Due to a business trip where I attended a conference, I got to bring my husband along with me for the cost of a plan ticket to San Diego. The locals are unhappy with the chilly 62 degree weather, while we are happy it is above 40F!
Our first day marked a stroll around where we found a lovely restaurant called Edgewater Grill in Seaport Village. I only had a Caesar salad (lovely croutons and dressing) but I was quite happy when I ordered a drink. Being that it is vacation, I decided to live a little wild and I ordered a special drink. I had been fiddling with this at home and asked that the bartender have a little fun: I asked for :
Dash of peach schnapps
Wonderful service, good food, and a great drink!
We took the trolley and then the bus to Coronado. Spent over an hour walking on the beach with the surf teasing toes as we watched the waves. Dinner was a little heavier as my husband dearly wanted to try some seafood.
He had a blackened whitefish with seasonal veggies and a wonderful homemade tartar sauce. I don’t like fish- but this was wonderful! The tartar sauce was chunky and had adult amounts of garlic in it, making it the perfect companion to the fish for a amateur like me! (I tend to steal tastes of most of my husbands dishes).
I had a medium-well New York Strip Steak with veggies and truffle oil french fries. The steak was nice and tender and cooked perfectly, with a dollop of house butter on top. However, it had little flavor. I don’t know if it was trimmed too much or if my husband has spoiled me with marinades, but I found that it had less flavor then I am used to with a properly cooked Strip steak. The real fun was the truffle oil fries!
I had read a blog in which someone had tried these in Las Vegas and adored them, and I must say that I was not disappointed.
Desert was a standard raspberry sorbet, with a biscuit straw as a nice addition.
3 stars- good service and well prepared food.
