Restaurants & Bars 11

San Diego for a month

Hello Chowhounds,

I am in town from the East Coast for six weeks (a month to go) on a project, but here's the catch: it's mostly work -- from early in the morning to fairly late at night -- and after being here for two and a half weeks, I haven't eaten out one time. Yikes! I'm usually a total foodie, and scoping out the good restaurants is typically my first order of business.

So here's how you could help. I would love to have a handful of restaurants to try on the odd weeknight when I might have the energy to go out after work. They don't have to be the absolute best in town, but what would be great would be worthwhile restaurants with a good/friendly bar area where I would feel comfortable eating alone (I'm a 40yo woman). I tend toward upscale (but not overly trendy or too much of a scene) or really good neighborhood places. I am working in the UTC area (near the Hyatt) and I am living roughly between Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe. Realistically, I don't see myself being too adventurous during the week, so suggestions convenient to those neighborhoods would be great.

I am hoping to have a little bit more time to explore during the weekends. Would love to explore Hillcrest, La Jolla and perhaps some of the seaside? Suggestions? Again, I will mostly be alone and although I am okay with that, I would like places where I don't feel too out of place if you know what I mean.

Thanks for your suggestions. I feel like I am going to kick myself when this is all over and I've barely experienced the town at all. Hopefully it's not too late to salvage this!
