Fine Dining in San Diego Conference center area

conference doc Mar 9, 2007 09:57 AM

Anyone have suggestions for GOOD food, cost no object, need to impress clients within walking distance or possibly cab ride around the conference center? Prefer not steakhouse or sushi---need good food, atmosphere and service. Dakota and Osetra were recommended and did not at all live up to expectations.

    Molly's might be a good option.

      Walking distance? Oceanaire.

      Really short cab ride, or a very long walk - The Westgate Hotel or possibly Grant's Gill in the U.S. Grant Hotel. Hotel dining in San Diego isn't insipid, and often better than free-standing restaurants.

      Short cab ride - Bertrand's at Mr. A's. 13th or 14th floor resto, only restaurant with downtown views. Food is usually pretty good. If you need to impress this is not a bad choice - http://www.bertrandatmisteras.com/men...
