I've read many of the posts on San Diego/La Jolla and have lots of information... maybe TOO much. I could use some opinions :)
We like what seems to fall into American and Continental cuisine types, seafood/chicken/steak/etc. No French, no Italian (love it, can't handle the wheat in the pasta), no Asian (other than sushi), no Mexican. Well, ok, we love Mexican and might be willing to include one "must eat" - there's just no shortage of Mexican places in our town so we want something different. Sushi ok as long as it also has tempura or other cooked options (he loves sushi, I don't, but I do love tempura).
We are staying at the Hyatt in La Jolla.
Pricing: Inexpensive/moderate on most meals, planning one fancy/expensive dinner and the brunch is wide open.
We will be driving down after work, about a 3.5 hour drive, putting us in town around 8:30. We might just do room service, but, I'd love a suggestion or two for a quick bite at that hour near the hotel if you have ideas.
We'll probably do room service for first breakfast (yes we eat like hobbits!) and then I'll be driving hubby to his meeting over on Silverton (off Miramar). I'll be shopping the rest of the day either in La Jolla village or UTC - or both! I'm thinking of starting in La Jolla and having second breakfast at Mission Coffee Cup Cake.
Any other ideas?
Friday lunch: Ideas for lunch or snacks/treats to keep me going while shopping in the village or at UTC?
Friday dinner: This is our Valentine's dinner. Romantic, view would be nice but not required. Considering Arterra, Peohe's, Azul La Jolla, George's, The Marine Room, Coronado Boathouse 1187.
Saturday breakfast: We will be heading to Sea World.
Breakfast ideas between La Jolla & Sea World?
Saturday lunch: I hate to even ask... LOL But, seeing as how we'll need to eat at least one meal there, any suggestions as to the restaurants IN Sea World?
Saturday dinner: We will probably want something easy and not fancy, and reasonably close to being on the way from Sea World back to the Hyatt in La Jolla.
Sunday brunch: Having trouble deciding! I've been to the brunchmaster's web site and his reviews make me wish I lived in the area! If you had to pick only one BUFFET brunch, where would it be and why?
We are considering going to the Fleet Museum (1875 El Prado, San Diego, CA) on Sunday, but that may or may not play a factor in where we eat.
Sunday lunch: Thinking Brian's. Anyone know the hours of the Sunday farmer's market?
