There are several BYC locations. The one in the Gaslamp is right around the corner from the Marriott, so it was a quick walk. SP ordered a cup of hot green tea and I had to laugh a bit when a huge honey bear showed up with his tea!

They also do take out, so for the remainder of vacation, SP went over every morning and brought back fruit, muffin, biscuit, and bacon for us to have in the hotel room while we got ready in the mornings.
After breakfast, we headed north to Carlsbad, to The Flower Fields.
Mission San Luis Rey.
Chart House. It's in Cardiff. We were early for our reservation, so we sat in the lounge and ordered cocktails:
|Beer for dad and SP, cosmopolitan for mom, mango mojito for me|
Along with a bottle of cabernet sauvignon, here's what we enjoyed:
|Appetizer: Crab, Avocado, & Mango Stack|
|Best of Soup: Clam Chowder, Lobster Bisque, Gazpacho|
|Crab Stuffed Mushrooms in a white wine sauce|
|For SP & mom: Seared Mahi topped with lobster & crab, served with a tomato-artichoke orzo|
|For me, Baked Stuffed Shrimp stuffed with crab, served with asparagus and tomato-artichoke orzo|
|View part way through dinner, as the sun starts to set|
|Dessert. Shared by everyone, the dessert special, a trio of berry cobblers. Peach, strawberry, and blueberry.|
|The sun sets even more|
Service was excellent. The view was amazing. Mom and dad treated us to dinner for our anniversary and also for a belated birthday meal for SP. That was very nice & generous of them, especially since this was a pretty pricey meal. Given how much I enjoyed the cocktails and appetizers and how awesome the view was, I would go back. I might make a meal of appetizers next time. But the view... it doesn't get any better.
