The main reason we rarely venture there...or Hawaii. Even for the zip line.

What say ye, SuperChowers?

+1 for the Crespelli Al Pesto at Bus's. Not a big fan of much else there.

It is SUCH an improvement. The old place was an institution, but so happy to have the new place up and running.

Jakes at the Cove?

The owner of the property has pretty much finished the new building and it is stunning. I'm sure this group will be very successful with the location. That being said, having only dined at their Jakes property in Del Mar, my personal reaction to our new neighbor is MEH.

Little Italy Al Fresco Short Date Ideas

We have had great luck parking on Saturday in Little Italy around 2pm after the lunch and Mercato crowd thins out. Lovely outdoor patios (2) at La Villa. Somewhat quiet garden setting share a small plate or two and a glass of rose' at a two top or lounge sofa (or dessert and coffee). Pretty quiet in terms of other diners (as well as quiet for conversation) at that hour.

Bo-Beau La Mesa

Glad this thread popped back up. We met some out-of-town friends that stay with the wife's mother nearby so we suggested BB for dinner. Not to "yuck your yum", but my husbands's fried chicken was some of the worst I have ever had. A couple of tiny, boneless chicken thighs for $20 something bucks? And they were overcooked and dried out to nothingness. Really? How do you do that to chicken thighs? Mussels, quesadillas for kids - all meh. Won't be back.

Might try swinging by the Little Italy Mercato on Saturday. They have had a roasting setup in the past.

That's kinda sad. Haven't been for quite some time, might have to take advantage of it.

Hah...Old Trieste. I would be busted in a nanosecond there. Old industry haunt, especially at lunch.

San Diego restaurants, please

Prado? I highly recommend that you skip it. Lovely setting, horrible food.

OMG - Lefty's! First bar my father took me to in SF. Did you ever hear of the Iron Horse on Maiden Lane Chica?

Having not dined there yet...what exactly, is the "Crunchy" salad?

Also, I have learned my lesson about dining at a new (to us) venue on a significant date. I'm exposing Mr. Name...Wednesday was his birthday. xoxo

Craft Cocktails in Little Italy

I have found the bar service at Ironside among the slowest in the city. It holds up getting to and through the meal...even at lunch. Grumble.

Interesting read. My biggest take away was learning that South Beach serves their fish tacos in FLOUR tortillas (never eaten there). Who does that?!?!

Dined at JSix tonight and they said they were jammed as well. Probably a good thing for them since the redesign has pretty much cut the dining space in half and there were only three tables occupied tonight.

Interestingly enough, Chad White was commenting that he was doing 400+ covers per night at his newly opened ComĂșn Kitchen & Tavern during CC and credited CC attendees to being a large portion of the numbers.

BlueRibbon Rustic Kitchen. Yes, indeed.

Didn't find that breed of dog while you were in Chi-town?

BlueRibbon Rustic Kitchen. Yes, indeed.

Hate the name, but glad to see that they are keeping some of the more successful dishes on the menu (even if they are presented in a different or smaller format).
