San Diego - Great weather, but where is the outside dining?

JKCDN | May 1, 2012 11:30 AM

I am constantly searching for a restaurant to enjoy the sun and weather we pay for here in America’s Finest City. I have dreams of a large SUNNY grassy area that may have a view or some sort of garden, something that includes the color green and is outside… A place where parking is free/easy and the vibe is relaxed and not touristy…Time and time again, I find a small collection of wobbly tables facing the parking lot, golf course (lol) or tucked in the back facing a brick wall.

Stone World Bistro, Bernardo Winery, Hacienda de Vega and a few others in La Jolla (damn that parking) are fine but am I missing something…? Is that all the green space restaurants we have in a city of over three million people?

Where are the outdoor patios, gardens or seating areas in San Diego?
