One of my other favorite places to eat during San Diego Comic Con and any time I am in San Diego is Marina Kitchen in the Marriott Marquis. It is a little more expensive than what I would usually spend BUT it has ALWAYS been worth every penny. During SDCC they usually have a minimal menu but every item is yummy. They are not a gluten free facility but the do offer their own gluten free bread and can modify almost anything for you.
My favorite meal is their Mahi-Mahi but it was not available the last time I was there. I am hoping that it was not available because it was fall and just not on the menu. I have only been there in the summer, so I am hopeful it will be back on the menu next year. So this time I went for the Seared Ahi meal with a Margherita flatbread made with gluten free flatbread and their Truffle Fries. Oh my goodness, just writing that and then looking at the photos, I am salivating. Full disclosure I do NOT like fish eggs and for some reason the Ahi was made with them even though it is not listed on the menu. Luckily they are easily moved to the side.
Here are the photos and current write up/prices for Fall 2016.
Seared Ahi $19.00
pea shoots, fingerling potato, soft cooked egg, mustard vinaigrette
Truffle Fries $12.00
truffle salt, parsley, Grana Padano, Garlic aioli
gluten free, vegetarian
Margherita Flat Bread $14.50
fresh mozzarella, Grana Padano, basil, olive oil
gluten free bread, vegetarian
So you can see it is a little more expensive but it is worth it to me as the items are made from scratch and they are different and special. I recommend you check this out if you are in the area and note that they do have a gluten free crisp for dessert but I always eat too much during dinner and have yet to try it. Sigh
