Pack your sparklers for Avant, the gloriously sprawling new indoor-outdoor restaurant at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, now quietly open.

You’ll find this in the former home of El Bizcocho, the acclaimed restaurant that didn’t seem to know it was a little off-the-grid. It’s gone now, but don’t worry—they didn’t get rid of the golf course outside.

So here’s what you’ll do. Call up the Inn. Get a room, etc. It’s rustic and slower-paced and sunlit here. Then, when you’re ready, make your way to your table on the patio. It’ll soon be covered with all manner of truffle salami, soft-cooked duck eggs, lamb and maybe the 12-Vegetable Plate. There. Now you’re good on vegetables for a few days.

Which means you can focus on the half-dozen kegs of wine and the Sazeracs your meal requires, before you go play a few holes.
