Del Mar is a beautiful beach town 15 miles north of San Diego. Sea & Smoke actually sits right off the highway in a strip mall but don’t let that fool you. First of all, it’s a pretty good strip mall with lots of good shopping and a Whole Foods. When you walk in, if you go down a half flight of stairs to the left, there is a very cool bar that opens up to a killer patio. And the food is no joke. Superb! Best Charred Octopus I have ever had. Very tender. Not chewy and the Fresh Pacific Halibut was excellent. Fun spot.
