    The first San Diego location for Tender Greens - affordable, fresh salads, soups, sandwiches and specials. This is also where P. Balistreri salumi got its start. [Eater 38 Member]

    If you can't decide between grilled veggies and mashed potatoes, get the veggies as a side! You can't go wrong. (now if you can just figure out a way to eat it all!)
    Delicious desserts and salads. Recently enjoyed their Blood Orange Olive Oil Cake. Try making a version of this cake at home! Get the recipe on So yum.

    The leafy salads and grilled meat plates aren't complete without a side order of mashed Yukon golds boasting lots of butter and cream -- the best in town.

    You have to try the Tuna Nicoise salad. It's seared rare and it's quite the delicious salad. It has kalamata olives, capers, potatoes and quail eggs. Read more

    Here's the play: Mahi mahi hot plate + kale salad + chicken soup. Don't be fooled into exchanging your salad for your soup, you want both.

    Red velvet cake is very moist and tasty with a delicious cream cheese frosting that isn't too overpowering.

    They serve you by placing your food on a tray at the register. Often while another customer is trying to pay. You end up with your fellow patrons hovering over your food passing money to the cashier.
