  1. i’ve been wondering about this place since it changed into the cosmopolitan (from the casa de bandini). we were in old town a month or so ago and took photos by the covered wagon near it. i think we ate at 2540 bistro that day. anyways, yeah, you’re right, us locals think of old town as a tourist trap, but there really is a lot of interesting history there.

    nice write up and pix! cool too that you got to meet the chef. 🙂

    booze! if i recall correctly, the rind of the chese was created by splashing or rubbing or something with alcohol. everything was so yummy!

    There are two desserts I love in San Diego (well, two of the buttery/caramel kind) – the butterscotch pudding from Banker’s Hill and the salted caramel pot de creme from Urban Solace. But now I want to go try the butterscotch pot de creme from Cosmopolitan… I mean, for research!

    I’m glad it sounds like there’s a tasty reason to go into Old Town. I usually think of the whole area as a tourist trap with bad parking!

      Yes, yes… for research. Research blogging purposes. Excellent idea. Now I in turn have to try the one at Urban Solace for the same reasons!
