We are coming from Portland, Maine and will be staying at the Hotel Del for 9 nights in mid-August...2 adults who have broad tastes...and 2 kids with stubbornly limited palates (11 and 7) but who will behave appropriately at upscale restaurants. We do not plan on limiting our food choices based upon the boys' preferences...there will be something most anywhere that they will eat and we can always supplement afterwards.
I've started to try to figure out restaurants for while we are there and I'm hoping the board members have some guidance.
We will do at least a few nice dinners...including 1500 Ocean at the Del...but with a laid back vacation with kids the majority of the dinners will orient to more casual dining. Breakfast will be had on Coronado most mornings...lunch will depend upon our travels for the day.
We will have a car so can venture off-island for dinner...but on most nights would prefer walking distance due to kids and avoiding any worry over adult beverages with dinner. If there is must-eat in San Diego proper/GasLamp...we'll go there.
For lunches...or even dinner on the way back...we will be doing the touristy stuff and eating nearby...LegoLand, SeaWorld, Zoo, Wild Animal Park.
Any and all suggestions would be very much appreciated!
