San Diego Restaurant Week’s wintertime event comes at during a time of the year traditionally dedicated to resolution keeping. When the television, the newspaper coupon section and virtually every advertisement is for weight loss and exercise, the restaurateurs of San Diego county invite us to taste their best dishes at very affordable rates during the last weeks of January. What would be a better excuse to cheat…just a little.
