Fort Oak

1011 Fort Stockton Dr, San Diego, CA 92103
(619) 722-3398

From cocktails to dinner, to dessert, Fort Oak has everything a person could want in an eating establishment. Fort Oak provides many options, including seafood, steak, lamb, duck, and pork. Fort Oak also has an array of desserts and wines that will compliment any meal being served. If you like high-end restaurants and would like to take someone out to show them how you feel about them, this is the restaurant to go to. I would personally go for the Meyer’s New York Strip, but everyone is different. For reservations to Fort Oak, please visit this link here.

With hundreds of items to choose from and thousands of possible combinations to make, Farmer’s Bottega takes the cake when it comes to brunch and dinner service. Farmer’s Bottega looks to take farm-fresh produce and serve it right to their customers. They also provide vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options so they can serve everyone who wishes to visit! If the thought of a nice scrumptious brunch, with french toast and an omelet, makes you water at the mouth, you should check out Farmer’s Bottega.

Cardellino

4033 Goldfinch St, San Diego, CA 92103
(619) 600-5311

Embrace yourself in a true Italian experience by trying out Cardellino. They provide every Italian’s dream foods, including an array of pasta, antipasti, pizza, seafood, and mouth-watering desserts. Cardellino would not be a true Italian restaurant if they did not have their fair share of wines now, would they? Luckily, they have over 50 different wines to try from. They even allow you to take bottles home with you! I wish I had a restaurant like Cardellino close to me. If this sounds like a restaurant you’d like to try, check out their reservations here.

Izakaya Masa

928 Fort Stockton Dr, San Diego, CA 92103
(619) 542-1354

Whether you like seafood, chicken, bacon, sushi, or deep-fried food, Izakaya Masa will make sure your authentic Japanese food experience is divine. Even If you are a picky eater and only eat ramen, they have that too, and in several different styles! For those 21 and up, they have 10 different styles of sake (rice wine) to try. As a fan of sake, I would personally recommend the nigori, but you will have to see for yourself. If this sounds like your type of night, call their number for a reservation!

The Red Door

741 W Washington St, San Diego, CA 92103
(619) 295-6000

Another hot Italian cuisine restaurant, The Red Door has everything and more that you would want out of an Italian restaurant. Eggplant Parmesan, Spaghetti & Meatballs, Fried Calamari, Gnocchi, and 48 wines to drink (but not all at once)! The Red Door also provides vegan and gluten-friendly options. They also have a wide variety of desserts to eat, from cheesecake to toffee pudding, banana cream pie to tiramisu, and many others. Check The Red Door out and make a reservation here!

Jo’s Diner

807 W Washington St, San Diego, CA 92103
(619) 323-2035

One of my favorite attributes of a restaurant is that they serve breakfast all day. If you are like me, then you are going to love Jo’s Diner. Not only do they have breakfast all day, which includes omelets, french toast, and Eggs Benedict, but they have over 30 different entrees, burgers, and sandwiches to dig your face into. If the thought of a juicy burger with caramelized onions, bacon, and cheddar cheese doesn’t make you salivate, then I don’t know what does. Jo’s Diner also has their take of beer and wine to select from.

Lucha Libre Taco Shop

1810 W Washington St, San Diego, CA 92103
(619) 296-8226

Last, but certainly not least, is the Lucha Libre Taco Shop. One of San Diego’s most notorious taco shops, you can choose between tacos and burritos at a very affordable price. Lucha Libre also offers catering for those who would like to host a party that entails premiere tacos and burritos. Lucha Libre has their choice of fish, cheese, steak, chicken, and beef tacos to eat. They also have BYO bowls and salads for those who would prefer that. And if all else fails, they have hotdogs maxed out with your choice of bacon, fresh fries, Jack cheese, and pico de gallo.
