San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 95

In today’s episode hosts Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson along with producer Archana Ram are discussing San Diego restaurant news, like Supernatural Sandwiches heading to Pacific Beach, a major dinner event with all female chefs happening May 27, and a barbecue concept coming to San Carlos this summer.

Joining us is Brian Malarkey, chef and co-owner of Herb & Wood, Farmer & The Seahorse, and Green Acre. He’s here to celebrate making the cover of our new Best Restaurants issue—that’s Herb & Wood’s sea bass on the cover—and winning Best of the Best Fancy Restaurant, as chosen by Troy. He’s also dishing about the highs and lows of being a prolific restaurateur, the shaky start to Herb & Eatery (Herb & Wood’s next-door café), and the two new restaurants he’ll be bringing to the city in 2019.

Plus, we’re gearing up for our big 100th episode, which we’ll be taping on Hornblower's Sights & Sips Cocktail Cruise June 22. And we want you there! Enter here for a chance to win one of 10 pairs of tickets to join us on the bay.
