We're headed to San Diego in August for a wedding with our baby for our first trip as a family! The last time I was in San Diego must have been at least 15 years ago so I really have no idea of its offerings. Since we're going to be with Baby Suebee, fine dining or anything resembling fine/quiet dining is not in the cards, but we're hopeful we can still find some chow-worthy destinations.
We're staying in Old Town to be near the wedding reception (at Zocalo) so ideally we'd like to find places in or near Old Town. Is this a particularly touristy part of town and if so are there any hidden gems? What neighborhoods are near Old Town and what spots would you recommend in these neighboring areas?
Should Hodad's in Ocean Beach be a priority? Also, are there any places to hit along the way from LA?
Thanks San Diego hounds for your recommendations and insights!
