Have you made your reservations for San Diego Restaurant Week yet? If not, get thee to the internets and make that reservation! The restaurants fill up quickly, and the special menus (at embarrassingly low prices) make the event something not to be missed. If you need some help in choosing, might I suggest Brockton Villa right on La Jolla Cove? The view alone is worth the price of admission (hello sunsets over the cliffs!), but the food stands up to the expectations and exceeds them every time.
The Restaurant Week menu typically features an appetizer, entree, and dessert for a fixed price. Different restaurants have different price tiers, but Brockton Villa is sharing theirs for the meager price of $30 per person, plus tax and tip. Our very nice server recommended the Epic Chowder, featuring clams, blue crab, potatoes, and bacon in a creamy bisque. Bursting with salty sea flavor, this soup was the perfect start to a dinner with a view of the ocean.
We wound things up with the famous Coast Toast dessert! The toothsome slice of French toast from breakfast is re-envisioned as a dessert at suppertime by adding a nice scoop of vanilla gelato. It's sweet, and the perfect unification of cold and hot and sweet and just perfect.
There are loads of great restaurants having specials next week, and I intend to try out a couple of new places, but I really feel lucky to have had the chance to check out Brockton Villa! For reservations, click here.
