All About Sublime Tavern in Del Mar

As a frequent visitor to Sublime Alehouse in San Marcos, I was thrilled for the arrival of their sister restaurant, Sublime Tavern, in Del Mar.  Now, even more San Diegans will be able to try their signature Mac ‘N Cheese that won me over from the very first bite of Gruyere goodness.

I was invited to check out the new spot where Tommy V’s and Market used to be.  It’s definitely a destination location, being right across from the polo fields, but parking is reasonable, the wine-list is extensive, the atmosphere is light and casual, and the menu is full of comfort foods that will leave your stomach full and happy.

As I mentioned before, I am a huge fan of the Mac N’ Cheese and think every single one of you would appreciate the pulled pork and caramelized onions in the Rapture.  Be sure to ask for a side of barbeque sauce.  It’s a perfect addition.  That being said, I have to admit that that is the only dish on the menu that I would ever order.  It’s why I came.  It’s what I crave.

This time I got a much more thorough experience.  It started off with a huge basket of Truffle Fries with four different aioli’s.   The fries are tossed in truffle oil, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. They were scrumptious alone, but I had fun trying to figure out which aioli was my favorite.  I think I ended up picking the garlic aioli….no, no, the sun-dried tomato aoili.  I don’t know.  I loved them all.

Next to the table was the Watermelon & Wild Arugula Salad, which scared me initially.  I’m not a fan of arugula or watermelon, but the combination was quite surprising and it actually worked.  The sweetness of the watermelon cut down the bitterness of the arugula, and the combination of  feta, tomato, cucumber, and a sweet basil vinaigrette made for a perfectly refreshing salad on a hot summer afternoon.

Hold on to your seats, there are two more dishes!

Jalapeno Grill and Cantina in Escondido

by Audra Leigh of SD Cheers

Jalapeno Grill and Cantina is a must try for anyone in the North County area!

The parking was a little difficult. They’ve got a parking lot in the back and there is parking on the side street, but all of those spots were filled at happy hour time and a few of us had to park in a dark alley. Not fun when we left after it got dark.

I was greeted right away by our waiter, Jorge. He was a delight to have; friendly, prompt, knowledgeable, and accommodating.

BEWARE: The chips are addicting. Better than any Mexican restaurant in Northern San Diego.

Our table dined on Coconut Shrimp and Jalapeno Cheese Sticks to start. The shrimp was perfectly cooked. There were two sauces: a spicy cream sauce that also came with the cheese sticks and the other was the SAME sauce served with calamari at 3 other restaurants I’ve reviewed……

I love cheese sticks. I love cheese sticks more than the normal gal. I love them so much I know that Denny’s and Jack in the box happen to be the best place to satisfy my craving. My hope is to find a restaurant that can make them that good consistently: Hot, melted, crispy on the outside, great sauce to accompany it. Not the case here and I was SOOOOO disappointed. The breading looked amazing with the chunks of jalapeno floating around, but biting into the cheese was like biting into my child’s string cheese stick. Can someone please tell me why a restaurant can not master the art of melting cheese and a fast food chain can???

Being at a Steakhouse I had to order some sort of meat dish. I ordered the Prime Rib Chico Cut. Chico was the smallest and most reasonable cut at $15.95 and served with 2 sides of my choice. I ordered the Jalapeno Cheddar Mashed Potatoes and the black beans. My plate came out filled to the max and my Prime Rib was no chico!!!

The Prime Rib was aged and cooked to perfection. The best Prime Rib that I can remember, to be honest. It was tender and melted in my mouth with so much flavor that I savored every last bite. (With the appetizers already taken in, I couldn’t finish my plate, but were great leftovers the next day)

The mashed potatoes were a delicious side and went well with the meat. I never even tried the black beans.

I loved every minute here and recommend you ALL try it!!! I can’t wait to go back and try out one of their amazing specials.
