I am in San Diego one night and will be staying at the Marriott on Harbor near Market St.
Since I have one night, expense is not a big issue. I am looking for a smaller place with excellent food, preferably French, Italian, Continental or upscale American, but also with a bustling crowd of elegant, well dressed people. Basically, a nice crowd, great food, elegant atmosphere but not stuffy and quiet where you have to whisper to your dinner partner. Any ideas?? Many thanks for your help. I know there are hundreds of places in San Diego, so I hope my restrictions were enough.
