Uniquely San Diego -- suggestions needed

Joe | Jul 5, 2005 10:29 PM

Going to spend a few days in San Diego/La Jolla next week. I scanned the board but couldn't quite find what I wanted.

I can get good French/Italian/etc. back home in NYC -- I'm looking for a couple meals that I would be hard-pressed to duplicate on the East Coast, something unique to the San Diego area (some regional cuisine, a unique fusion experience, indigenous ingredients, who knows what). Food is very important, but some non-touristy ambiance would be appreciated. We'll be staying downtown and later in La Jolla, but we do have a car and don't mind exploring. Nor is mixing high cuisine or down-home eating a problem. Finally, price is not a limiting factor.

Also, to satisfy my sweet tooth, looking for a good bakery or dessert-oriented cafe (a la Citizen Cake in SF or Cafe Sabarsky in NYC).

Any assistance would be appreciated. I have always found fellow 'hounds to be most helpful and have pointed me to great meals on three continents.
