Alexander's in North Park, San Diego

Just got back from eating at Alexander's. It's right across the street from the Linkery and has been open a couple weeks.

I'm no expert, but this was the general consensus at the table.

The mussels were very good. The sauce they were in was even better! We ended up sopping it up with the generous hunks of garlic bread they give you. A friend described the mussels as almost thai, what with the generous basil and sourish flavor, but it had rich, buttery finish.

We got the stuffed mushrooms as well. They were pretty good, but to me rather ordinary. Mushrooms covered in cheese and stuffed with crab and, i believe, lobster.

I didn't have the bruschetta, but the girl who did said it was really tasty.

The walnut gorganzola pasta was ok. A little under salted to me and it didn't have that pow to the gut that tells you you're eating something divine. Not very gorganzola-y either.

The pizza was delicious. Someone at the table should eat the pizza when you go so you can snag a bite. They ordered the tomato basil. I had a bite and it was a damn good pizza.

The vodka bolognese was tasty. Round and meaty flavor. I just had a bite, but I liked it.

I also tried a bite of the seafood linguine. I forget the name. The person who ordered it said it was too peppery. But I could see what she meant, but I liked the spicy, seafood dish.

The house salad was good, with a nice pineapple vinaigeitte.

And the red sangria was definitely better than the white. The white was a little bitter, whereas the red had a cinnamon-y flavor. Everyone ended up ordering at least a glass of the red sangria.

That's about it. Another at the table had the baked spaghetti and enjoyed it.

It's definitely worth a visit.
