OVERVIEW of the Fairmont Grand Del Mar
The magnificent 249-room luxury San Diego resort, Fairmont Grand Del Mar, captures the elegance and comfort of an old-world Mediterranean estate with an enviable Southern California locale. Its design honors the indelible style of visionary architect Addison Mizner (1872-1933) who drew his inspiration from Spain’s palaces, France’s sun-washed coastal retreats and Florence’s decorative arts to define the revered communities of Palm Beach and Boca Raton. Mizner’s aesthetic is especially well suited, given San Diego’s warm climate and the community’s affinity for outdoor living.

Among the “best of the best” say fans of this “splurge”-y New French in Del Mar Mesa’s posh Grand Del Mar resort, where chef William Bradley puts out “inventive”, “elegantly presented” prix fixe meals and “great wines” in “beautiful” surroundings complemented by “exceptional service”; some find portions a bit “small” given the “sky-high” pricing, but the general consensus is “everyone should go at least once.” ZAGAT
