Restaurant Review

Golden Triangle restaurant drifts aimlessly

Just another hotel restaurant

My wife is vegetarian, so I’ve been seeking out restaurants with tasty meatless options. Her birthday was last week, and I was hoping to kick things up a notch by taking her to a place ...

Buzzy eatery embraces flaky concept

The proof is in the pie crust

Here in San Diego, we love us some high-concept casual dining. I don't know of a local restaurant this year that's captured more social media attention as the Pop Pie Co. And no, a pie ...

Supper clubbin' in South Park

Beautiful food stokes conversation among strangers

When I wasn't looking, pop-up restaurants gave way to supper clubs, which might also be considered pop-ups, but they more closely resemble dinner parties than temporary businesses. The gist is, a chef whips up a ...
