Veladora


WOW! Let’s repeat that: Wow! Wow!

Veladora, the main restaurant at new-and-improved Rancho Valencia Resort is serving some of the best food in the region.

After an expenditure of $30 million to upgrade the resort and create a (relatively) casual, early-California dining room with soaring wood-beamed ceilings, wrought-iron chandeliers and a $1.8 million Damien Hirst artwork near the kitchen, the pièce de résistance comes with Executive Chef Eric Bauer. He is what makes Veladora ascend.

Bauer has created — and continues to fiddle with — a menu that takes fine ingredients and makes them finer. His food is silken, supple, flavorful, beautiful and almost overwhelmingly satisfying. His short-rib pappardelle features the most exquisitely lithe pasta to be found in San Diego. Sure the whole dish is superb, but the pasta is ethereal. A lobster risotto is rich, savory and gooey with lobster. It’s also covered with a dramatic puddle of black foam. Polenta with ratatouille ragout and asparagus is opulent and piquant. There’s also duck breast with huckleberries, filet with shallot marmalade and swordfish with an egg yolk and bacon jus.

The bottom line for dining at Veladora is straightforward and simple: Go and be wowed.

A stranger walks into your house. OK, let’s take the creep factor out of the equation and make that an invited stranger — for whatever reason you might invite a stranger past the front door, which could range from an actuary who can advise you on life insurance and who may never cross your threshold again to your son’s new girlfriend who may one day become a family member with an open invitation to “bring the grandkids by anytime.
