After a day of Holiday shopping and family get-together's my stomach and appetite could use a little Holiday cheer and a break from the typical food norm and craziness of the Holiday season. As much as I love Ham, Turkey and all the fixings, I crave for something different, something I can find and taste at one of these Holiday hot spot restaurants in San Diego. These restaurant hot spots offer a respite from the madness, even if for just an hour or two, it's enough to tide me over and help me tackle the rest of the Holiday season, with the gusto and attitude required to survive the season sane, in-tact and happy.

333 Pacific - Oceanside
Martini's are the perfect cure to relieve the stresses of the holiday season and 333 Pacific in Oceanside, with over 100 Vodka's from all over the world, just might be Vodka Martini Heaven. Celebrate the season sampling meals from a delectable menu featuring Steaks, Crab, Lobster and Fish, all while taking in the 180 degree views of the Pacific Ocean. Feel free to walk off the calories and buzz on the Oceanside Pier located directly across the street.


Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Gaslamp Quarter San Diego
Love meat? Then Bossa Nova your way to Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse in the Gaslamp District and let the Brazilian rhythm and flavors of expertly grilled meat cut by Gaucho chefs delight your food senses. Sample a variety of cuts, grilled to perfection such as the Picanha or Filet Mignon, which melts oh so deliciously into your mouth. Try the seasonal menu featuring all fire-roasted meats, Traditional Brazilian Side Dishes and Seasonal Beef.


JRDN Restaurant - Pacific Beach
Located on the Boardwalk at Pacific Beach, inside the 123 Hotel, the warm and inviting atmosphere of JRDN Restaurant is the perfect hot spot to enjoy killer views of the ocean with a friend or two, sipping handcrafted signature cocktails, such as the JRDN Negroni featuring Hendrick's Gin, Aperol and Dolin Rouge. Kick back, relax, and take in the views while noshing on the Tomahawk Steak Plate that has enough mouth-watering steak cuts to feed two with ease. Cruise the PB Boardwalk afterwards and people watch all day or night long. 


Himalayan Cuisine - La Mesa
Savor the flavors of Nepal or India at the Himalayan Cuisine, a La Mesa hot spot filled with the exotic aroma, colorful outfits and music that is sure to take over your senses and transport you to the fascinating locales of India or Nepal. Bring your Vegetarian friend or relative here and enjoy Indian, Himalayan and Nepalese dishes such as the Veggi Coconut Curry featuring mixed vegetables cooked with coconut, Himalayan sauce and spices or the extra-spicy Paneer Chili with Stir-Fried paneer (fresh cheese) sauteed with different chilies cooked in Himalayan herbs and spices. Tip: located inside a strip mall, but don't let that stop you from entering into a world of exotic flavors!
