So many great places to eat brunch in San Diego! I had a chance to spend time with Chef Nick Green, who's creating exciting dishes at #Adelaide at L'Auberge Del Mar, and try Top Chef's Claudette Zepeda's toast at #VAGA in Alila Marea Resort in Encinitas.
So much fun to consume gelato and talk to the San Diegan owners, 4 friends who've known each other for a decade. https://www.sandiegomagazine.com/food-drink/an-s-gelato-is-serving-up-more-imaginative-flavors-at-their-new-del-mar-shop/article_1c4676f4-7a24-11ec-b63a-3bb3471dbe1f.html
Beach bonfires, Hotel Del Coronado and Fairmont Grand Del Mar are things I'm looking forward to.
I wrote about Asian alternatives to Christmas Eve and local afternoon teas.
