The Essential Spots to Dine in San Diego, Winter 2022 Edition

By

With miles and miles of ocean coastline, it’d be easy to see San Diego as just another pretty surf town. But wander away from the waves a bit and you’ll find an urban area with plenty of non-aquatic activities to hold your interest — including top-notch drinking and dining.

Far from living in L.A.’s shadow when it comes to food, America’s Finest City has a lively culinary life of its own, one that boasts celebrity chefs and Michelin-starred restaurants alongside taco stands and sushi spots galore. And because this is laid-back San Diego, usually you can come as you are, flip-flops, board shorts, and all.
