Here it goes, they are doing this on the LA board (and also for Orange County) and I thought this might stimulate the board (which has been fairly quiet for SD talk).
How about an Ultimate San Diego Restaurants survey? Lifted directly from "Mr. Grub" on the LA board (thanks!), the concept is simple: everyone is asked to list, in rank order, your top 5 restaurants in San Diego County that you would recommend to houndly out-of-town visitors or to chowfriends for a special occasion. Your ranking should be based 75% on food and 25% on everything else.
To participate, reply with a list of ONLY your top 5 choices -- in RANK ORDER, 1 being best. Limit of 5. A simple list is fine, but any explanation is welcome.
The more replies received, the more useful are the polls findings, so please do reply. I'll post mine later.
