Hello SD Chowhounders. Midwest CHer here.
Staying at Hilton Bayfront.
Wife at conference 11/6-11/9 No car, will rely on taxi or public tran.
Trying to avoid the Gaslamp area for all if not most of the stay(Are the restaurants really that bad there ?)
For Fri/Sat lunch I'll be on my own and looking for a good beer bar(30-50 or more beers) Also want fish tacos and one post I saw mentioned lobster tacos...sorry about the drool.
For the rest of the stay 11/10-11/14(will have car) we will need a couple breakfast places for varieties sake.
Not really worried about lunch unless there's a place you think we must try.
For dinner I'll need 2-3 all the way $$$$$ upscale, 4-5 $$-$$$ places and 2-3 Triple D type places.
Wife hates bars. A wine bar with good food is ok.
Wife not fond of seafood so restaurants should have a good variety of choices.
Would like some good Cali cuisine recs, French, Mexican, maybe one Italian.Skip the Asian and steak places(plenty where I live)
Will also need a couple of recs up the coast as far as Del Mar. A great view would be fantastic.
I hope this is specific without being overbearing....
