So what do we think of the 2011 UT Dinning Guide?

I just noticed the Union Tribune published their 2011 Dinning Guide on today (or at least I noticed it on the front page today) and I was wondering what the folks here thought about it. I'm only just starting to go through the lists so I can't conclusively say what I agree or disagree with but I am a bit disappointed that their "hottest neighborhoods" only lists a few choices in only two neighborhoods. On the upside, this year they seem to have taken the opinions of supposed experts instead of a popularity poll open to the public (as they've done in years past) so at least Taco Bell isn't listed as the best Mexican food place. ;)

  1. I was disappointed by the weirdly myopic view on best neighborhood for dining. I'd put North/South Park above Hillcrest any day.

    1. It will be in print with tomorrow's paper. Today only has the Food Section.

      1. Reading the "Superdiners" over some time it often seems that Ricardo Heredia (together with Andrew Spurgin) is nearly the only one with real interest in food beside the obvious choices.

          1. It's far better than the abomination that is the UT's reader's polls.

            1. It is funny how 3 years ago no one knew the word "Gastropub" in san diego.

              Now you can't read a single article without someone saying "Gastropub" every other sentence.

              That and "it's a little 'indie' restaurant..."

                What do you suggest instead of "indie". Mom & pop? Non-chain? Self-op? Independent?
