Had any great salads around town lately?

I think you need to hop flight and get a nice old school Waldorf at, well you know where!

'with tons of the hot sauce poured on' Now you have me craving some good chow with heat!

Do you pour hot sauce over your ice cream?

Mariscos Godoy alternative sought

I've had many good meals at Mariscos Negro Durazo in Lemon Grove. I used to frequent Marisco's Godoy, miss them.

Cane Sugar

Costco has organic cane sugar, which is the color and texture you described.

ARE YOU YELLING AT ME RB HOUND!!!!!!!!!!

Yeeseh... I just go out of church, be civil.

'A lot of breweries added some sort of restaurant or food trucks'. Maybe, I'd like to see some facts on that tid bit. However, food is NOT their main business, BEER is!!

A significant difference.

Contraction in breweries, what does this have to do with the topic line which is restaurant closings.

Good budget dinners ($10-20 pp) that aren't Mexican or Ramen

The Ritual Tavern has some great food offerings. Also as stated, Dan Diego's offers good food and value. Aqui es Texaco for excellent lamb barbarcoa. Hit up a few happy hours. Iron Pig in PB for some Q. If you're up for a road trip to Carlsbad, try Tip Top Meats, they offer a fillet dinner that includes a beer for $15.

Opening Day at Petco Park..Where to eat?

Get a beer and burger at bare Back in PB, the mgr is from Wisconsin. We chatted last Fri about Wis destroying Ky. He needed this after GB lost to SH in the NFC this past jan. He's got Wis blood in his veins.

'all I said is that they are substantially improved from last year'.

Not without wins and they have none as of this post. Maybe you hope they've improved, but don't put the cart in front of the horse.

I like the GM and the moves they've made, but until the get W's on the board, it's all hype and talk. The Cactus League doesn't count. As I said, I hope you're correct because they can't get any worse.

Opening Day at Petco Park..Where to eat?

'Expect most of the games to be way better attended than last year' They couldn't get much worse than last year.

How can you possibly say they're substantially improved when they haven't played an official game yet?

I hope you're correct, but till they actually play a game it's merely wishful thinking.

Scared me thought it was a full frontal lobotomy.

Were those options your DH wishes? So, how many countries did we visit?

If you've ever had ripe strawberries from So CA, you'll never buy that stuff in the clam shells.

Looking For Best Food With a View for Out of Town Visitor

'Well we went to Mr A's. Great service, magical views, good food'

Here is RH's sentence. Pretty clear to me, good food.

Looking For Best Food With a View for Out of Town Visitor

I just read your report and can't understand how you can say

'And don't get my wrong, the meal was good to very good'

'lobster bisque was so salty as to be almost inedible'

'My Duck confit although it had delicious crispy skin was overdone, dry, and not succulent'

'The potatoes on the plate amounted to about two tablespoons of 1/2 dice, cooked nicely but plain and too dry'

'Our out of town benefactor had the special Dover Sole which to me was overly fishy and kind of funky'

'my daughter's vegetarian lasagna (but she also hardly tried it and declined taking it home - a bad sign)'

Com'on

SS has a killer view which is very rich and extravagant. The plus is the food that comes with the view.

Week in Escondido/San Diego

A good family friendly place with good simple food is Tip Top Meats in Carlsbad. It's a butcher shop so you know the food they serve is fresh and very reasonable.

Interesting new list of America's best food cities.

Just to add to the debate on the value of such lists, here's a good one. Please notice the best in CA, the one that just closed in SD... HA!
