Unusual dinner venue to impress San Diego native?

Where would you suggest going for an unforgettable birthday dinner for two on a Wednesday night? Could be cheap or expensive, near or far, just something to impress even the most jaded San Diego diner!

Thanks Hounds!

      1. You can start out with a gondola ride with champagne in Coronado and stay at Loews resort/Hotel Del and dine at Mistral/1500 Ocean.
        Go up to Julian and dine at Jeremy's and stay in a bed and breakfast.
        Dine at the Marine Room/Piatti's/Gerorge's in LJ for dinner and stay at the LJBT&C and then go have high tide breakfast at the Marine Room.
        Dinner at the Grant Grill at the US Grant Hotel and stay the night.

        Lots of great last minute deals for 4-5* hotels on expedia..
        Have fun!

          1. Wow, thanks everyone! Hope to post back an exciting outcome.

            1. You could do the opposite and hit all the classic dive bars in SD..cab it and hit up all the great taco shops along the way to sop up all that booze...what a riot that would be!
              Pac Shores, Waterfront, Nunu's, Silver Spigot, Star bar, Kraken, Lamplighter, Club Marina, Catalina Lounge, Captains Quarters...
              Then go and stay at the 5* US Grant Hotel for $151 a night...they have great room service!
              This gets my vote!

                You can mention BC's name at each of these fine establishments- they are all no doubt deeply in her debt.
