Today we’re talking Metallica, John Resnick, and Jeune et Jolie.

In Hot Plates, we’re discussing the new Farmer’s Table in Little Italy, RMD Group’s new project Lumi with Michelin-starred chef Akira Back, Powerhaus Pizza’s debut in Pacific Beach. A collaboration beer between Metallica and Stone Brewing Co., and more.

In the guest seat is Resnick, here to chat about his East Coast roots and moving to San Diego to work at The Hard Rock Hotel then The Pearl before transitioning to the restaurant world. Resnick logged years at Craft & Commerce and Ironside Fish & Oyster for CH Projects, but in 2016 he broke out on his own, opening Campfire in Carlsbad. He shares why he picked North County and all the issues that came with building a restaurant in a former auto garage. At his latest concept Jeune et Jolie, he’s highlighting modern French cuisine, a raw bar, and elevated bistro style by Campfire designers Bells + Whistles.

Our hot topic is all about the reinstated ban on foie gras, and how restauranteurs like Resnick feel about it. In Two People/$50, we’re recommending Kindred, ChiKo, Dija Mara, and Din Tai Fung.

This is also my last episode with the Happy Half Hour team. Next month I’m leaving my post at San Diego Magazine to pursue a big dream, which I tell you all about in this episode. Thank you to everyone for listening, chiming in, not minding (too much) when we eat during recording, and for being a part of this HHH family. I’m eternally grateful.
