Hello Betty pairs a stunning ocean view with a Baja-inspired menu that includes ceviches, oyster shooters, and delicious tacos filled with everything from pork belly carnitas to fried avocado.
Top Chef: All Stars winner Richard Blais is behind Juniper & Ivy, a Little Italy restaurant that's making moves to put the San Diego dining scene on the same level as New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The refined menu is nothing if not creative, and dishes like lobster congee with beef sausage, wagyu short rib with Gruyere-rye bread pudding, and vindaloo-rubbed filet carpaccio prove that Blais' cooking inspiration isn't limited to one cuisine. That said, one of the best things on the menu is also the simplest: the buttermilk drop biscuit with smoked butter.
Werewolf is an American Pub with awesome specials: $2 Taco Tuesdays, Wing Wednesdays (flip a coin for half off!) and from 8pm-close every Monday you can play rock, paper, scissors for half off your drinks.
Peri Peri has delicious South African fare, including curried lamb kebabs called sosaties, and beef sausage flavored with coriander called boerewors.
Great for Chinese comfort food, Lucky Liu's Downtown has top-notch dumplings, egg drop soup, and the Gaslamp's only weekend dim sum.
At The Cravory, you can be sure that all of your cookie needs will be met. This Midway bakeshop specializes in wacky flavors made just the way you like 'em: each cookie is at once soft with a gooey center and perfectly crispy edges for a truly satisfying treat. Flavors range from sweet Salted Caramel Cream, citrus shortbread, and toffee coffee, to savory options like a pancake and bacon flavored cookie.
Shrimp and grits, pulled pork sandwiches, and fried chicken biscuits with sides like red beans & rice with andouille, mac & cheese, and garlicky collard greens -- ACME Southern Kitchen needs no other introduction.
The Flight Path is perfect for nibbling on some bacon and Brie sliders while you enjoy their extensive, and rotating, wine list.
This resto places emphasis on locally-grown ingredients in its seasonally-inspired cuisine. There's even an herb garden on the roof, which is about as locally-grown as you can get.
