San Diego Caterers

I am looking for someone to partially cater a party I am having at our home next month (30-40 people). I don't need servers or anything fancy, but I would like very good food. Ideally, we'd like some buffet type dishes that we could pick up (or have delivered). I plan to cook for the party too. Any recommendations? I know about all the big caterers (Waters, Festivities, French Gourmet, etc.) -- I would prefer someone small who would cost less and be interested in doing a smaller, more casual party. I wish Chez Odette was still in business -- they would be perfect! (Remember them? They had the little shop on 5th in Hillcrest several years back....)

First visit to San Diego - What should I not miss?

For Mexican, you CANNOT beat Tony's Jacal in Solana Beach. It's totally old school. It is "americanized," but you aren't travelling to Mexico... Everything on the menu is made from scratch daily. They've been open since 1946 with the same family working there 6 nights a week.

For an authentic "Mexican" experience, go to Las Quatras Milpas in Barrio Logan.

For French, Tapenade is the very best in my opinion. My husband and I eat there as often as possible. It's a nice La Jolla non-touristy place with outstanding food. It's all about the food at Tapenade.

I would also not miss In-n-Out Burger. It's a classic Southern California place and the burgers are awesome (not a Rocky's or Hodad's genre, but so, so good).

I agree with the Point Loma Seafoods recommendations and a bunch of others already posted.

Looking for Good Mid-to High End Restaurants in San Diego

Tapenade in La Jolla is outstanding.

Breakfast in SD

I don't think you can beat Hob Nob for breakfast. Their coffeecake (changes daily) and corned beef hash (not on the menu) are outstanding!
