Coming from LA - what to eat in San Diego?

Craft Beer, Burgers and Fish Tacos, SD has them nailed, you'll do well with those options. Sad to hear you're writing off some good ethnic chow possibilities on the assumption that LA has it all.

Your Favorite Place to Get a Grass-fed Burger and/or Steak in the San Diego Environs

Did you notice that the meat is organic but, not the fat. Maybe the meat is grass fed, though not stated, and the fat is not.

Maybe like a dog fence, your collar will give you a shock if you go out of bounds. Remember to bring your passport if you plan to enter east or north county. BTW - nice ride!

Restaurant for corporate foodies

All over the country where, care to elaborate, Minneapolis perhaps. Y'all be happy to rid yourself of those black flys. Y'all makes me think of NOLA not Minnie. Mcgrath had a good choice in Cowboy Star, very consistent but, no panache. And yes, we can be edgy!

We'll let you be the judge of SD and all it's beautiful surroundings, not to mention the climate which is flawless. As for skill and panache, nope not here but, you'll find some good recs from us CH'ers for sure. You didn't indicate where you're group is from but, Maybe Romesco's for Mex, Café Chloe if you can book it for 15, George's Modern and for the corporate feel, Roy's.

Table No. 10 (East Village)

Careful DD, the menu doesn't state how many ounces that bad boy is. That's usually a clue.

Ahh... Little Josh has taken care of that in a post down stream, thanks. Hey, for a 'best list' the huffer didn't do too bad. At least his list has some semblance of finding good places to it. Looks like he did more than look at Yelpers crappy reviews.

Yes it does, I'm referring to a time just a tad further back, like 'In the beginning'.

Well Joshie, if you really think about it, Man evolved by eating a diet of fruits and veggies, which means our digestive systems don't tolerate meat well. Man only used animals for sacrifice, you know back in the day.

The thing is, by the time you get done dealing with a whole fish, getting it prepped etc, is it worth it. Plus, I would rely of a place like Catalina to ensure that I'm getting the best quality product vs Joe the hobby fisher dealing his lucky catch of the day, or yesterday.

Oh great, now I have to sling a whole fish over my shoulder, schlep it over to get gutted and filleted and all for what probably will be more costly than say going to a place like Catalina Fish Market. Do you think this concept is going to survive, really.

Philadelphia Hounds coming to San Diego for a week in October

If you will have a car, get on the 5 south you'll find an exit where the Toys R Us is located on Industrial Ave. The Marisco's el Pescador fish taco truck will be located in the parking lot. Excellent Baja style fish tacos, seafood tostada's and other styles of seafood tacos. If you're in the mood for lamb barbacoa, Aqui es Texcoco in Chula Vista, just google the name to find it. Great Pho in a fun atmosphere at OB Noodle House in Ocean Beach.

Porchetta sandwich on a crusty chiabatta bread roll. Is there any place close by that makes a great porchetta with crispy potato chip like skin.

SD Gets Nod for What It Does Best in CA Rating

Well, I think this article's mention of SD's specialty in the CA ranking, got it correct.

WSJ Gives SD Some Props

Great article El C. WSJ got it right on the craft beer point, then generalized on some of the chef cuisine movement to Pacific Coast and not specifically SD. Then graduated to mention some SD places like CU and Chipotle Mexican Grill really Chipotle, and the Kensington and OB areas that are moving towards better cuisine. Not a lot of places for the 8th largest city in the US, so is the surf up or are we still experiencing ankle slappers . There is hope!
