Best dish in San Diego?

mcgrath | May 6, 2009 10:41 AM

About a month ago I had dinner at Crescent Heights on Broadway in downtown San Diego. I enjoy everything from fine dining to street tacos and everything in between. For me, one litmus test of the quality of a particular preparation or dish, is how long I remember its particulars: when and where I enjoyed it, the ingredients, the preparation.

The best dish I've had in San diego in recent memory is the Crescent Heights Salad, a deicious concoction of fingerling potatoes, frisee, a poached egg and a complementary vinaigrette. I'll go back soon just for that dish. Granted I've always liked this type of salad; my first was at Brasserie Royale in the Gaslamp ten years ago (now Lou and Mickey's), when it was a French restaurant. There it was called Salade Lyonnaise. But the C.H. version is better.

Curious as to others' single dish fav's from S.D.?
