This is the big sign in Little Italy in San Diego. This style of font always reminds me of Rapture in BioShock. In Seattle there are quite a few signs that have this type of font too. Little Italy is decidedly different in feel here than in NYC. Of course pedestrian population is far far less dense and also fewer small little restaurants.

I’ve only been to a couple in the area but most of them look like the type of restaurants that you only eat at every once in a while because you’re going to be dropping at least $20-30 and even higher if you get alcohol. The places I’ve been to have been good so far with some new interesting foods I haven’t had before. I had a really great squid ink gnocchi when I was visiting last December.
