The Unknown Eater visits Sbicca in Del Mar. On the east side of 15th Street, between CDM and Stratford Court, this is not a new find but an existing dining spot that remains successful. The patio tables, with ocean views, begin to disappear after 5 pm in the spring and summer; yet there are view seats upstairs as well. Many unique seating zones exist, including the wine room, reservations required, on the 2nd floor. Outdoor heaters keep most patrons comfortable. Friends and I started with wine on a late afternoon accompanied with several starters including coconut calamari and P.E.I. mussels; all were delivered within a reasonable time. It was half price wine night (each Tuesday and Thursday) which adds to the enjoyment. We then ordered dinners that consisted of roasted pork prime rib, Scottish salmon and roasted rainbow trout; we shared a citrus salad as well. The staff was friendly as usual. The food was appealing. Did I mention it was half price wine night? It can be loud in the bar, yet typically OK; in other areas the voices sink into the evening. Sbicca has a good full service bar that includes an excellent selection of wine; beer by the bottle is available. Prices were in the middle to upper range. Sbicca is a gem that is an easy walk any time of the year! Happy hour from 4pm to 6pm. Reservations at 858.481.1001
