Top of the Market
If you are in search of a quiet, romantic place to enjoy the gorgeous views of the San Diego bay, look no further than the award winning delight known as Top of the Market. Enjoy expansive views from Point Loma to the Coronado Bridge from your table in the pleasingly lit dining room, or within the enclosed heated waterfront patio. Open for both lunch and dinner daily, you can enjoy the freshest seafood at your own leisure.
Lunch seems to be a more casual affair, in which the offerings include the Grilled Prawn Cobb Salad, Main Lobster Salad Sliders with Sweet Potato Fries, and an Asian inspired Seared Fijian Yellowfin Tuna.
At night, the restaurant is transformed into a serious culinary wonderland. Recommendations include the Seared New Bedford Sea Scallops and the Roasted Rack of Lamb with Garlic Basil Persillade, Baby Artichoke, and Fingerling Potato Ragout- All paired beautifully with drinks off of the all-embracing wine list.
The desserts here are well worth the splurge and are lovely when accompanied by a steaming cappuccino. Personal favorites would have to include the Belgian Chocolate Apple Strudel Crumb or the Laura Chenel “Goat Cheese” Cheesecake.
If you have not had a chance to dine at the Top of the Market, it is a San Diego culinary tradition that is not to be missed.
