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

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

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

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.

San Diego restaurants OPENINGS (2015 edition)

IMHO, if that poster wants to be taken as a serious food blogger in this town, they need to develop their own reliable contact list to be considered credible (as many others have already done, i.e. San Diego Food Finds, Kirby's Cravings, Darlene Horn {who now writes for Zagat}, etc.

Visiting San Diego - Not to miss suggestions please!

Never eat "local" oysters anyway...not even the trendy Baja oysters. The waters in these parts is too warm in my opinion to produce good, briny oysters.

San Diego restaurants OPENINGS (2015 edition)

Checked it out last night, the place was packed. Minor changes to the Azul interior, mostly the new mahogany backbar. I had not been to the UTC location for a few years, seemed to me that they have really raised their prices. Least expensive steak on the menu is $50.

Saturday lunch w/water view

Bertrand at Mr. A's and The Marine Room no longer serve lunch on Saturdays, other than that +1 on all of your recs.

Regional, sit-down Mexican reccos for the parental units

That restaurant in Del Mar is no longer related to or associated with the people that own El Agave in Old Town. Not sure what happened there.

I believe that must have been a hallucination.

Caesar Salad

Totally agree! As DD has pointed out many times, the older guys tend to know what they are doing, but I find younger servers get a little too happy with the worcestershire. Tableside prep allows you intervene to suit your taste.

San Diego CLOSED Restaurants: Thread Four (2014 edition)

Never looked interesting to me, so never tried. Felt the East Coast focus (at least from what I read) was off base for this town. I kinda miss KG.

Lunch in Pacific Beach

Stopped at Iron Pig for some takeout last night. That interior is very austere, nothing but bar stools at high top tables and big tvs. Pretty good spare ribs, big and moist with decent smoke flavor (they told me that they use mesquite and hickory). Good sides, spicy slaw. The special of the night was smoked pork shank on top of cheesy bacon smashed potatoes with house made sauerkraut and mustard. Really more of a tap room/bar with decent Q than a dedicated restaurant. Parking sucks.

Visit to La Jolla

Never been (being that is so politically unpopular, plus Papa is a former client that was less than a joy to work with). Anyway, NOT open for lunch.

The Belly Up -- When Should I Be There?

Might the guest singer be performing "Vehicle"? Perhaps a special dedication?

farmstands and the like

Dining Diva nails it again, and LATrapp is right about Chino's not selling avocados (but worth a visit just to check out the other produce - plus the beautiful drive). Since you are into this scene I would also recommend checking out two of our biggest and successful Farmers Markets, Little Italy on Saturday and Hillcrest on Sunday. Both have a large selection of local produce vendors, as well as prepared food stands.
