If you're headed to San Diego Comic-Con (July 18-21), chances are you'll be looking to eat absolutely anywhere but the Convention Center itself. And while the Gaslamp Quarter (adjacent to the 'Con) is pretty much wall-to-wall restaurants, sussing out which spots are worthwhile usually takes some trial and error. Generally speaking, it's a good idea to head a smidge off the well-worn tourist trail to places like the East Village, where several bars and restaurants are offering discounts when you flash your badge.
