Eating suggestions: "I really like this chain of Brazilian steakhouses called Fogo de Chao (fogodechao.com). The Fish Market (thefishmarket.com) in San Diego has really fresh seafood. Porkyland Mexican Grill & Catering (goporkyland.com) is good. And the Steakhouse at Azul (brigantine.com/locations_azul.html) in La Jolla, which has really delicious beef ragu."
