Leave your passport at home

There’s a lot to love about Barrio Logan; the rich history, the vibrant culture, the burgeoning art scene (Art Walk on the second Saturday of each month is not to be missed). And of course the food! You don’t need a passport to experience authentic Baja-style seafood. Just grab a seat at Mariscos el Pulpo. […]

A cocktail bar with food

Hundred Proof is a cocktail bar with food. To be clear, Hundred Proof is a cocktail bar. With food. As previously reported (“Something wicked good is coming”, issue #227), Hundred Proof is the latest brainchild of the white-hot Trust Restaurant team. The shiny new bistro exudes a playful sophistication: a wall-sized reproduction of an iconic […]

Booze and bites with a view

The Nolen is a breezy rooftop bar on the 14th floor of the Courtyard by Marriott in downtown San Diego. I stopped in one balmy afternoon enticed by their happy hour prices. The Nolen is named for John Nolen, a city-planning visionary who mapped out San Diego’s early development. As a former planner for the […]

A bit of Boston in our backyard

Pete’s Seafood and Sandwiches is an unpretentious diner serving great food in North Park. Owner Peter DeCoste, with 30 years’ experience operating seafood restaurants in Boston, decided it was time to “bring those flavors to San Diego” and opened his casual eatery 18 months ago. Good for us he did. There are two dining areas […]

A forkful of comfort in every bite

When my furry four-legged friend was alive, I would take him for a short walk to his groomer on Park Blvd. Along the way I noticed a pie shop was under construction and made a note to check it out when it opened. The mental note was forgotten until recently when I decided to drop […]

Location, location, location

I’ll admit I’ve had a long love affair with Balboa Park, and adore its lushly landscaped grounds, numerous museums and secluded trails. It’s no surprise then that I found myself at The Prado one recent warm spring afternoon for a nosh and a cold beverage. The restaurant, a member of the Cohn Restaurant Group (CRG), […]

Fresh seafood prepared simply

Oscar’s has been on my radar for years because there is usually a line of people inside which indicates good […]

A good burger begins with a good patty

At one point or another, most people have the desire to chow down on a really good burger. When hit by the occasional urge, I seek out the tastiest off-the-beaten-path burgers, favoring mom-and-pop establishments over local chains and corporate franchises. “Boo-Boo”, a burger aficionado and a fuzzy cuddly muscle-bear of a man, had worked up […]
