In the second episode of the “Scene in San Diego Featuring Eater” podcast, a new partnership between Eater San Diego and The Scene, NBC 7’s lifestyle platform, we are continuing to explore the state of the restaurant industry in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic and keep you informed as we navigate the ever-changing food scene.
As San Diego County reels after a major reopening rollback that ordered a temporary hold on indoor dining, instituted a restaurant curfew, and shuttered bars again, local restaurant owners are now scrambling to shift and expand their outdoor dining options. Modern French restaurant Jeune & Jolie, Eater’s 2019 Restaurant of Year, recently pivoted to an all-outdoor fine-dining restaurant that only serves a chef’s tasting menu. Owner John Resnick, who also owns Campfire in Carlsbad, joins us to talk about how the restaurant is adjusting to the new format and shares how he and his employees are trying to provide an award-winning dining experience while keeping morale up in this difficult climate.
