Hello and welcome to San Diego. My name is Laura Marie. My husband Dennis and I have spent the past 35 years enjoying San Diego and every wonderful thing this amazing city has to offer.
In that time we've pretty much explored every restaurant, bar, basically every eatery from North County down to the San Diego border. And in that time I've earned my nickname as San Diego's Dining Diva.
I never set out to gain any notoriety but I always appreciate great atmosphere. Whether it be in a hidden local gem or one of the well known coastal hot spots, we're equal opportunity atmosphere enthusiasts.
Now, that's not to say that all restaurants are created equally. Definitely not. We've visited more than a few eateries that we'll never return to. And that got me thinking.
With all the visitors we have come to San Diego, not only for the wonderful weather and the beaches, but to check out all the other "extras" America's Finest City has to offer. And with time being critical to having a wonderful vacation, we thought why not help to eliminate the not so good from the cream of the crop.
Next thing we knew, San Diego's Dining Diva was born. We're here to impart our 30+ year knowledge to all those that desire to make the most of the time they have available in our wonderful city.
Please feel free to peruse all the pages of our site. We're certain you'll find something that appeals to everyone. From Pizza and a Craft brew, Burgers and Burritos, to the finest in Surf 'n Turf, we'll let you know where to find it. Bon Appetit.
