From Our Editors

When Liz and Jerry Bishop were dating in the 1960s, they discovered they both adored Greek food and spent hours dining in Greek restaurants. Luckily, they were living in Chicago at the time, and the cuisine?s presence in Greektown and beyond kept the couple well fed. But when they moved to San Diego in 1978, the food wasn?t as prevalent, so they decided to open their own restaurant where they could serve the meals of their beloved culinary style.

With its terra cotta roof and tables perched seaside, Greek Islands Cafe looks like it was plucked from a Mediterranean village. The building wasn?t actually brought from Greece, but the recipes were?the chef, Peggy, builds dishes using traditional recipes from relatives living in the foothills of Mount Olympus. Beyond the recipes, the Bishops have developed some traditions of their own. Those who order the cafe?s saganaki, athenian chicken, and souvlaki might have the food served by the couple?s children, Chris and Melissa, or fellow patrons who just felt like stretching their legs.

San Diego Restaurant Guide

San Diego restaurants can be found packed together in the touristy downtown area, but the restaurant scene has notable dining establishments all over the city. Mexican flavors are everywhere, and there's scarcely a restaurant within range that won't have a burrito, tortilla or taco on the menu. But in keeping with the diversity of the city itself, Italian and Asian restaurants are also popular in San Diego.

It's impossible to divorce the influence of Mexican food when eating in San Diego, and iconic amongst the ubiquitous options is the fish taco. Famously served at fish shacks and classy seafood restaurants alike, it is almost traditional cuisine for surfers, beachgoers and fishermen. Try George's at the Cove in La Jolla for a more modern fusion take on the traditional taco or Fidel's in Solana Beach for a more classic fish taco with a history stretching back to 1960.

San Diego food is also enriched by affordable Italian restaurants in the now gentrified Little Italy neighborhood. Buon Appetito should sit somewhere near the top of the list of restaurants to try for its varied menu and fresh flavors. This place does not take reservations over the weekend, but will call to notify of available tables.

For fine dining in San Diego, the trendy Gaslamp Quarter must be mentioned. This is a sure bet for finding quality ethnic cuisine from around the world. The intimate Escape Fish Bar is worth checking out for Asian-influenced seafood, but the quarter also hosts an annual culinary walking tour every June, during which visitors can test the best from participating restaurants in the area.

San Diego restaurants offer diners and casual lunch grabbers an array of options, from the humble fish taco to upmarket Asian cuisine. No matter the budget, there's a culinary delight to be found for every occasion.
