Back at the resort, we learned my husband won his tennis matches and wanted to celebrate. We walked over to The Marine Room for a early sunset dinner before driving home. The on-the-surf dining room offers an award winning menu by Executive Chef Bernard Guilles and Chef de Cuisine Ron Oliver. Since it was Saturday night, we couldn’t participate in the restaurant’s Happy Hour specials. Every Sunday through Friday starting at 4 to 6 p.m. in the lounge area offers specially priced gourmet small plates and cocktail specials.
We enjoyed Pacific Blue crab cake with buckwheat yam noodles, nashi pear, burnet sprouts, and a yuzu emulsion. The signature lobster bisque was served with a delicious pistachio cornbread. For an entree we split the line caught swordfish and each had a glass of wine. Our daughter enjoyed the Herb de Provence Mary’s Farm Chicken with fingerlings potatoes.
Driving home, I noticed we all had a little pink tinge on our cheeks and relaxed look on our faces. La Jolla is a destination that entices visitors to come back on an annual visit for surf, fun, seals and sun.
