Special Episode: Live from Our Best Restaurants Party


Today we have a special episode of the Happy Half Hour for you, which was recorded at our annual Best Restaurants celebration last week at the pre-party event at Room & Board.

We chatted with five different chefs who were at the event, and talked about everything from what it’s like to be a Best Restaurants winner to the dishes they prepared that evening.

Hear from Brad Wise, executive chef of Fort Oak (critic’s pick for Best New Restaurant); William Bradley, executive chef of Addison, the only San Diego restaurant to receive a Michelin star (critic’s pick for Best French Restaurant); Ludivine Ryon Mas, co-owner of Le Parfait Paris (critic’s pick for Best Dessert); Christine Rivera, chef de cuisine of Galaxy Taco (critic’s pick for Best Fish Taco); and Steven Torres, co-owner of Pop Pie (runner up for reader’s pick for Best Indulgent Eats) and Stella Jean’s (critic’s pick for Best Ice Cream).
