San Diego Fine Dining Restaurant Jan 28, 2012
El Bizcocho is the signature restaurant at Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego. This is not the kind of restaurant I would normally dine at unless for a special occasion or celebration, as it is a bit on the expensive side. I was staying at the Rancho Bernardo Inn for a congress and one of the meetings of the OSA congress (FILAS - Fiber lasers) sponsored a dinner at this restaurant. We were treated to a five course meal that was absolutely splendid. The meal consisted of the following:

1.) Ahi Tuna Tartar (w/ Sesame Strudel, Curry Oil, Wasabi Crema) served with NV Roederer Estate Champagne.

2.) Heirloom Beet Salad (w/ Avocado Pudding, California Chevre) served with 2010 CA' Montini Pinot Grigio.

3.) Puree of Butternut Squash (w/ Glazed Tamworth Bacon, White Truffle Cream) served with 2006 Shea Winery Chardonnay.

4.) Grilled Prime Beef Filet (w/ Creamed Spinach, Potato Mousseline) served with 2007 White Hall Lane Cabernet Savignon.

5.) Chocolate Fondant (w/ Vanilla Bean Ice Cream) served with Fonseca 20 yr old Tawny Port.

Such a meal is likely over $100 per person with the wines. For such a fine dining experience El Bizcocho definitely delivered here. The meal was quite excellent and the choice of wines went well with each dish. If this was any indication of the kind of meal this restaurant can produce then you would not be disappointed. A good fine dining experience that I can highly recommend!

Congrats on the award Brian. That menu sounds awesome (and kudos on the Sierra Nevada pic and the Whitehall Lane Cab - one of my favorites), We might have to motivate and drive down to Rancho Bernardo to check this place out!
