North Park, San Diego
For the more adventurous foodies that don’t mind driving a bit out of the way, North Park is fast becoming the foodie/Brewpub destination of San Diego. There are literally too many great places to eat and drink to list here. The center of activity is around the intersection of University and 30th St, far from tourist areas and among the locals. We suggest you use the public parking structure just south of the intersection, because finding parking on the street can be difficult. The North Park Scene web site can help you wade through the long list of restaurants in the area.
Many other restaurants can be found in the San Diego Restaurant Guide.
