Men like to lunch at this elegant room in the luxurious Neiman Marcus department store as much as the ladies, who enjoy cool chardonnay and the restaurant's complimentary chicken consommé and hot popovers with strawberry butter. Healthy seafood-topped salads abound, but they get serious competition from the likes of a dressy lobster club sandwich, salmon with couscous, and filet mignon. The desserts are as self-indulgent as some of the well-heeled patrons. This is by
far the best place to dine in Fashion Valley, which is universally regarded as San Diego's leading shopping center.
