We’ve all been to memorable restaurants. Usually, it’s the food that sets the place apart but sometimes it’s the quirky, fun or original name that stays in our memory long after an unremarkable meal.
In my travels, I’ve stumbled upon some truly notable restaurant names. Two cities stand out in terms of the sheer number of remarkable names – Halifax, Nova Scotia and San Diego, California. One city is on the East Coast of Canada and the other on the West Coast of the States. They are worlds apart in climate, topography and culture but apparently not in naming restaurants!
In part one of Remarkable Restaurant Names; I’ve selected my most memorable restaurant and pub names in San Diego. They are: The Tispy Crow, Bite Me, The Hopping Pig Gastropub, and Sogno di Vino (I dream of wine), which was also memorable for its fresh and local cuisine. I passed on dining at the gastropub.
