Need Amazing Food this Friday

She and I are both pretty adventurous eaters. My experience so far has been that other than Japanese and Mexican San Diego doesn't really excel at ethnic food. OK, I have a soft spot for Asmara too but it doesn't really scream special occasion.

Need Amazing Food this Friday

I have a friend in town who is an erstwhile foodie and pastry chef but who never goes out anymore since she became a mother. She will be in town AND flying solo Friday night and I want to take her out for a really wonderful meal. Money is not a factor other than I want to splurge on her

Unfortunately, I'm reasonably new in town and don't know my way around San Diego restaurants as well as I would like. Any suggestions? I'm afraid that Restaurant Week may make this more of a challenge.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Should I Take My Hat Off at a Restaurant?

I recently went to lunch with a friend who is a Marine and was in uniform. The hostess was on the phone and a very young member of the kitchen staff was near the hostest stand. He whipped his hat off so fast upon seeing that uniform and then started desperately trying to seem like he could help us all the while tossing around a lot sirs and ma'ams. We had a hard time keeping our composure but I'm sure the kid's Dad would be gratified.
