Sorry, but it's true. Over the span of seven different visits to San Diego in the last two years, I have left each time so underwhelmed. I've read your posts, and it seems that many of you locals admit that the restaurants in San Diego are subpar in service and quality food. It also seems that this city lacks any ground-breaking chefs. I am from Manhattan, so come from a very biased point of view. That said, I have lived and still frequent such cities as Seattle, San Francisco, Boston, and Memphis. These areas are so much more advanced in all culinary areas. I actually feel sorry for San Diego residents.
I suppose you want to know which restaurants I have frequented. Just this summer, during my thee-month stay, I patronized:
The Linkery--found it to be overrated, over priced, and rude service
Face it, San Diego, you have a long way to go in the restaurant world. Sure your weather rocks, but other than that...whatcha got?
