In today’s episode of the Happy Half Hour, hosts Erin Chambers Smith, Troy Johnson, and producer Archana Ram talk local restaurant buzz, like the heated debate about 10 Barrel Brewing, a Hillcrest staple closing, a collaboration between Tajima and Carnitas’ Snack Shack, and what to expect during Negroni Week (like a peppercorn-bell pepper libation at Officine Buona Forchetta).

Our guest is chef Nick Brune of Eco Caters, a sustainable local food business that caters the San Diego Gulls, Los Angeles Kings, the Dodgers, and more. He’s also leading his SoundBite Dinner Series at Lot 8, the new event space in Mission Valley.

We’re also chatting about the rise (and fall) of fancy burgers and 58 of the most stupid orders chefs have ever heard.

We end the show with recommendations for Two People/$50, including The Hake, 608 Oceanside, and Biga.
