This episode is sponsored by the SoNo Fest. The free street festival returns to the South Park-North Park area on Sunday, December 2 with 40 of the best restaurants from both neighborhoods competing in the ultimate #chilismackdown. There will also be a craft beer garden, food trucks, live music, and a kid’s fest. The best part? All proceeds go to the McKinley School Foundation. This week we’re coming at you from Fernside, the new South Park cocktail bar and eatery from Christian Siglin (Bracero, The Grass Skirt, Cutwater Spirits), Shane Gerde (UnderBelly, Cutwater Spirits), and Adam Cook (Bluefoot Bar & Lounge) and also one of the participating restaurants in this year’s SoNo Fest & Chili Cook-Off. In Hot Plates, we’re talking about big changes coming to Urban Solace in January, the new Asian-inspired speakeasy with a major designer behind the concept, Pure Project’s next tasting room location, and our comprehensive Thanksgiving guide, packed with traditional turkey feasts, eclectic buffets, catering options, and plenty of cocktails. Our guest is chef Amy DiBiase of the new InterContinental Hotel’s Vistal restaurant. She talks to us about how she works with a scientist to ensure seafood sustainability, the best dishes to try at Vistal, and why the poke trend may be peaked. In Two People/$50, we’re recommending El Jardín, Seasons 52, the Tuna Harbor Dockside Market, Mirin Cafe, and Hernandez Hideaway. And did you hear? San Diego Magazine has launched its Insiders club, offering exclusive discounts at editor-selected restaurants, bars, spas, and more for just $10 per month. We’re off next week, so have a happy, safe, and delicious Thanksgiving holiday­—cheers!
