The Michelin Guide has finally come to the Southland. Its lone recipient finds a fitting host in this elegant, Del Mar situated Fairmont Hotel eatery, boasting fresh ingredients with Asian influenced dishes and service fit for royalty. The Wagyu upgrade may have been worth it. Prepare to spend the rent and form some of the greatest culinary memories San Diego can provide.

This is Bar only review.. First Impression Went there without reservation ,read the FAQ that said reservations are required for dining room but bar and terrace are open (this usually means food is served at bar too, not the case here only small plates are available at bar) Felt little bit of cold welcome (probably I was not dressed for location, I just wanted some good food and willing to pay for it) Recommendation : dress upscale if you want to blend in. (I wore a shirt full review

First question you get even at chain restaurants: “any allergies?” But not here. Here you get the chef’s “playful course” and if any of the dishes contain something you are allergic to, well, you are not having that replaced. Food is ok, a bit on the over creamy side. Wine pairing not worth it, you are better off getting a bottle of wine from the wine list.
