Yet another Vegas Vacation...

This sounds like an awesome trip. We are going in June, though we have not finalized our dining plans. Yusho is on our short list so I am looking forward to your trip report.

Technically, the Gaslamp encompasses 4th Avenue to 6th Avenue, and Broadway south to L Street.

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

There is still a Pinnacle Peak in Santee.

If you could change the restaurant/bar scene in SD. .

I would move all my favorite places to East County.

And bring back foie gras.

Cheesecake Factory? CLOSED.

Yusho - my thoughts as to why you should be excited about visting the strip instead of Spring Mountain

VERY cool. How were the prices? We are going to do one casual dinner and one blowout dinner. Is Yusho blowout worthy? Our budget is $300-ish, for the two of us.

Thank you for this? Are they open? We have tickets for Blue Man on a Wednesday night in June, and this place sounds delish.

I am reigniting this thread.

Do these recommendations still stand? We have booked a June trip, complete with show tickets. We are considering a late night dinner after one of our late night shows, (10 pm show on Tuesday night).

Thank you in advance!

Any good deli in San Diego?

Not a jewish deli, but...

we ate at Antonelli's in El Cajon.

LOVED.

They do not use dreaded pickle relish in their tuna, they use celery.

Their grilled pastrami is to die.

Beach Chick speaks the truth!

Please help me finalize dining plans

I have no recs for you, but I want to thank you for this thread! Husband and I are planning a trip in June and are will have one "mega" dinner on the strip. I had not read about Bartolotta before. The menu looks amazing, but still within a do-able financial range for a special dinner.

We will have one day to run around off-strip, so we might check out Curry Zen and hunt down some dumplings.

I am going to piggy back this thread for more recs...:)

Impact of plastic bag ban?

Call me a cynic, but I think the bag ban has more to do with grocery stores trying to squeeze more money from customers than a love for planet earth.

So, rode by Nicky Rottens last night, doors were shut and butcher paper covered the windows. Apparently they are remodeling. Hope they are truly remodeling, not "closed for remodeling."

The Strip vs Fremont/Downtown

Thank you! Yeah we are probably going to stay exclusively on the strip.

The Strip vs Fremont/Downtown

Right? We keep going back and forth, and we are currently favoring the strip.

Outdoor dining in the Gaslamp District?

"I wouldn't want to hang and dine on a sidewalk in the Gaslamp with all the drunk idiots walking about...some places better than others."

Speaking from first hand experience in dealing with said drunken folk, this is a legitimate concern. Thursdays and Fridays before 9pm are safe, but after that, and on Saturday nights, the "Good evening" crowd gives way to the "F*** you!" crowd, which inevitably becomes the "Hey watch where you are going" crowd that communicates via their left hook.

Thank you! I had not even considered Bellagio a possibility, so I will check that out.

The Strip vs Fremont/Downtown

Thank you! We are adventurous foodies, but also enjoy an excellent steak. So, we will probably go for one steak dinner and one other, more creative dinner.

The Strip vs Fremont/Downtown

Is there a significant difference in quality? The Strip prices kill the wallet. Is it worth the splurge? Or are the Fremont/Downtown restaurants just as good?

Thank you!

Outdoor dining in the Gaslamp District?

Blue Point and Searsucker have outdoor dining and are located at 5th Avenue and Market Street.

Blue Point has steaks and seafood. The service is solid and it's a fine dining room. Searsucker is a hipster joint. I have not dined there but people rave about the grits.
