I'm headed to San Diego tomorrow to visit a small company that does some work for my company. I don't know San Diego well. Would love to suggest a fun/interesting/different restaurant/bar to get together after work on Tuesday night. Maybe something that they haven't tried yet? For me, it's got to have good cocktails and good food...not bar snacks.
Midrange in price. Not looking for white tablecloth. Something more laid back, but serious about food and drink.
I'm from Dallas. If it were me suggesting for Dallas, I'd pick a place like The Cedars Social or Proof + Pantry or Harlowe MXM....
