New Bandini Restaurant

by hungryhorse

When does the "new" Bandini Restaurant and Hotel open for buisness? Sometime this month?

Re: New Bandini Restaurant

I'm pretty sure it was closed for good due to health concerns

No, the real story is told by the owner of the old and new "Casa de Bandini". The old was in Old Town San Diego and the new is in Carlsbad. The story is at website:

Re: New Bandini Restaurant

Okay. I see the Hotel part and should have known you meant the Cosmopolitan Hotel at the Casa de Bandini in Old Town San Diego. It is to open in mid June, so they say in San Diego. Here is a story on this venture:

Re: New Bandini Restaurant

by lmkluque

HungryHorse, the name, "Casa de Bandini Restaurant" is trademarked by Diane Powers. When she lost the lease to Bazaar del Mundo, she reopened her restaurants, in other parts of San Diego County. Casa de Pico, in La Mesa and Casa de Bandini, in Carlsbad.

This whole issue of Bazaar del Mundo/Diane Powers losing the lease in Old Town San Diego Historic Park is still a bit controversial with San Diegans.

So, the business that "was" Casa de Bandini Restaurant, located in Old Town SD State Historic Park is now named "The Cosmopolitan Hotel" The restaurant connected to it is also named, "The Cosmopolitan." This building has gone through a restoration and siesmic retrofitting. It is expected to open this month, but the Grand Opening is scheduled for 9 July, 2010. The food will not be the same style as before, more modern "fusion" style rather than "Mexican" cuisine. The look is quite different--basically the "old Mexican" look has changed to more of an "old Wild West" look.

Coincidently, we are having a San Diego VT Meeting at the Casa de Pico location in Old Town--now named "Cantina de Reyes," on 9 July. If any VT Member wants to join us sign in on the Meetings page.

Okay, but the whole thing smells of Bandini.

You may be right, but I bet anyone walking past The Cosmopolitan will not smell anything Bandini, like in the old days!

Can you imagine Salt Cod or Crab Cakes instead of Carne Asada or Carnitas?

Travel Tips for San Diego

Fireworks at Sea World

by tgerber

It wouldn’t be summer in San Diego without SeaWorld’s nightly fireworks which blends popular music with choreographed firework blasts that light up the sky! I have so many I wouldn't where to start. I consider San Diego to be my second home and I often get homesick. Blue sky, mellow wheather, La Jolla, Pacific Beach, Horton Plaza, the Zoo and Wild Animal Park, open air concerts at Humphrey's Halfmoon Bay...

by Monkey32

Spend atleast 3 days at the beach. Although they're nothing compared to the beaches off the coast of Hawaii or the French Riviera, they're filled with constant movement. My fondest memory is when we stay at our beach condo. The area we stay in is a college area, and there is always a comotion which keeps this residental area so lively.

Contemporary Mexican Cuisine

by vigi

We ended up having dinner here. Great food, good service & environment. Their popular margaritas only selling at USD3 each, no wonder everybody have one. My brother didn't like Maxican food before, but he love the food here!

El Cajon Boulevard!

by lmkluque

Originally, this was a long dusty road and until 1910 there was no business along it's side. It was the only highway that connected San Diego to El Centro, a distance of about 127 miles. As the years passed and car travel became more popular, the main type of business that sprouted up, were Auto Camps, Gas Stations, Auto Repair Shops and Restaurants.

Throughout it's history The Boulevard continued to attract trades people who would make a road trip convenient for the traveler and looking closely at the style of the buildings from Park Avenue to 70th Street, that history can be seen.

Today: El Cajon Boulevard still runs west to East, through the communities of University Heights and North Park, on into the city of La Mesa, and beyond. It is a long and broad street with seemingly little character. The broadness of this boulevard came from copying the great boulevards of Paris, unfortunately, it didn't inherit the charm.

Interstate-8 opened about forty years ago and took over from El Cajon Boulevard, the position of being the fastest and most convenient route east. Needless to say, The Boulevard became a depressed area and opened up an economic opportunity for start-up commerce.

Take a drive down this street and look closely. You may find many pockets of interesting aspects, such as the Colonial style Lafayette Hotel and other such left-overs from the past. Further, you may see signs of Arabic, Ethiopian, Vietnamese and other older or newer immigrant communities, which have joined in the American Dream by opening their own business and offering us a sample of their cultures. This is the place I shop for the ingredients to make Arabic food or Asian food. Not to mention that two of my favorite places are here.

Try the authentic Mexican food. If not Roberto's, try anyone of the touristy restaurants in Old Town, like the Old Town Mexican Cafe. They make homemade tortillas right near the front windo. You can't
go wrong. Get cultured and visit Balboa Park(pictured here).
