We were looking for a place close to (but not on) the pier, being on bikes, and were delighted by our lunch at Del Frisco’s just across the street. It was a vast step-up from the tourist traps on the pier, with great outdoor seating with beach view, and an elegant inside. Granted, it is pricey. My friends raved about their big juicy burgers. For about the same price I had the ahi tacos ($17.) The waitress warned me that it was a small quantity, but I found it more than ample (especially since I poached a few of my wife’s Parmesan-sprinkled house fries). Beautiful presentation: four 3-inch crispy tacos set up on a rack, each loaded with guacamole and raw tuna, and topped by a squiggly line of wasabi garnish. It was a deliciously balanced mix of flavors, enhanced by the crunch of taco shell. (About three good bites per taco. ) Perfect for a lunch, even after pedalling 56 miles through LA on Route 66. Wine and beer selection was also excellent.
