Fire and water drama defines this signature restaurant that's part of La Costa resort complex. The centerpiece of the resort's entrance plaza, the grill holds an outdoor patio with fire pits, fountains, and a year-round floral display. Inside is a contemporary Mission-style room surrounding a green bottle glass fountain that extends the length of the main dining room. The menu features local seafood and vegetables combined in exciting ways. As a starter, try the heirloom
field green salad with handpicked La Costa Resort herbs, followed by a California lamb barbacoa slow baked in banana leaves. Tantalizing desserts include luscious Carlsbad strawberries marinated in balsamic and lemon herb crème brûlée.
