🍕🍕Part of my role at @dinelocalsd is to share my favorite dining experiences with others. This often has me asking myself- what makes the perfect dining experience? What's more important- the food, or the service? What are the factors that leave me wanting MORE?
I've thought about these questions a lot over the past few months and have noticed a common thread. The restaurants that REALLY leave me wanting more, are the ones that feel like there's magic in the air. While not completely quantifiable, I don't know any other way to put it. It's the same feeling I had when BO-beau opened. Luna and I always say- "it was pure magic." Is it the excitement in the air? Is it the food- beautifully crafted, delicious, thoughtful, and fresh? Is it the service- attentive, approachable, and happy to be there? Or is it the ambience- comfortable, visually pleasing, and inviting? Magic is not any one of those things. It is the cohesiveness of ALL of those things, enveloping you in a whirlwind of elation.
I made this short video of my favorite pizza place in San Diego (actually, it's the best pizza I've ever had, period. Ever. Anywhere.). @tributepizza continues to amaze me with every bite, and every visit. I cannot say enough good things about Tribute Pizza, and I encourage you to visit it and experience it for yourself. In the mean time, peep the video to get a sneak peak :) #specialtyproduce
