I love love love to eat good food, and San Diego Restaurant Week makes good (pricier) food a whole lot more affordable.
*For the record I thoroughly enjoy a cheap, hole in the wall Mexican restaurant just as much as I enjoy a fancier restaurant, but hey it's fun to switch things up here and there. Did I mention that I love restaurant week? ;)
But I digress, Last weekend Nadav and I were lucky enough to enjoy the most delicious restaurant week meal with two great friends at Bertrand at Mister A's in Banker's Hill. The food was excellent and, the wine pairings just added to the fun. Mister A's is located on the top floor of a high rise building and overlooks Downtown San Diego and the harbor. The views are incredible, I definitely recommend reserving a table outside right around sunset.
For the first course: scallops and wild Alaskan tuna tartare. Soooooo good
I ordered the braised lamb osso busco and it was delicious. To be honest I'm not a huge red meat fan, but the waiter recommended it and I went for it. I didn't regret it ;)
Ehh.. sorry for the lack of better food photos. In all of my foodie excitement I managed to leave my fancy camera in the car, and it was too dark to get better foods with my point and shoot camera when it was time to eat our entrees and dessert. I promise though, the food was delish.
Good news: restaurant week was extended until October 3. You can still go enjoy a 3 course meal at Bertrand and Mister A's for $45. Dooooo it!
