Addison is a very high-end tasting menu spot at a fancy resort in Del Mar, just north of San Diego. It costs $300 per person and there’s a good chance you will eat a part of your several-hour-long meal gazing out over a golf course fairway. These qualities might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if there is the best version of dining inside what feels like the private mansion of a Spanish land baron, Addison pulls it off. Dishes like king crab with passion fruit foam and wagyu with braised maitake mushrooms—the kind of hoity-toity food they poke fun at in movies—look gorgeous and taste luxurious. If you’re open to shelling out for a spa day and round of golf in Torrey Pines, splurging at Addison is an equally worthwhile expense.
