One of the perks of my job is searching out new places for me to have lunch at when I’m in a different part of the city. This past weekend I landed at a real gem of an eatery and I wanted to highlight it on todays blog. ‘Pete’s Seafood and Sandwich’ restaurant is located in North Park in a quaint neighborhood on 30th street. The main reason I went in was to try their lobster roll which I had read was simply delicious. Now, I’ve tried lobster rolls in many places all over the country, but Pete’s is by far the best I’ve ever had. As I sat at the bar eating it, I almost wept out of sheer joy. The roll is as simple as they come but the roll and the barely dressed lobster meat are pure Heaven. Because of this experience I decided to go back for a few days to try more of the menu items and to meet Pete, himself. Pete was born and raised in Boston and spent most of his time in restaurants. He is cheerful, animated, and fun to talk to. One of the things that stuck with me was the fact that Pete orders all his seafood and a lot of ingredients from the east coast. He says the quality can’t be matched so why settle for second best. ~ 90% of everything in the restaurant has never been frozen, and all of the sauces and sides are homemade in the restaurant. I also tried the lobster taco and the salsa that came with it was outstanding. The clam chowder is perfect and the fish and chips are lightly breaded and possibly the best I’ve tasted. If you aren’t in the mood for seafood, no worries… this restaurant serves up a variety of menu items, all popular and delicious. Pete’s is a no-frills restaurant and also has an outdoor seating area where you can sit with your dog if you are out for a stroll. ~ Have you ever watched that one show on TV when the host travels to all kinds of restaurants all over the country, showcasing one at a time? I watch it all the time and always wish that those restaurants were closer to my home. But now I have found that place in Pete’s and I will be a happy regular from here on out! ~ Pete’s is located at: 3382 30th St., San Diego, CA 92104 *Open 7 days a week from 11am – 9pm * Phone # 619-255-8940 www.bostonpetes.com
