A romantic dinner by a roaring fire is best enjoyed in a restaurant, and not around the neighbor's emblazoned wicker man. Retain your amorous appetite with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale cuisine and drinks from Flavor Del Mar in Del Mar. Perched above the Pacific in an elegant space adorned with plush cream and lime-hued furnishings, Flavor Del Mar serves fresh seasonal fare sourced from local farms and a broad selection of boutique wines from around the world. Quell onset hunger pangs with delicate bites of poached laughing bird prawn & avocado salad, smuggled into mouth coves under a zesty veil of pomegranate vinaigrette ($15). Heartier appetites run aground with seared, jalapeno-glazed king salmon ($26) paired with a chalice of Elixir chardonnay ($8) or Figeat sauvignon blanc ($13). With dinner starting at 5:30, finish your feast in the glass-walled, sunset-lit dining room with one of Flavor Del Mar's tongue-tingling desserts—like chilled passionfruit custard ($7)—and admire the sweeping ocean vistas framed by swaying palms, rippling waves, and pruny California raisins.
