavors and fragrances that are as fresh as the Pacific breeze.

At my most recent trip to the restaurant we were started off with warm bread and spiced salts. I made sure I tried them all and absolutely loved the house sea salt with fresh rosemary. Next we ordered the tuna tacos to share. These tacos alone were worth the trip, my mouth waters just thinking about those tacos. For the entrée, I had the seared scallops. I love a good scallop and these lived up to the restaurant’s name, Flavor. They melted in my mouth as if they were butter. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for Restaurant Week!

San Diego Restaurant Week runs from Sunday, September 16 through Friday, September 21st. Over 180 restaurants are participating and are offering three-course prix-fixe dinner menus for just $20, $30 or $40 per person and/or two-course prix-fixe lunch menus for only $10, $15 or $20 per person. Tickets and passes aren’t necessary for this week of discounted dining; show up at any participating location or call ahead to make a reservation and eat to your heart’s desire!

About Suzzanne

I love to buy books, but seldom actually finish one. I like african violets, my iPhone, and everything that smells like lavender.  I am seriously adverse to the cold and am known to bring a sweatshirt to the beach in the summer.  I have two kids – a boy whose 10 and a girl 12.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

It would start by having breakfast somewhere near the ocean – either Pannikin in Encinitas or Beach Grass Café in Solana Beach.  Then we would head to the beach hang out for a few hours, head home and then catch a concert in the park in Balboa Park.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

We love riding our bikes around town.  There are great places to ride in San Diego that kids can handle – Coronado Island, Point Loma or the boardwalk in Pacific Beach are just a few.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Depends on the day, a good burger and craft brew can really hit the spot, but I would probably end up ordering linguine and white wine.
