It was a tall order, driving from Orange County to Carlsbad just to go to a restaurant for lunch. But how we were so rewarded for the effort. Hands down - the best duck confit cassoulet I have ever had. My wife is still raving about her angus burger...yes raving about a hamburger no less. I will tell you how hooked we were.....we came home and tried to see if there was an Amtrak stop nearby because the next time we visit, this superb food deserves a superb wine with no thought of driving 60 miles home. This restaurant deserves every accolade that you see written here.
