Papa Luna's Empanadas would be a good choice.

San Lucas Fish House on Jamacha, where The Outback now lives. Very 80's. Very East County. A double whammy of scary.

Okay, home from the Sod, very intoxicated. Uber rocks. Beach Chick REALLY rocks because apparently she called the restaurant and arranged for our dessert. BC, we owe you!!...:))

Drinks:

I had Oban 14, husband had AnCnon (sp?)16. Mine was smooth as glass, husband's was all earth and peat. Both of us were happy.

Appetizer: The special, fresh water mozzarella wrapped in proscuitto with gold beets. Simple. and . Perfect. Excellent ingredients and simple prep beats crappy ingredients all day.

Salad: Caesar, with anchovies, good. More scotch for me and husband made the jump to a martini.

Entrees: I had the special, Linguine with Uni. Creamy, delicate, subtle, tooooo die for. Husband had the other special, Duroc Pork Chop in Black Truffle Butter. Again, beautifully simple made with excellent ingredients and we were both blown away. Pinot Noir with dinner.

Dessert courtesy of BC, their crazy delicious Tiramasu. Funny moment about this.....my screen name is a pseudonym, so the waiter asked me, "Uh, excuse me, are you a police officer?" "Uh, yes," I replied. Then he proceeded to explain that "a woman called about a police officer dining here and wanted to send you a dessert." He could not place the name, and it did not match our reservation, but he figured us out because of our appearance, which cracked us up. Limoncello for me and Port for husband.

Overall, another solid dinner at Baci. This place really satisfies the fix for white tablecloth fine dining and graceful service with style.

Can't wait to go back!!

Well, ACTUALLY, he is doing very well! We went to Sharp yesterday for his pre-op angiogram, and in layman's terms, his numbers looked so good his cardiologist and his surgeon agreed surgery was not necessary right now. They have put him on a medication therapy in lieu of chest cracking. So, dinner tonight will be a celebratory affair for no surgery.

Rez at 7! right now we are debating scotch vs martinis....oh the stress

Opening Day at Petco Park..Where to eat?

oh YEAH, totally clandestine! "Special detail" means I am working in an assignment other than my regular assignment. In this case, I am covering for regular range staff that is on vacation. And NO there is no food at the range, but there is decent food nearby.

"substantially improved..." ?????

Where to eat for a game? That's a tall order. The usuals come to mind, Lucky's, Blind Burro, Bub's, Lolita's....I suppose Comun could be worth a try.

Wet Willie's has morphed into "Blush," a slushie bar, which is what Wet Willie's attempted in the first place. Blush's website link on their FB page leads to a Go Daddy site. The Gaslamp continues the downward spiral to it's pre-Croce's crap glamour.

San Diego CLOSED Restaurants...2015 Edition

Encore (6th and F) is definitely closed. Nicky Rotten's and Gaslamp Tavern have each been closed for several months now for "remodeling," so they appear to be closed for good. and the Wendy's at First and Broadway? Just closed. flamed out.

Tacos!

This looks like it could be fun! My husband goes in for open heart surgery on April 22, so mid-May will be a good time frame for him to start heading out for social time.
