Mexican wine in San Diego
Have you tried Romesco yet? If you’re a foodie, you owe it to yourself to experience its inventive food, which combines California ingredients with Mediterranean flavors and Baja-style cuisine. A recent special dinner featured a sea-urchin-foam-topped seafood bouillabaisse with a sea-bean and sea-salt biscotti and seared scallops on a fava-bean epazote tamal.
The restaurant is also one of the only places in San Diego to try wines from Mexico’s Guadalupe Valley, the best local wine area that you’re not visiting. 4346 Bonita Road, 619-475-8627. www.romescobajamed.com.
