Comprehensive List Of San Diego Restaurants Open For Dine-In, Take-Out & Delivery



Since the initial publishing of this list on March 17, the post has been a work in progress, updated almost hourly, aimed at informing the San Diego community at-large where they can go for food and other necessities during a tumultuous and historic time. Being that San Diego restaurants have now been allowed to reopen for dine-in, so long as strict social distancing and safety protocols are implemented, we have adapted once again to include restaurants open for dine-in, as well as those continuing to solely offer take-out and delivery options.

Stream of consciousness this morning:

It strikes me now that in 'normal' times, every black American risks their life every time they leave their homes. They risk being attacked, arrested, killed, lynched, for the crime of being black while driving, while jogging, while watching birds. Hell, lives are at risk even at home, ask Botham Jean.

Those were 'normal' times.

Where Do We Go From Here?

June 1, 2020

What am I supposed to write about today? This site started when my partner and I first moved to San Diego as a means of self-motivation to explore the local food scene. It evolved into hospitality news and event promotion. Now, what do we talk about? We have reached a period in our collective history when it seems completely obtuse to write about anything other than the systemic injustices that have led to our nation's divide and the tumultuous situation we are now in. How do we make sense of it and where do we go from here?

La Mesa Leaders Were Wholly Complicit In Their City's Chaos

May 31, 2020

A week of protests and rioting following George Floyd's well-publicized murder in Minneapolis, MN, culminated in a fiery Saturday "Hell Night" around the United States. Leaders in San Diego's La Mesa were in a better position than most precincts to demonstrate apologetic sympathy, following an evidently wrongful arrest of a young man that went viral earlier in the week, yet they chose to do the opposite, escalating violence by firing tear gas and rubber bullets into crowds of protestors. Shame on La Mesa City & their police department. You are complicit in the damage that occurred in your community.
