San Diego: Best Local, Seasonal Cuisine?

not the bad Steve Nov 25, 2008 08:39 AM

Thanks for all of your help with my earlier post seeking late-ish Mexican. We ended up at El Cotixan, and were happy.

What can you suggest for great food that is both local and seasonal around SD?

Thanks again!

    The Fishery in PB always has seasonal, fresh food and succulent fish. If I had to choose my favorite restaurant in SD, this would probably top the list.

      The Grant Grill at the US Grant Hotel has great local and seasonal menu, particularly the tasting menu which seems to change every couple of weeks with whatever fresh ingredients that they can get. Compared to most Gaslamp area resaurants, fairly reasonable prices and much better quality

                    Yup. Alchemy's website still has its "Lorem ipsum dolor" filler content. So its hard to know exactly what's going on there.

                    However, there are some provisional menus.
