Since Realtors like nothing more than eating, especially if someone else is paying or it's a good deal, I thought I'd mention San Diego Restaurant Week is happening twice in 2008...that's great news. Now in its fourth year as San Diego County's largest and most successful dining event, San Diego Restaurant Week was launched with the intention of spotlighting the city as a premier dining destination.
Wouldn't it be nice if we could spotlight Carlsbad and Oceanside as having fine dining too? Encinitas is right next door and they are able to produce about 7 restaurants to participate, while Carlsbad and Oceanside could only muster 1 each: BlueFire Grill at the La Costa Resort in Carlsbad and Vigilucci's Osteria in downtown Oceanside. Both cities possess a population at least as big as Del Mar or Encinitas, but the presence of quality dining experiences seems somewhat unfulfilled.
Don't you think places like West or Tuscany or Tommy V's or any of the Four Seasons Aviara restaurants would want to expand their horizons? Would it hurt the Cuban Restaurant in Oceanside(Azafran) to try and get it's name out there?
If you think we could do better, I encourage you to help me launch a blog site aiming to put North San Diego County on the map for all that it has to offer. I want to know what you think is North County's Best...whether it's for food, shopping, hiking, beaches, services, schools, etc feel free to contribute at http://nsdbest.blogspot.com/
