Hi all,
I will be spending a week in San Diego in March. I probably will not be getting out of the city much, but may take a trip to La Jola. Just wondering if someone can make some restaurant suggestions for SD.

Thanks,
DougE

Not sure which part of SD you will be in, but you should be able to find stuff on these lists around town.

Thank-you Skylark. These lists will be a definite help. I will be staying at the Manchester Grand Hyatt which as I understand is quite close to the Gaslamp district. Sometimes I travel with a definite list of restaurants that I will stick to and sometimes I just go and hope I can find a place that is knowledgeable about food sensitivies. CAn you comment on the general sense of awareness of Celiac Disease in the restaurants?

It's widely variable. I have had reasonable luck with better restaurants where the chef has culinary school training. It can be really hard when you get into places where half the staff is Mexican and English is their second language. The good news is that there are many restaurants in the Gaslamp so you can move on easily if you get a "gluten, what's that?" answer.

I generally stick to places with a well-defined gluten-free menu because I can get so darned sick if something goes wrong. My backup is generally sushi. You can't walk two blocks without tripping over a sushi joint in San Diego.

You could also check www.(Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned).com, they should have a few reviews for restaurants in San Diego
