Waterbar in Pacific Beach

In today’s episode, hosts Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson along with producer Archana Ram are talking restaurant news, including the new Waterbar in Pacific Beach, Point Loma Fish Shop’s debut, and the closing of the first Bull Taco location. Plus, some need-to-know news about Pancho Villa market.

Our guest is Isabel Cruz, the chef who helped launch Isabel’s Cantina, The Mission, Coffee Cup, and Barrio Star. She talks about launching restaurants in San Diego more than 20 years ago and what to expect from her cookbook, out this April.
