Dobson’s Bar and Restaurant is a hidden treasure in the heart of Downtown San Diego/Gaslamp Quarter. For the last 40 years, this has been the hot spot for business lunches and dinners frequented by many local and nationwide celebrities. Paul Dobson, the namesake for Dobson’s bar and restaurant, is one of America’s few professional Bullfighters. The food is California cuisine with a touch of Italian, French, Spanish and Asian cuisine. One thing that both local San Diegans and Zagat can agree on is that this is one of the top restaurants in San Diego. Due to the limited seating and popularity, reservations are highly recommended. Owner Paul Dobson “works a room better than Sinatra”, which explains why this “local tradition” downtown remains, “after all these years”, a “high-powered, hobnob spot”; the Cal kitchen “serves up delicious, innovative food, along with old standbys” (“have the mussel bisque and think of heaven”).
