concert near convention center s.d.

Hey hounds ,
I'd like to know where we could have some early dinner before a concert Tuesday night.

  1. Without trying to sound too much like a smart aleck, I think we really need more parameters (cuisine, price range, etc.) before we throw out suggestions. There are dozens of options in that area.

    You might try going through the recent Gaslamp recommendations on this board.

    1. Any place chow worthy in the area would be just fine. If I had something specific in mind I would have posted it.

      Thank you

        Molly's at the Marriott. Upscale seafood that's a substantial cut above "hotel food." The room is very attractive but no stuffy ambience there. Plus, the restaurant will validate your parking at the hotel, and it's walking distance to the concert venue.

          Thanks for your rec, Jim.
          It was yummy as well as a practical choice for the Viejas Bayside venue.

      2. p.s. gaslamp searchs are all from 03,04 and o5 .....may no longer be in business (?)

          kitchenhag - that area which you'll be is just south of what is called the "Gaslamp District". There probably was some sort of odditity when you did your search.

            The search default seems to sort by oldest threads listed first. You have to click on date again to get it to display most recent.

        2. It seems the past few weeks have seen a great many discussions about places to eat in the Gaslamp.

            Also, a search on "convention san diego" turns up a number of recent threads.
