AYCE, Brazilian

Fogo de Chao ( New Gaucho Lunch $15 AYCE Market Market Table & Feijoada Bar)

I’ve visited Fogo de Chao way more times than I’d like to remember. I was there with family just last Mother’s Day for lunch. Service was great but I think I just over-meated out. The salad bar didn’t seem as phenomenal and the plethora of people at the salad bar made it difficult to enjoy.… Read More Fogo de Chao ( New Gaucho Lunch $15 AYCE Market Market Table & Feijoada Bar)

American, STEAKHOUSE

Greystone Steakhouse – San Diego, CA

I had my Pretty Woman (the movie) moment the other night at the Gaslamp. I guess that could totally be taken the wrong way. I mean Pretty Woman in the sense that you’re told it’s a surprise dinner with a surprise event afterwards. I knew the restaurant was somewhere downtown but that was about it.… Read More Greystone Steakhouse – San Diego, CA

Brazilian

Fogo de Chao – San Diego, CA

It was CDJ’s birthday recently and he requested dinner with a small group of friends. It’s no surprise that I tend to be militant when it comes to planning things and that militancy was tested when I gave up that control to one of his friends few years ago. Case in point, CDJ loves steaks,… Read More Fogo de Chao – San Diego, CA

Brazilian

Rei do Gado ( AYCE Brazilian Steakhouse $20 Lunch) – San Diego, CA

Rei do Gado I always go a little bananas when I know I have an AYCE adventure coming up. I over plan. I over research. I overrrr DO. Case in point…Rei do Gado for San Diego Restaurant Week. RDG extended their RW for another week 1/26-1/30/2014. Unlike Fogo de Chao, Rei offers lunch on Sunday and… Read More Rei do Gado ( AYCE Brazilian Steakhouse $20 Lunch) – San Diego, CA

BBQ, Brazilian

Fogo de Chao ( Yelp event + Saturday ramblings) – San Diego (Gaslamp), CA

Sin of gluttony. Those words gave me shivers every time I heard them in church growing up. Well…I inadvertently sinned last Saturday at Fogo de Chao… And it was sooooo good (the FOOD, not the actually sinning…right?). Yelp recently partnered with the newly open Fogo de Chao of San Diego to host a luncheon for… Read More Fogo de Chao ( Yelp event + Saturday ramblings) – San Diego (Gaslamp), CA

TASTING EVENTS

Taste of Downtown San Diego 2013 – San Diego, CA

I’ve been wanting to try the Taste of Downtown San Diego for years now. BUT, I was too cheap to pay for the $30 ticket fee AND the thought of walking all around Gaslamp and downtown really *really* didn’t appeal to me. I wished that I was rich enough to pay one of those scooter… Read More Taste of Downtown San Diego 2013 – San Diego, CA
