Chef Joe Busalacchi did it his way at A Modo Mio

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Restaurant families these days are something of the past. In many culture’s it was a tradition to pass the business down from generation to generation. Some restaurants I know of in the country have been operating with the same family for over 50 years. Sadly, you just don’t see that much anymore. In […]

Tofu is the star at Tao

With only weeks before Pride, we all are watching our calories and carb intake so we are in the best shape to walk down University Avenue with our shirts off. For me, it is cutting out meat, eating a ton of vegetables, loading up on proteins and doing as much cardio as I can. Normally […]

Celebrate the season of rosé wines

One wine that, with its release each year, carries a worldly celebration. The little pink wine known as rosé starts a season of fresh crisp wine drinking. Its production and release at this time every year is the perfect spring and summer accessory for our approaching warm San Diego weather. For those of you who […]

San Diego Wine Bars: Some are sparkling, while others are dry

LGBT weekly wine bar

Mastering the art of wine drinking is not as easy as it sounds. The path that goes along with the study can be a lot of fun, but the study itself is where the challenge lies. Tasting wine and drinking wine are two very different things and there is a science to both. I have […]

Jaynes Gastropub: The best of both worlds

RESTAURANT REVIEW Jaynes Gastropub 4677 30th Street San Diego, CA 92116 619-563-1011 If there was an award that went to the definition of gastropub, it would go to Jaynes. Pubs, as they are known, are causal drinking establishments with little emphasis on food and are a big part of the British culture. Gastronomy is the […]

Break out your ’60s pearls for this vintage mid-century haunt

In San Diego, our neighborhoods are all very unique. Probably so much so, that we tend to never leave them. I often talk to people who live in North Park that never venture to Little Italy. Some Hillcrest residents stay within the triangle of Bankers Hill, University Heights and Mission Hills. Even La Jolla sometimes […]

Soul is the star of this Mexican restaurant

The abundance of Mexican restaurants in San Diego is just another reason I love this town. We have everything from high-end establishments to the 3 a.m. “hole in the walls,” which we all must admit we love. Even our Old Town neighborhood is dedicated to celebrating Mexican culture and cuisine. Some of my favorite Mexican […]
