Marcela Valladolid Guides to the Good Stuff

Eat, Drink and Be Merry.

When it comes to food and drink, San Diego has certainly grown up in the past decade, shedding its former reputation as a burger-fish taco-and-flip flops-only dining destination. Celebrated chefs, creative cocktails and craft beer characterize the culinary culture, along with a wealth of international cuisines and experiences ranging from toes-in-the-sand casual to world-class fine dining.

More than 80 craft breweries are spilling hoppy IPAs, roasty stouts and Belgian-style sippers from their taps across town, and East County is home to thriving vineyards producing robust reds, flirty roses and scintillating whites. Top-notch mixologists are shaking up classic cocktails and avant-garde elixirs everywhere from underground speakeasies and rooftop bars to stylish lounges, moody jazz clubs and pulsing electronic nightclubs.    

Welcome to San Diego. We hope you brought your appetite for fantastic food, lively libations and dynamic nightlife.
