Small plates in San Diego
I just got back from my beloved Chicago and experienced some wonderful meals. It seems like the newest food trend is small plates. Chefs from Publican, Bristol, and Volo have done a wonderful job of creating small plates that highlight local, organic, and seasonal tasting menus. In addition, places like Flo and Lula offer an inviting and casual atmosphere where friends can lounge, chat, drink, and eat local delicacies for hours at a time.
I'm fairly new to San Diego and our friends are visiting us this weekend. Does anyone have any suggestions in San Diego like the aforementioned? Thanks in advance.
I'll throw in my vote for Bite as well.
Monday is half price bottles of wine (doesn't help with your weekend guests but good to know)
We have had about 10 of the dishes there
Hits were The Lamb meatballs, Pot roast, Crab carbonara(sp?), Stuffed figs, and the smoked chicken Pizza.
Misses - Pizza bianca, Chicken skewers.

Since like 2002 in San Francisco.
For San Diego, Jayne's Gastropub, Starlight lounge and Modus (although I havent been there in a while.)
You can't go wrong with Wine Vault and Bistro, either their Friday Bistro menu or their Saturday 5 courses for $25. The food is excellent, well-priced, and a nice wine selection to boot.
