Galaxy Taco

Yup.

I was shocked at the great quality and huge size of these. Some were two bites! Among the best tasting oysters I've ever had.

Get the pulpo at Finca. Also like the sangria, and I'm not typically the sangria type.

Underrated restaurants in San Diego

Is there a quantifiable threshold by which one may determine "under-rated" v. "infrequently-mentioned" so I might avoide mis-posting?

Or is it just getting ridiculous?

Diners. Not the fancy ones, not the "dives" either. Grits and eggs.

Quick thanks for the help. Been to Bleu Whisk 3x and Izzys 2x and they're just what I wanted.

Mostly unsung and underreported is Gordon's dedication to quality food and sources. This is something about which he's nearly fanatical, but refuses to publicly trumpet. And he was doing it from the beginning, and not just for "show".

Ohmygoodness.

Whatever do you mean?

Aw.

What a thing to suggest!

That I'd use photography to suggest something other than a perfectly accurate representation of truth?

I'm wounded. Wounded.

(It was damn good- cooked like brisket, that boneless shortrib was a successful experiment. You can tell, because it has a smoke ring).

Pizzeria Mozza - closing

Time. It takes time.

And remember- there are a LOT of incoming residents over the next several years, so this project is in it's infancy. It's doing better than I expected...

New Idea - Cool Venue in North Park for a 12 person party -

Might check out photo studio rentals. There used to be a pretty good one in that area.

Can $3M food hall rival Pike Place?

Mozza failed- not because of the location, but because of dismal management. Appears the other tenants (Venissimo included) are doing well.

I promise the Ferry Building concept is familiar to the developer.

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

It was a diner kind of place called Hawthorne House. My father worked around the corner and would often go in for a grilled cheese- they would start his when they'd see him through the front window.

Then it was Fifth and Hawthorne- if I remember correctly it was a good chef- was it Doug Organ? Somebody like that.

After Fifth and Hawthorne it became Jilly's, a New Orleans kind of place.

Indeed!
Can you name the restaurant that took over from 5th and Hawthorne?

And bonus question:
What was the name of the place BEFORE 5th and Hawthorne?

Unfortunately, facts don't support your point of view.

Witness Spaghetteria and a few of the other Busalacchi's (experienced businessfolks!) efforts.

I believe this to be true of any restaurant, cuisine notwithstanding.
