Will be in town for a few days, starting Sat. night. Staying right near the Gaslamp District.
I'm big into local/sustainable fare, so thinking about The Linkery on Sunday night. Flight doesn't get in 'til after 8:00 on Sat. night, though, so looking for Gaslamp for that night.
Are there some non-tourist laden, must-eat places in Gaslamp, restaurants that are quintessential San Diego? Not looking for anything too fancy. I'll probably be dining alone, so restaurants where I can sit in the bar area and still get some top-notch cuisine would be ideal, as would hopefully seafood and/or (authentic) Mexican.
Any other recommendations within 15-minute cab ride of Gaslamp would also be great.
