Today’s episode is sponsored by Illumina, the innovative San Diego company dedicated to unlocking the power of the human genome to improve human health. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the sequencing of the first human genome and Illumina’s 20th birthday. To celebrate, we’re recording from the company’s Salt + Air Restaurant, located on Illumina’s new UTC campus headquarters.

On today’s show Troy, Erin, and Archana are talking about The Brigantine’s new concept Ketch Grill & Taps, South Park’s Fernside courtesy of some of San Diego’s top talents, and the US Grant’s soon-to-debut Prohibition era-themed bar inside the downtown hotel.

Our guest is David Cohn of Cohn Restaurant Group, the man behind San Diego staples like Island Prime, Coasterra, Corvette Diner, Bo-Beau, The Prado, Tacos Libertad, and more. He talks about what it was like to launch in Hillcrest in less vibrant times, how he met CRG executive chef-partner Deborah Scott, and what’s changed about those plastic straws at Corvette.

And did you hear? San Diego Magazine has launched its Insiders club, offering exclusive discounts at editor-selected restaurants, bars, spas, and more for just $10 per month. That’s right—it’ll cost you less than happy hour.
