Foodie staying in Gaslamp Saturday night -- looking for restaurant recommendations
Won't have a car, so need someplace that we can walk to or take a short cab ride to. Any genre of food is fine -- mostly just want it to be delicious. Fresh seafood would be a plus. Thoughts?
Avenue 5 is decent although I haven't been in a long time. Not really worth the trip in my opinon. It is solid, but just another san diego restaurant that offers decent value and closes early.
If you are looking to take a cab outside the gaslamp, it really opens up the options: Yakatori, Hane Sushi, Farmhouse, Jaynes Gastropub.
Even Puerto La Boca.
If you stay close to the gaslamp, mcgrath pretty much nailed it.
Yeah, I went about two years ago also (I think it opened around that time), and I liked it.
But the early hours, and the fact that it is not really unique has kept me away.
It also has many better competitors in my opinion:
I even like Starlight and the now defunct Modus more.
I was there for a conference in January. Ended up eating twice at Cafe Chloe. Nice bar to sit at and have a great meal and to many glasses of wine. It is on the far end of the Gaslamp, I was staying at harborside. I took a cab to Chloe and then did a nice walk back to the hotel. It was so darn outstanding the first night I went back for a rerun the second.
