Suggestions for Sports Arena/Rosecrans/Point Loma Area

Will be in San Diego for business for a week. Will be in the Sports Arena/Rosecrans/Point Loma area most of the time. I know there are loads of restaurants in the vicinity-- but which ones are worth a visit?

Would love lunch and dinner recommendations. Mexican, Chinese, Sushi, Fish, Burgers. Just about anything-- but would love to skip mediocre.

  1. Check out The Pearl down on Rosecrans.

    1. Second the Pearl for dinner. Jimmy's Famous American Tavern for huge burgers and comfort food right on the harbor. Point Loma Seafood or Mitch's for fish.

        Sessions Public- great cocktails, good apps.

            What do you like at Sessions Public? I went once and was very underwhelmed. I want to like the place - perhaps I'm missing the star dishes.

            As for the OP, I'd also add to the list Olive Tree Market in Ocean Beach for great sandwiches.

          Second Tender Greens. I went there for lunch again today and love it! We actually really like Umi Sushi on Shelter Island nearby. Nice place w nice people and fun rolls.

            My husband's grandson is named after Pearson's Deli. I won't get into the details. ;D

              must have been a heck of a sammie!

              1. re: foodiechick

                Love that..
                Pearson is a great name..
                I've heard of parents naming their child after cars, Scotch, conception cities but I've yet to hear one named for a fuel dock with a great deli..
                That is a classic Foodiechicka..

            2. Taste of the Himalayas on midway is very good.
