San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
The quality and variety of San Diego restaurants are among the city’s best-kept secrets. America’s Finest City may have an overall relaxed vibe, but food is taken quite seriously by San Diego visitors and locals. San Diego Restaurant Week is the best time to experience the city’s greatest eateries at prices that are friendly to all wallets. While dining out, guests may want to consider treating themselves further and booking a stay at one of the many great San Diego hotels.
La Jolla - Cafe Japengo:
Cafe Japengo is an upscale Asian restaurant located in the seaside community of La Jolla. The restaurant offers a three-course dinner menu priced at $40. Guests can enjoy a wide variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts, including soft-shell crab salad, BBQ-glazed tofu and chocolate lava cake. For guests looking to explore La Jolla longer, book a stay at one of San Diego’s top hotels, the posh La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club.
Downtown - Athens Market Taverna:
Athens Market Taverna is located right behind downtown San Diego’s top shopping destination, Horton Plaza. The restaurant has been the city’s premier Greek eatery since it opened in 1974. Athens Market Taverna’s restaurant week menu is priced at $20 and offers two delicious dishes and a dessert. Stuffing one's self full of souvlaki and baklava can get tiring, so consider staying at the trendy and pet-friendly W Hotel San Diego located nearby.
Mission Bay - Baleen:
Those who want to eat right on the water during San Diego Restaurant Week should check out Baleen. Baleen is located inside the Mission Bay resort Paradise Point, but luckily patrons don’t need to be a guest to eat there. Its San Diego Restaurant Week menu comes in at $30 and features delicious offerings such as pork tenderloin and blueberry upside down cake. Some of San Diego’s top hotels are nearby, including Paradise Point (obviously) and the Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa.
Downtown - Croce’s:
Croce’s is a combination restaurant and jazz bar that is dedicated to preserving the memory of singer/songwriter Jim Croce. Owned and operated by Ingrid Croce, the San Diego Restaurant Week menu at Croce’s is truly expansive. After browsing the $40 menu and dining on some delicious cuisine, guests can open their ears and take in some live jazz music. Those who want to explore downtown some more will want to book a stay at the hip and happening Hotel Indigo located only a few blocks away.
