On today’s show, we’re talking about two buzzy new imports: the new dumpling restaurant that’s landed at Westfield UTC by way of Tawian, as well as Cava, the fast-casual Mediterranean concept that started in Washington, D.C. and recently opened an Encinitas outpost. Less exciting news is the closing of Russian-Georgian restaurant Kafe Sobaka and Cat Eye Club, the downtown cocktail lounge that has shuttered to make room for a Blind Burro expansion. In the guest seat is Bernard Guillas, the France-born chef who has served as Executive Chef of the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club since 1994, directing its three restaurants and all catering operations. He tells us how he and the restaurant keep things fresh, the number of marriage proposals he sees inside the restaurant daily, and the scoop on that sea lion who wound up inside The Marine Room. In Two People/$50, we’re recommending DaoFu, Vistal, Nine-Ten Restaurant and Bar, and Taegukgi Korean BBQ. And did you hear? San Diego Magazine has launched its Insiders club, offering exclusive discounts at editor-picked restaurants, bars, spas, and more for just $10 per month. That’s right—it’ll cost you less than happy hour.
