HILLCREST— Our sources tell us that Miguel Valdez, who joined 100 Wines as executive chef in Fall 2013, will be leaving the Hillcrest restaurant. The Cohn Restaurant Group confirmed that Valdez is departing next week and says they are currently interviewing for his replacement. [EaterWire]

CHULA VISTA— James Beard Award-winning chef/restaurateur Richard Sandoval, who opened Venga Venga Cantina and Tequila Bar in Otay Ranch Town Center in September 2013, has launched a new Destination menu series that will run through the end of September and rotate every six months to feature food from a different region in Mexico. This month kicks off with cuisine inspired by Guadalajara, from street food to seafood, including a grilled octopus tostada and pork chicharron street tacos. [EaterWire]
