North County San Diego is not a area where Weddings of Distinction members venture too often, so when the opportunity to visit Vintana Wine + Dine in Escondido presented itself for our September meeting, it was a welcome experience into a restaurant that is one of San Diego’s finest!
Located in a rather unconventional location, above the Lexus car dealership in Escondido, CA, Vintana Wine + Dine is not affiliated with Lexus, but rather The Centre. The Centre is a space that hosts the restaurant on top, the Lexus dealership on the bottom, and in-between, professional offices, galleries and shops. It is quite a unique space!
Lunch was served in one of the private banquet rooms, with floor-to-ceiling windows that gave us a stunning view of life below. With the mountains in the backdrop, yet the conveniences of commercial life close by, it is easy to forget where you are for a moment. Plus, with the exquisite taste of the food (surf & turf) and dessert, all we can say is WOW!
In our “Tips from the Pros” segment, we heard from two members representing our wedding venues, and they shared some insight with the group about what it is like representing the actual wedding location. Big responsibilities!
The afternoon ended with a tour of the space. For many who had been to this location before, it was further proof that this restaurant is special; and for those who first time was then, going back is a must!!
