My wife and I will be staying in San Diego, a block from the Manchester Grand Hyatt, for a week in July and a week in August. We like upscale casual food, favor Italian food and seafood, and like places with music or "something" that makes for an experience. Sports bars also work, and outdoor patios are a plus. We will have a car (and will drive for something worthwhile), but do want to take advantage of walking opportunities when we can. We want to avoid touristy places in the Gaslamp Quarter. Suggestions?
