San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 14

Saffron expands, The New York Times profiles a local chef, Campfire’s bar manager stops by with cocktails, and more


Published:

Today on Happy Half Hour, Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson along with producer Archana Ram dive into the city’s dining and drinking news, starting with the closure of Pan Bon in Little Italy and the expansion of Saffron.

Later in the show, we discuss The New York Times's feature on Addison chef William Bradley, as well as the newspaper’s decision to cut regional arts coverage (including reviews of restaurants in the Tri-State area). Plus, In-N-Out did a pop-up eatery in London—and sold out of most items within an hour.

Plus, Leigh Lacap, bar manager at Campfire, joins us for cocktails and shares how he developed the drink menu at the new Carlsbad restaurant—while we all sip on the Grizzly Folk, a bourbon-tamarind medley he created for Campfire.

And breaking restaurant news! Troy has the scoop on a new four-story mixed-used space coming to La Mesa.
