great restaurants

There are some great restaurants on Grand Ave. Intertwined is one and I would highly recommend it for lunch or dinner. Great food, great wine list and great service with a smile.

Summer Friday nights on Grand Avenue are a car lover's paradise. You can see and touch memories from your past or teach the grandkids to identify the year/models of the 50's and 60's muscle cars. Great fun.

It took us a while to figure this street out - it is a blast from the past for sure! The storefronts and the shops themselves in many cases seem right out of the 1950's and they've managed to carry off that sense of another age very well. Sometimes these attempts can seem too false but the mix of old... More

This street, the heart of Escondido to my mind, contains a good balance/mix of eateries and shops and a relaxed ambience. Good farmers market.

You know how we girls like to stroll and shop? If you like to peek into stores, have lunch, park with ease and not go far afield, this is nice street to do it in. Not upscale...you can wear your jeans..but enough art and antiques to fill a fun afternoon.

My husband had the first night of his class reunion on Grand. We had so much fun. You should have seen the guys on the bikes with lights. They were so awesome.

The highlight of Grand Ave is the seasonal "Cruisin Grand". It makes for a great early evening out, as well as, trying the many restaurants offerings. They also offer a Farmers market once a week. It turns out that we have quite a few good growers in the area that offer some of the best of their crops,

I visit Grand Avenue at least once a month for lunch at the little French restaurant and a buying visit to the antique store across the street. I have never been disappointed in the brie sandwich and last but not least, the desserts! Ooh la la! So Paris with little bistro tables on the front patio. The antique store with... More
