Antica Trattoria

Renewing this thread.

We dined at Antica Trattoria last night. We loved it and will definitely go back.

We started with the Carpaccio appetizer. Excellent. A perfect deployment of wonderful peppery arugula to frame the meat.

We split the Caesar salad. Fresh croutons and not overdressed, YAY.

I had the short ribs and Husband had the crab stuffed salmon. Both were EXCELLENT. Special mention goes to the bit players: the string beans, squash, and carrots. Ordinarily these actors are forgettable, but when a restaurant gives a damn about quality, even the spear carriers shine.

I have been reading about this place on Chow for years and now I am kicking myself for not having dined there earlier. The service was spot on, the overall ambience was lovely, and the food was delicious.

My Sergeant collects SD memorabilia. He brought in a copy of "Today," magazine, from November 1979. I snapped a few random photos from the restaurant section.

Prepared lunch/dinners in San Diego (city)

DD, I owe you one. I just returned from Windmill Farms. They had an excellent selection of affordable, healthy, prepared meals AND they had the Dinner-A-Go-Go brand in the deli section.

Thank you all! We had the Brussels Sprouts, the Pork Belly flatbread, and the BBQ chicken flatbread. All delicious. The service was attentive, efficient, and friendly. We were a difficult trio to wait on, as we were deeply engaged in conversation and ordered food in a random manner, but he got it right. I'll go back with my husband.

Opinions please. What are your favorite places for prepared meals. I am looking for grocery stores/delis/etc...that have good quality choices for grab and go options. Any places in the north part of the city would be most appreciated.

Ha! I'm curious about how they will fare in that area. The prices are fairly high for very small portions and middling quality.

C+....French fries were Sysco....bread was small and cheap....a little soggy....the meat did not have a smoked flavor. Good and tender, but very fatty. The sauces were completely unforgivable, tiny packets of some random Sysco-y thing. I was expecting a good homemade sauce.

Don't call us we'll call you.

Pardon the alcohol heavy list.

The Dodgers are in town along with Biotech (and the Biotech protesters) and Sunday's Intervention at The Hard Rock is expected to be a complete cluster. Pass the G & T.

I know it's illegal. I would like it to not be illegal. This is an agree to disagree subject.
