The Water Grill

Dined once at lunch a few weeks ago. We enjoyed it. Husband is taking a client there next week. Just be sure to check the Padres schedule and avoid the area at all cost if there is a game that day/evening.

Underrated restaurants in San Diego

Especially the sourcing. Non GMO. Go Matt.

Galaxy Taco

I don't subscribe to Fakey's only nice review policy, nor his proprietary recipe claim (especially when said recipe is featured in a national food and beverage publication). Nevertheless, his recipes are sound. ;)

Bracero

Baja family thing. Kinda like potato taco. DD should weigh in, but don't thing that is found in most regions of Mexico.

Bracero

Please, no flames. Have yet to visit Blais place (the potential noise level overwhelms my desire to dine at the trendy new hotspot. Can't wait to visit Plascencia's new digs (although I'm sure that the noise level will be similar). I really don't think Bracero will "shift" towards Romesco's over time. Romesco's opened to cater to many Tijuana families that moved to the US to provide safe homes and schools and escape the (then) growing/gruesome violence and potential kidnappings that befell Northern Baja. If you dine at Romesco's on any regular basis you will witness the strong family oriented atmosphere.

The new restaurant is entirely a different animal. This is being launched by a very restaurant savvy chef and family that have demonstrated great talent in catering to many different dining profile groups in their family of restaurants in Tijuana, and where one of the leaders in forward thinking of restaurant concepts and design/energy in that city. This is a big investment and major expansion of their brand and I'm pretty sure they did their homework on the bustling Little Italy dining scene and are prepared to "bring it".

Private booths in local restaurants

Lots of those places in San Francisco, not many here. The only place that I can think of where you can draw curtains (only 3/4) is Davanti in Little Italy. Food is only ok.

Otherwise, many have private dining areas. Look into Water Grill, Cowboy Star, Eddie V's in both downtown and La Jolla.

Dickey's BBQ?

Dickey's was once a beloved small group of BBQ joints in TX. They first sold their soul to the devil when they began opening in TX airports, and quickly bottomed out with nationwide expansion. I'm still purging the memory of a once proud and authentic joint from my mind.

Who's familiar with 'old' San Diego restaurants?

Are you thinking of Milligan's?

"I tried barbecuing spaghetti" - hilarious! That laugh made my day.

Alfonso's La Jolla To Close...

The land owner is redevlopinng the property. Straight from the source - he has not yet found a new sight for the next restaurant. He is looking in North Park, City Heights and downtown.

Will Anthony's remain on the waterfront?

Also the LJ/PB border, Turquoise location.

Will Anthony's remain on the waterfront?

Agreed about George's (that is actually what Anthony's was doing while it had Star of the Sea), but not sure George and Trey's pockets are THAT deep. I just hope the Cohns take a pass on this one, with their new place next to C-Level opening soon I feel they have reached the top of the saturation threshold.

Erizo? From your lips to you-know-who's ears! Oh yeah, and the port.

Looking for suggestions! Staying in Little Italy from May 4 - 11. Thanks.

I think mixed use but dunno the details. No noise could compare to the current decibel level of replacing the water pipes on our street.

The Marengos are redeveloping the lot. Alfonso is looking at relocating in either North Park or downtown. Craptastic food and drink, but it is the end of an era.

Ha. Yeah, I'm having a couple of margies tonight at Alfonso's, but only because it is his last Cinco de Mayo.

Think I posted before I saw deckape's post about Krishna Mulvaney's on Mission. That is the other one I remember. The Mulvaney's in Coronado is where the marine bar/hangout McP's is now located.

There was also a Mulvaney's in Coronado (and I think 1 other location). The owner's son ran with a bunch of Coronado and Pt. Loma kids when I was a teenager.

San Diego CLOSED Restaurants...2015 Edition

Oddly (based on remarks on the view thread), one of the best steak tartare presentations we have had recently is at Mr. A's. At lunch. Brandt beef (which we really like). Not on the menu. Made to order. Expensive. Worth every penny.

I used to love the old tradition of mixed to order at the Whaling Bar, but they alway put too much "stuff" in it for my taste (even when I asked them to lighten up on certain ingredients as they went along). This one has always been spot on...at lunch. ;)
