“Sunny downtown San Diego is a vibrant, lively area of this laid back city that’s nestled along the picturesque waterfront. This dynamic neighborhood is characterized by its beautiful skyline, a blend of modern high-rises and historic architecture, and a diverse cultural scene. From the historic Gaslamp Quarter with its buzzing nightlife and dining options to the pristine Balboa Park and its museums and the stunning waterfront Embarcadero, Downtown San Diego offers a thriving combination of entertainment, art, and outdoor activities.

Here are three places to eat next time you find yourself exploring this area.

Westgate Room

For a brunch extravagant enough for royalty, start your day at the Westgate Room at the regal Westgate Hotel. With a dining room decorated with chandeliers, forest green banquettes, roman columns and mirrors, this restaurant offers an impressive selection of house specialties, egg dishes and more hearty entrees if you’re really hungry.

Popular items include the lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberry marmalade; the house brioche French toast with creme fraiche cinnamon butter and maple; the eggs Benedict with cotto prosciutto and hollandaise; the steak and eggs and the frittata with heirloom tomatoes, Humboldt fog goat cheese and artichoke.

The dinner menu is equally impressive. From appetizers that range from dim sum that includes cha su bao, pork shumai and potstickers to charcuterie and P.E.I mussels and fries, there’s something for everyone. The entrees offer a range of seafood, pasta meat entrees like Angus beef tenderloin with Yukon potato gratin; togarashi crusted Baja prawn with squid linguini and the Icelandic salmon with faro.”
