Del Mar, CA is a quaint little town along the ocean just north of San Diego. If you are there, just off the main drag is L’Auberge Del Mar which is a cool little hotel and in it is Kitchen 1540. Great joint. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food is top notch and they have an excellent wine list. Also, their menu is also served out on the patio off the lobby which has ocean views. I went there for dinner and breakfast. The salmon on a bed of spinach was great and so was the vege and cheese omelet.
