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.
