Gotta love Restaurant Week

Next week is Restuarant Week in San Diego. For those of you that don't know what that is, it's a week where a bunch of restaurants offer prix-frixe dinners for $30 or $40, depending on the resturant. This is great since dinner at many of these places would normally be well over $50 a person. I know I said in one of my previous posts that I've been trying to save money, but this is one thing I just HAVE to splurge on. I can't help it. I love eating. I really really do. I'm always looking forward to my next meal. The boy gives me a hard time about it a lot, in a joking and loving way of course. This year I'm trying two places, Market Restaurante and Bar and Azul. I really really really wanted to go to 1500 Ocean at Hotel del, but they are already completely booked on the nights I wanted to go. Oh well, there's always next time.

There are so many restaurants in San Diego that I've been dying to try. I enjoy cooking at home, so I rarely go out to eat. When I do go out, we always go to some nearby places(read chain restaurants). If we do venture outside of our comfort zone, we tend to hit up the same places, such as Rama or Casa Guadalajara. What can I say, I'm a creature of habit. Here's a partial list of places I want to try soon:

Jayne's Gastropub
Burger Lounge
Mama Testa's

Any suggestions on what I should add to my list?

Restaurant week is my favorite week in San Diego and I've been going since the first one - back where every restaurant had a $30 menu. (Seriously - I think Laurel served caviar!) I used to go to 3 restaurants, but since I moved I'm only going to one this year - Prado. If you really want to try 1500 Ocean (which I adore) make your reservations WAY in advance. Last year we made ours for the Marine Room at the end of November! I'm super excited they're doing another week in June too!
