San Diego Restaurants

For someone who loves food as much as I do, San Diego satisfies pretty much every craving I could ever have. Though the city certainly has its fair share of delicious Mexican and Thai, there's so much more to explore here! We have Top Chef and Master Chef restaurateurs, an entire street dedicated to Italian food, and we obsess over our brunches as much as the next city... maybe more.

So whether you're vacationing here and want to plan your food tour through San Diego or you live here and need a new recommendation for a night out, here are a few to get you started, along with notes next to some of my favorites. Bon App├ętit!

Disclaimers: I don't eat seafood, but I will sometimes make Ryan eat it and tell me about it for a review. And though most of the restaurants below have provided me free meals in exchange for a review, all opinions are my own. 

That being said, if you'd like to have your restaurant featured here, email to schedule a tasting!
