San Diego Closed restaurants from the Down Economy

Ole madrid is being gutted and redesigned...don't know the name yet, but I do know that the owner of airport lounge, mauricio, is designing it...supposed to be "out there" conceptually

San Diego Best/Worst Neighborhoods for Restaurants

To have a competition amongst neighborhoods is merely a competion among the people who live there. Since 75% of restaurants fail in the first year and all good restaurateurs know their base clientele comes from within 5 miles...The food should generally reflect the neighborhood its in. And as gentrification pushes east from downtown, the next "new" food hotspot is gonna have cheap rent and a burgeoning "it" scene. That is until the new neighborhood comes to town. What's next Barrio Logan? In a nutshell, I appreciate neighborhoods with a longstanding reputation of getting people from outside the area to make the drive, wether or not it has a few new "hotspots" So, I'll take la jolla over most places and kearny mesa over posh North park

San Diego Best/Worst Neighborhoods for Restaurants

Everybody needs to remember that seaport village is not and was not ever intended to be for natives. It is a cash cow for the city and for those restaurants, believe it or not. All the restaurants are owned as a group and I know that the harbor House has had the same GM since the 80's...the reason why? because that trap hasn't been in the red for 30 years.
