Yet Another SF Hound Seeking Advice

sunnyside | May 5, 2014 03:44 PM

Coming down for our yearly long weekend visit over Memorial Day weekend, staying at the Omni DTLA just 2 blocks from Grand Central Market.

Our usual routine is to drive straight to Langers for lunch, but recent posts about Greenblatt’s have me thinking I ought to try something new (my wife thinks that’s blasphemy, but she orders the No. 19 and I’m a pastrami and mustard only guy so what does she know).
Last time down we hit Langers, Guisados, Baco Mercat, Parks, Farmers Market (Little John toffee, Bob’s Donuts, Short Order), Central Market (G&B coffee, Egg Slut), Bludsoes (Fairfax). Have previously been to Animal, Gjelina, Pizzeria Mozza, Versailles, Coni Seafood, Sweet Rose Creamery, Beachy Cream, Bay Cities, Tacos Baja Ensenada, Ricky’s Fish Tacos, Bludsoes (Compton).

Thinking about: Bestia, Sotto, Night & Market, Jitlada, Son of Gun, Plan Check, Chichen Itza, La Casita Mexicana, Connie & Teds, Mariscos Jalisco, Mexicali tacos, Portos for pastries, Donut Man (seems like a haul).

We have good friends in Santa Monica who we always dine with so not necessary to stay in DTLA for all eats.

Sotto and Bestia look great, but also look similar to menus available in SF. I could be happy eating Langers, Bludsoes and Guisados all weekend but always like to try some new places. Friday night would prefer to stay DTLA for dinner. Sorry, a little open ended, but any thoughts?
