San Diego Dinner Help....

Hey Chowhounders!

I'm a Texan heading out to sunny San Diego next week for a conference. We'll be staying downtown right by the convention center, and we're rolling without a car. I'm always a little hesitant about restraunts in such a touristy area, but it is what it is as they say.

Can you guys give me some recommendations, walking distance to the convention center would be best, but a reasonable cab ride is not out of the question.

I'm rolling with a batch of finicky Texas bubbas, so I'll be trying to avoid prissy places (though if there's a really good prissy place, I might blow the team off while they go to Applebees or whatever and hit up the prissy spot on my own....), but at least once night will be a sushi orgy....I'd appreciate any good suggestions you've got!

Thanks y'all!

  1. I've heard good things about Cowboy Star. It's a steakhouse.

      1. You guys will for sure like Cowboy Star. Should make you feel a little at home. Cafe Chloe is also a spot in the area you'll be in. May or may not be deemed prissy by your friends but I think the food will stand up to inspection.

        Hane Sushi is probably an $11 cab ride with tip from the convention Center. If you're looking for good Sushi in the DT area, this should be the only place on the list for you.
