How do you eat tinned sardines?

Over rice or on a Caesar salad.

Small Redemptions of San Diego

The Alpine Pub. The new room is great. The additional staff they hired to accomodate the larger space have settled in like family.

Looking for a San Diego breakfast meeting space for 5 people- 9AM -10:15AM on Aug 28

Well, just a tad off the requested area, but Studio Diner would fit the bill. They have a large table in the right hand section of their dining room.

Bake Sale

Well, YES. I've been running around my substation telling everyone to try it.

Caffe Primo

What about that little "Quartyard" space? Have you been there? I walked through the other day but I did not have time to eat lunch.

Bake Sale

Has anyone been to Bake Sale? 815 F Street. The coffee is good. The tea is good. Their breakfast sandwich on their homemade bread is delicious. Their quiche tartlet is to die for. The sandwiches are served on their own very fresh, very wonderful bread. I have not sampled the desserts yet.

Kid Friendly Dining in SD

Little Italy or North Park. NOT the Gaslamp, unless you enjoy dodging hundreds of loud drunks.

I've been hitting up Cafe Virtuoso lately. 1600 National Avenue.

Nice dinner near Alpine?

The Grove Steakhouse is a safe bet.

San Diego restaurants OPENINGS (2015 edition)

Had a very small, expensive, sad, soggy salad today at Halcyon, 1400 Island Avenue. Very cool. Very hip. Very NOW. Also, very disorganized and scatterbrained. They were out of bottled water at 12:15, during the lunch hour, but then found some "in the back" at the last minute. Not a complete disaster mind you, but when the water is not stocked for the lunch hour on Friday, AND the food is just barely okay...confidence is not inspired.

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

Wasn't he the chef at Laurel?

Pizzeria Mozza - closing

Remember? I want to say it was Chad White at one of the fabric places in Point Loma...he was serving chicken cooked "sous vide" and people freaked out because they thought it was not cooked.

I think this phenomenon DOES happen SOMETIMES....(remember the sous vide debacle a few years ago?) but for some half-witted touristy IKEA inspired pizza joint? No, I think not.

steakhouse for a group of guys

Though, for Omnia, be prepared for a bottle service fee of at least 5K, for a table.

Fluxx is tried and true, and classy, which is rare in the Gaslamp.

Best dumplings in San Diego are at Lezzet Cafe

I'll take a little credit for that. I write a food column for our monthly newsletter. JT received a VERY good rating.
