You’re Invited: Dinner With Our Food Critic

On March 21, Troy Johnson and El Jardin’s Chef and Partner Claudette Zepeda-Wilkins will team up for a one-time event for Insiders



San Diego Magazine’s Insiders program is all about curated experiences and discounts selected by our editors who know San Diego best. Benefits include a hosted monthly happy hour, free tickets to occasional shows, ongoing discounts at restaurants and bars around town, plus much more. The newest perk was announced last week: the chance to dine with Food Critic Troy Johnson, and Chef and Partner at El Jardin, Claudette Zepeda-Wilkins.

On March 21, Insiders are invited to a memorable and intimate evening with a delectable 3-course meal. Claudette, a former Top Chef contestant, and Troy will share personal stories and insights during an interactive culinary experience.

El Jardin opened this past June in Liberty Station. Its colorful, eclectic décor perfectly complements the vibrant flavors of the food. With a menu inspired by the diversity of Mexico’s cuisine and an onsite garden, dishes change frequently with the seasons. The Food Critic’s Dinner will feature three courses, created especially for the Insiders. Each course will be paired with hand-crafted cocktails.
