El Pescador

I don’t think that we are alone on this – whenever we have out of town guests visiting, we basically have a go-to list of things to do and places to eat; pretty much the “don’t miss” spots in San Diego.  And as far as food goes, we always make sure to make time for […]

Bencotto

Ah, Bencotto (sigh).  I write this review with a bit of a heavy heart.  Bencotto was truly one of our favorite restaurants in San Diego for most of while we have lived here.  For years you could find us sharing an outdoor table overlooking the bay on a late Saturday afternoon, enjoying a glass of […]

Amaya

It had been a few years since we had last dined at Amaya at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, but the memories we had of our last experience left us feeling very excited for a return visit.  We had visions of a lush hotel oozing with warm marble tones and sparkly chandeliers at every turn; […]

I decided to try out my new Zara pants (mentioned here), and did manage to snap a photo right […]

Admirals Hour

If you’re looking for some delightfully fresh seafood, then pop over to Oceanaire for their Admirals Hour.  The service is always fabulous, and the food even better. After snagging prime seating in front of the seafood display, we dug into the menu. We settled on our drinks while debating what to start nibbling on. Feeling […]

Cheese Please

Cheese?  Why yes, please!  For me, not many things get better than a great piece of cheese.  So when I heard that a new cheese shop was opening in San Diego, I was thrilled!  The Cheese Store has a super cute location in Little Italy on Kettner; it is really beautiful new real estate in […]
