San Diego, stuck downtown for convention
Okay San Diegans. I'm a SF poster going to be stuck downtown for convention for 5 days next week. So what's decent and hopefully interesting downtown or Gaslamp district? Extra points if its open on Monday.
Also extra points for a super good cocktail bar, especially one that can make a proper classic Sazarac.
Rama's is a great Thai restaurant, right across the street from the convention center on 4th. Very nice ambiance too.
Cafe Chloe for French bistro, Neighborhood for burgers, Basic for the mashed potato and bacon pizza, Royal India, The Field Irish pub, JSix
this is the most frequent post on the board. Do a search for Gaslamp or Gaslight (misnamed on the board) and you'll turn up lots of options.
Quarter Kitchen at the Ivy Hotel for upscale is fantastic. Red Pearl for Fusion is pretty good and it's fun. JSix is worthwhile...kinda, sorta California cuisine...You can also take the trolley and have some fantastic food experiences....Magnolia's off Euclid, Incredible mexican food in Barrio Logan, etc.
hope this isn't too late,but if it were me, I'd spring for a cab one night and take the short cab ride up to Hillcrest (very close to downtown) to eat at Chilangos. moderately priced Mexican of a type not often found in SF.
