I organize a monthly night out for parents in my kid's playgroup (moms & dads). People tend to not want to stray far from the North Park/Hillcrest/Normal Heights area. I try to keep the cost fairly reasonable (it's nice if there are entrees in the $12 range, just to not exclude anyone). And we have some people who don't eat red meat. And it's nice if we can make reservations. Easy, right?
Places we've gone:
Saigon (on El Cajon)
Takeout from Lefty's & Phil's
Brazil by the Hill
Anything that's not on my radar?
I'm thinking about that Mexican place that replaced Tazablanca.
Khyber Pass (but parking is soooo bad around there).
I think Jayne's might be a little pricey. Maybe the Linkery?
