There are many new and exciting restaurants in San Diego but visiting restaurants with longevity brings back memories and comfort foods.
It was time to check out the renovated Hob Nob Hill Restaurant located on 1st Ave, Bankers Hill.
Quite a change from its beginning 75 years ago but still serving comfy and satisfying food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner like chicken and dumplings, which Guy Fieri highlighted on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Right away fresh bread was served, hot coffee poured and the tough decision what to order began!
There are many varieties of eggs benedict, sandwiches, turkey dinner and a Waldorf salad.
I ordered chicken and dumplings and my friend the cobb salad. Both were generously sized and delicious. Returning here is on my calendar.
“Old School” dining is a common saying, but The Godfather Restaurant truly fits this term. The restaurant is tucked in the corner of a small business center on Clairemont Mesa Blvd. Open the doors and be met by the Balistreri family cooking, serving and ensuring your dining experience is the best. Maria is the motherly hostess and her husband Isidoro cooks over hot stoves. The food and service is consistently “old school” Italian. We always have a superb meal which keep us coming back.
Old Venice Restaurant on Canon St, Pt Loma has been serving Italian food for over 40 years. What I didn’t know is besides the cozy indoor seating area, there are 3 lovely patios outside. Happy hour and dinner offers are a variety of American style food and drinks. Inside or outside is the place to unwind and try a sampling of many delicious choices. The community restaurant is located in an older established part of San Diego and neighbors met neighbors once inside. An enchanting eatery with lots of lights and white interior.
