On Friday, we dined out at Del Mar Rendezvous. It's a beautiful restaurant with modern dark wood tones, asian inspiration, and an extensive wine rack of which we partook later for dinner! Both the Manager Dan and Chef Tony have worked hard to continually make improvements in the experience as well as the food which has won them "best chinese" from San Diego Magazine for the past three years. One big selling point is that they have a separate vegetarian/vegan menu as well as a gluten-free menu, both with over 40 items to choose from, including gluten-free beer! It's fantastic that they are catering to more diners AND it is delicious!

We tried out some of the items that are going to be part of the San Diego Restaurant Week menu below:

On Thursday we drove out to Pacific Beach for a Tapena's meetup at Costa Brava, not knowing what to expect. What we found  was a bustling restaurant, their outdoor patio filled with chattering patrons. The wonderful Ruben and Ghali, part of the restaurant waitstaff, were pouring samples of Tapena wines for tasting.

Explore savory Spanish culture where the wine is flavorful and the art of conversation is alive and well.   Tapeña wines are from the Tierra de Castilla region of Spain and are extremely food- and budget-friendly.  Because of their easy drinking style, they are perfect for serving to a group of friends (or your peña, as they say in Spain)!

Tapeña will be serving up complimentary tapas and offering special prices on the Tapeña Wines that evening at Costa Brava in Pacific Beach.

Just picked up my free salad from Noodles  & Company today!

Today, June 7th 2012, Noodles & Company is running their second summer salad promotion where they offered the first 50 people in line one free salad plus three special garden stakes for free salad to share with friends! Their first promotion last year had a similar concept where a free salad was offered but instead of a garden stake, there were large green "I'm a Salad" tee shirts! The back of each shirt had 10 lines for up to 10 different people to try a salad for free!
