TOAST Enoteca & Cucina
Nice cozy spotI originally discovered Toast on a random stroll in San Diego's east village. I had lunch at the bar by myself--I was literally the only diner in the restaurant. But I had their signature octopus salad and a terrific glass of tempranillo. So, the next time I was in town, I took clients for dinner there--twice! We had very pleasant meals both times, though on the second night, the octopus salad was sold out, so I had to go without! One complaint was that several in our party the first night found a lot of the food too salty--especially the pork shoulder, which was otherwise melty-tender and fantastic. The roasted pear appetizer with gorgonzola is great--I will definitely have that again when I go back.
The wine list is amazing.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat little spotWent here with a group in from out of town. not looking for a crazy expensive night but something memorable. This place was great.

They also have an abundance of wine by the glass 400+ that they use special dispensing system. Good place just to relax and enjoy wine as well.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMReasonable wine prices asReasonable wine prices as they have a carry out license with a small $7.00 corkage fee. Also very reasonable. So you are paying retail prices not restaurant pricing. Food was superb. High quality products and ample sizes.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
