San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 22
A Taiwanese trend debuts on Convoy, holiday gifts for foodies, and the future of fine dining in San Diego
This week hosts Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson and producer Archana Ram share all the latest in dining and drinking news, like the debut of Eppig Brewing in North Park and Facing East Noodle & Bar on Convoy.
And ‘tis the season for gifting and eating; we share gift picks for the foodies in your life, everything from Ina Garten’s new cookbook and a Food52 collaboration to an under $5 gift idea with the most hilarious Amazon reviews.
Plus, Garo Minassian, owner of Parc in Bankers Hill (which replace Croce’s), talks about his long career as a San Diego restaurateur (Scalini’s, Harry’s Bar & Grill), the cost of running a restaurant, and the importance of white tablecloths.
We also talk “Small Bites,” including a great date night restaurant, the best things we ate this month, and a Westgate Hotel bartender who won a bi-national cocktail competition.
