Loved YellowBrix

Carlsbad, NM

#1 Feb 10, 2013
Just moved to the area and arrived on a Sunday...being from Scottsdale, AZ I am used to fine dining with lots of choices. Unfortunately Carlsbad has few choices especially on a Sunday. But to my pleasant surprise I stumbled onto YellowBrix...Carlsbad seems to roll up the streets on Sunday and YellowBrix was virtually the only decent looking place open. The walls surrounding the restuarant were decorated with twinkling lights and the large patio looked very inviting. I found out later that the building was built in 1928 and had recently been completely restored. It was simply beautiful inside!...The waiter, a very nice lad named Dalton, was very attentive and his service was excellent. The menu was amazing, even a foodie like me couldnt decide what to order. I went for the Lamb Meatballs (out of this world) as an appetizer and the Salmon for the main course. The chef knocked it out of the park with that entree!...not too fishy and melted in my mouth!...Much to my surprise, for dessert, they had a Gelatto Bar with flavors to die for...The Chardonnay I had was from Northern New Mexico and was very tasty. I found out later that the Somalier who recommended the wine was in fact the owner (Dan)...I found him to be very knowledgeable about wine and an excellent host. All in all a wonderful experience and I cant wait to go back and sample some of their other offerings...

I've had so many bad experiences eating in restaurants in Carlsbad, that I just stopped eating here and go to Artesia or Roswell to eat in a good restaurant. I shop, go to eat and make a pleasant day out of it!:-)

I lived in Scottsdale 10 years ago. I ate at some of the better restaurants in the area on a regular basis. All I can say is wow things must have really gone downhill since I left if you think Yello Brix is on par with those establishments. Being an actual foodie who rarely watches the Food network I can say that Yellow Brix on my list is a no go, you pay way to much for what I would consider medicore food.

Don't go in there at lunch wearing work clothes. Me and my wife went there for lunch and we stood there for at least 10 mins ,while the retards looked at us without saying a word,I guess my clothes were too dirty. I will never try to eat there again.
