Epazote, Del Mar
Epazotes has out door patio seating with an amazing view of the ocean. There is a bar that hosts great happy hour drink specials. I especially enjoyed the margaritas on the rocks that come in the shaker so you can pour them yourself. The bar is open all night and is packed after dinner hours. This is a hot spot for dinner or just drinks. Weekends and Wednesdays are very busy here because they have live jazz concerts so be prepared to be patient.
Favorite Dish: The menu consists of spicy Southwestern cuisine. Other than the coconut curry shrimp appetizers, my favorite dinner item is the pumpkin seed Salmon dish served in a corn husk. The fish is so fresh and delicious.
Across from Epazote is the Pacifica Del Mar
Pacifica Del Mar also has patio seating and a bar that has great martinis.
Favorite Dish: They have great appetizers..my favorites are the potstickers or potato wedges. Otherwise for dinner they have a wonderful bbq sugar spiced salmon or the sauteed seabass with potato gnocchi.
