Anthology, San Diego
Tel: 619 595 0300
Concierge.com's insider take:
A throwback to the golden age of swanky supper clubs, Anthology offers quality live music on a state-of-the-art stage in view of the three-level, Cotton club–esque dining room. From Latin beats and smooth jazz to acoustic classic rock and college a capella, headliners cater to the full gamut of San Diego's music scene. Bigger-name acts include Vonda Shepard, Fountains of Wayne, and Marc Cohn of "Walking in Memphis" fame, but the house band, which plays on open-seating Tuesdays, is also worth seeing. The rest of the week you'll need a reservation in addition to the cover charge to see the show. Happily, the food matches the energy of the music thanks to Four Seasons vet, chef Eric Bauer. Try his specialty: artichoke barigoule paired with white beans and yellowfin tuna.—Audrey Davidow
