San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 111

A local vodka company wins big, the new omakase-only sushi restaurant on Convoy, and Bertrand Hug of Mister A’s and Mille Fleurs drops by

In today’s episode, we’re talking about Misadventure Vodka’s gold medal win, a 13-seat restaurant on Convoy that’s sticking to omakase-only service, and the return of San Diego Beer Week in November.

Today we’re joined by Bertrand Hug, the longtime San Diego restauranteur (by way of rural southwest France) behind some of the city’s most iconic fine dining spots. He chats with us about why it took 10 years to gain ownership of Mister A’s, how he didn’t have “a cent to his name” when he opened Mille Fleurs, and what he thinks of San Diego’s current culinary landscape. Plus, he has 12 years left of his Mister A’s lease, so what’s next?

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