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.

Dinner at Bertrand at Mister A’s

Fabo view of San Diego with planes flying right through downtown. Lobster pot pie was delicious. Nancy loved the truffle mac ‘n cheese…not my fave. I think truffles smell and taste like an animal not a plant and maybe like an animal getting ready to do something personal with another animal. Definitely recommend the restaurant though. Nancy gives it a 10 out of 10. I’d give it a 9. Here’s the view.
