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.

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.

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

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.

Stake in Coronado is getting great buzz, but it is VERY pricey.

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. ;)

Ahem. I picked what I thought was the better of the three she listed. Unfortunately, most "view" restaurants in SD aren't great food destinations for dinner. Except maybe Super Sergio's.

That is why we only have lunch there. Spectacular views and some of the best service in town, but I can't justify those dinner prices for the level of food that is served. Thanks for reporting back.

No surprise. What is surprising is that they held on as long as they did, I rarely saw anyone in there.

Coming from LA for a few days...

Joking aside, I agree with this post about the hostility of some posts on this board. Your philosophy of not yucking my yum has made a difference in how I approach things here.

I have felt that some opinions/criticism of posts I have made in past years regarding restaurants I liked were harsh and combative. I was new to an internet forum at the time and it did sting a bit, even though I respected this board members opinion.

Keep the give and take of opposite views in discussing topics, please drop the "know-it-all" attitude that some of us seem to take in expressing our opinions. Because...as the one that I have been referring to in this post has said himself, it is all subjective.

Lighten up y'all.

You missed the "Jane" part in the the infamous sentence: "Jane, you ignorant slut" from the early rendition of SNL's "Weekend Update". But good reference. Carry on. ;)

Barfly not a surprise, when will people figure out that sports bars/night clubs don't fly in LJ. Aroma Cafe probably got caught up in the mismanaged money by same ownership. Bought a few pastries there, not great. Neither will be missed, except for the large empty space in that complex.

It's a long drive down to Sea 180. Food is so/so, as you would expect.

Agree with eatmeup on the food at Tom Ham's. Lance. We didn't care for the food when Lance was at La V either. I would pick Mr. A's. If you make a reservation you can request a table with mountain, skyline and water views on the south side of the building.

Martini Lunch

Call Grant Grill and see if they are serving lunch on a Saturday. Classic.

Straddling the Border

I agree and think it is a bit of a stretch.
