Casual place near UCSD, N. County. Preferable gastropubs?


I'm planning a small get-together (graduation) with some family and friends in a month or so. I am looking for a low key place to have a late lunch/early dinner near UCSD or North county.

Possibly gastropubs (decent food and beer)- places like the Linkery and Ritual Tavern that is further south. Most of my friends lives in OC and North, so i'm hoping I save them the drive and parking on a Saturday night.

Around 20- per person on food is fine.

Any recommendations? or do we need to make the drive in town??

3794 30th St, San Diego, CA 92104

Ritual Tavern

      Ooh, right. There's a PrepKitchen in Del Mar, too (with more seating available). Good suggestion!

    2. I haven't been to this place, but it's new and intriguing and seems to fit most of your criteria (price, location, style):


      1. Aquamoree in La Jolla - self-described southern tapas bar with good food and drinks.

        1. great, I will go check it out soon! The prepkitchen and whiskandladle sounds good.
