Hollywood Casino opened in October 2016 and, as the new kid […]

Paris is known as the “City of Lights.” To romantics, it is the “city of love.” To foodies, it is the “city of great cuisine.” It is, after all, the city that originated cordon bleu. Even the smallest bistro on the left bank of the city seems to embed extra flavor in even its simplest […]

Island Prime – At The Point

Starbucks is practically ubiquitous. It seems that wherever I travel, there’s bound to be a location nearby. Well, David Cohn doesn’t have quite the same reach but here in San Diego, a David Cohn restaurant is seemingly within a short drive. At my last count, nineteen of his 21 operations are within San Diego County. […]

There are delis in many parts of San Diego—Italian delis, German delis and just plain old sandwich shops that put “deli” into their names or ads. But, to me, “deli” can refer only to Jewish delis, the kinds where salami is drying in the window, where pickles are brought immediately to the table and where, […]

Citizens of San Diego have a very special relationship with Old Town. It is where the city was founded. In 1769, Father Junipero Serra established the first of 21 missions that he established up and down the state. Fifty years later, a small village developed that grew into a town.

A Restaurant To Impress Family or Friends

Residents of San Diego are very fortunate to live there. So often when I speak with people in other cities, particularly those who live in cold climates where the icy hand of winter comes sweeping over the mountains, I hear real envy in their voices. We do enjoy the best weather of the country. But […]

Thirty Five and Going Strong My grandson’s favorite expression is, “if you snooze, you lose!” I thought of that as I watched the winter San Diego Restaurant Week draw to a close.
