Eating Solo in San Diego

deludingmyself | Sep 5, 2006 04:47 AM

A recent transplant from the Atlanta chowhound scene, I've moved out here without my regular dining companion, until he starts a new job out here in a few months. I'm currently located pretty near UCSD, where I enjoy a staggering array of grocery store options, but haven't had much success with the restaurant scene so far.

I'm looking for places relatively nearby where I can either A) get good takeout, or B) eat solo in a casual atmosphere, without feeling too out of place. I certainly wouldn't flinch at sitting alone at a sushi bar, but I've never been comfortable being the patron who sits down at a table with a glass of wine and a book before ordering...

I don't mind driving a fair distance, but if it's takeout, I'd like to stay within a reasonable radius such that my food won't get cold before I get home! As for budget, I'm a grad student, so moderate to inexpensive suggestions are the most welcome.
