Enjoy Delectable Dishes from San Diego’s Finest Neighborhood Eateries at the 21st Annual Taste of Downtown | Thursday, September 26th

August 24, 2013 

Bring your appetite because the 21st Annual Taste of Downtown is back and better than ever! On Thursday, September 26 from 5 - 9PM, The Downtown San Diego Partnership and presenting sponsor Co-Merge are coming together to bring you a fabulous selection of over 50 of Downtown, San Diego’s most delicious eateries throughout the neighborhoods of the Gaslamp Quarter, Financial District, East Village and Horton Plaza.

Navigate your way to embark on your culinary journey with the assistance of Lyft! Upon your ticket purchase, all Taste of Downtown attendees will receive a $20 Lyft credit automatically. Cheaper than a cab, and offering the convenience of your own vehicle, just download the Lyft App and a car will arrive in minutes to escort you to the premier tasting event of the year!  Taste of Downtown tickets can be purchased for just $30 in advance and $35 the day of the event.

Once you arrive in one of the four Taste of Downtown featured neighborhoods, prepare to take a trip through a culinary wonderland of restaurants, bistros, takeouts and the newest hot spots San Diego has to offer.  The highly anticipated Taste of Downtown is the perfect opportunity to treat your taste buds to a fun, delectable night out. This self-guided tour will be both an adventure and a delight, offering complimentary shuttle service to and from each neighborhood to ensure you get a bite of all the restaurants in participation and maximize your Taste of Downtown experience!

Make sure to come hungry (seriously don't eat that day!) as the list of participating restaurants is continuously growing!  Treat yourself, indulge and enjoy the diverse culinary culture that the unique San Diego restaurants have to offer!
