Georges at the Cove, La Jolla

Best dining so far in San Diego area. The food was so good that I wish I could start all over again. I had Mahi Mahi with shiitake mushrooms, artichokes, grapes cut in slices, and the absolute best gnocchi I have ever tasted. It was absolutely totally completely delicioso. Nancy (the other contractor on an expense account) had boneless ribs over sweet potatoes with a special thick tomato/barbecue sauce on top and a sweet Cabernet sauce under the whole thing. I know I’m missing ingredients in both our dishes but you probably get the general idea. We sat outside overlooking the ocean with a heat lamp to keep us warm.

The waiter was one of the highlights of the meal. His name is Eric and he is a school teacher in his regular life…lucky kids to have this guy as your teacher. He is a total charmer and did not steer us wrong on a single dish. I would give him a 10 out of 10 points. The food gets a 10 out of 10 and the atmosphere gets a 10 out of 10. The lighting was a bit dim to read the menu but I have a flashlight app on my new iPhone so that wasn’t a problemo for me. Apple should hire me for an iPhone commercial: I can’t quit talking about mine.

I am going to start rating bathrooms too since I always seem to have a need to check them out. Nancy doesn’t have this interest (need) so she won’t be joining me in this rating. I might think this is because she’s younger than I except that this has always been an interest (need) of mine. So…the bathroom only gets a 6. Clean, but not happenin’; good mirrors, bright lights (worth an extra point) but no real zip and since it is two floors down in the more expensive sister restaurant I was expecting something special. However, the meal and service were so fabo I’m not deducting any points from my overall rating for this. The entire evening gets a 10!

By the way I have to mention that the Peter Lik art gallery is right across the street. Spectacular photography and that is his real name…I asked. More later on him.
