Having a simple, logical name is often beneficial, like The Band's moniker advertising their straightforward tonal style, or TV execs believing Dick Wolf was such a predatorial sleuth that they gave him like nine Law & Orders. For a restaurant named for what it's bringing, check out Flavor Del Mar.
Sprouting up in the completely remodeled former Epazote's Del Mar Plaza spot, Flave's a just-opened resto/bar with a glass-enclosed patio, killer views of the Pacific from nearly every seat, and a marble-topped bar backed by an illuminated, sea-colored, glass wall installation which "provide(s) a direct connection between the water and the restaurant", though hopefully not too direct, or they're totally Phuket. "Sophisticated Modern California Cuisine" includes starters like Prime Beef Tenderloin Carpaccio and Day Boat Scallop Ceviche, and mains ranging from truffled Crispy Pork Belly (w/ oxtail tortellini, oyster 'shrooms, & oxtail consume) to Cast-Iron-Seared Wild Sockeye salmon w/ a jalapeno-maple glaze -- all part of a menu they describe as "truly ingredient driven", so you better hope it doesn't have too many vegetables. To wash it down, the bar's stocked with eight taps, seven Champagnes/sparklings, over 120 bottles of vino, and a hefty specialty 'tail list including the tequila/creme de cassis/ruby red/agave "Bamboozle", and the bourbon/maraschino liqueur/sour "Bluegrass Cobbler", also a dude who fiddles with some serious in-soul.
They've also got bites like oysters on the half w/ wasabi cocktail sauce & yuzu mignonette on a bar menu that runs 10:30am-11pm -- though stay at the bar that long, and the special victim will be your unit.
