San Diego is a foodie favorite — with amazing craft beer and fine local wines, too

San Diego's secret is out: This beautiful beach town is also a dining paradise, and when it comes to news on the latest local restaurants and culinary honors, foodies worldwide are eating it up. As just a sampler plate of accolades: Tripadvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards has named San Diego the No. 10 food destination in the United States, while Food & Wine Magazine likewise picked San Diego among the nation's Top 10 cities for dining. And Thrillist Travel has called San Diego one of the Best New Foodie Cities in America.

Prestigious global awards have followed suit: San Diego now boasts five restaurants that have been awarded Michelin stars, the most coveted dining honor worldwide. And numerous other local restaurants also have achieved Michelin’s Bib Gourmand distinction for great food at a good value.

But beyond the accolades, San Diego simply offers an amazing range of great dining and places to enjoy it — from fabled neighborhood taco favorites to great food with a waterfront view to creative outdoor and beachside cuisine to hot new dining finds. And to top it off, San Diego is one of the top craft-brew destinations in the nation, and boasts a thriving local wine region.

Explore the links below to discover what to eat and drink — and where to do it — after a day of lounging by the sea or enjoying a fun-packed afternoon exploring everything San Diego has to offer.
