I'll be in San Diego (at the Sheraton Marina) for a conference in a month or so. Two years ago at the same conference a group of us went to Chive for dinner. It was a great time, and we thought we'd try something different this year, but with a similar urban, hip vibe, and good food and wine list.
It doesn't have to be in the Gaslamp district, but a short cab ride would be preferable to a long one. Is Market in Del Mar too far to consider?
Any suggestions are most welcome!
