Amanda from Costa Mesa writes to recommend:
1. The Field (Irish pub), on Fifth Avenue right in the heart of the Gaslamp, is a great pub with very good food. Try the rasher and cheese boxty.
2. Chive on Fourth Avenue is a very stylish restaurant/bar with very good cocktails. Try the Very Berry.
3. The Shakespeare (British pub) is quite near downtown and has a brilliant patio for sitting outside and having a pint and some chips with curry sauce.
Enjoy and see you at INTA!
