This is one of my go-to spots in Downtown San Diego. It's located directly across from Petco Park in the East Village neighborhood. The food is awesome. I highly recommend the Bacon and Mashed potato pizza. On of the best thin crust pizzas I've ever had. They also have a really good salad. There's only one salad on the menu, but it's more than enough for me. The salad has mixed greens with sliced pears, candied walnuts, and gorgonzola cheese. The only thing I find lacking at Basic is the beer selection. I prefer more unique craft beers offered at many downtown bars and restaurants, unfortunately, their selection is not as varied and leaves a bit to be desired for an otherwise unique place.. Nonetheless, I always enjoy a quick meal at Basic, and the price is decent too. If you're interested, the Basic website is here: www.barbasic.com/menus.php
This is a handheld 5 exposure HDR tonemapped with Photomatix. The more than my usual color and textures comes from Topaz Adjust. I haven't used the Adjust plug-in for awhile and decided to play around with some of the sliders I don't normally use and see what happens.
