Hi Felicia! Sadly, I do not recognize anyone =( but the food sounds delicious!
I laughed when I read ur comment on my last posting! One of the females in the picture is actually moving to San Diego after she graduates, which was yesterday, so I mentioned to her your SD blog!!! Two of the other women were my friends from Sweden and the last three postings were actually the same person who accompanies me on outdoor adventures. She is also from Sweden but living in Hawai'i =)

I recognized quite a few people including Alex Trebeck and Soupy Sales.
Growing up on Long Island I developed a liking for Jewish food - so all you've mentioned makes me salivate...
What made me chuckle however, is the posted menu: right under the kreplach is tortilla...Oh, yes, we've got to move with the times ;-)

Thanks everyone! I recognized Tony Danza (actor), and 2 locals Marti Emerald (newscaster) and Joan Embery (Zoo ambassador). Some Charger (our American football team) fans should be able to recognize a few pics?!

My friends and I love going here just to gawk -- and dare each other to order the tongue that seems to be in a lot of dishes. No takers yet.
