Restaurant
“For some impressively creative dishes, Yellow Brix Restaurant should be your first stop in Carlsbad. You might want to go in for a full three-course meal, as you shouldn’t miss their soups, salads, and appetizers.

They offer both a selection of fresh steaks and a menu of Italian cuisine, so there’s really something for every taste.”
