San Diego's only Forbes five-star and AAA five-diamond rated restaurant, the Addison, is a true local institution, a favorite destination for special occasioners and foodies willing to dig deep for a consummate dining experience. Esconced on the luxurious grounds of The Grand Del Mar Resort, the dining room projects an Old World elegance with marble floors, ornately carved dark woods, and large limestone fireplaces. The celebrated Chef William Bradley, San Diego-born and classically trained abroad, showcases modern French cuisine with seasonally-inspired, four to 10-course prix-fixe menus, which may include sake-cured hamachi or Prince Edward Island mussels with chickpeas, garlic confit, and saffron. The vast wine list—a perennial award-winner—includes top-tier California selections, classic European offerings, and new finds from South America and South Africa. Just listen to your sommelier—you'll be in excellent hands.
