In this week’s podcast, Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson along with producer Archana Ram share the top stories from San Diego’s dining and drinking scene, including the opening of Campfire, a 6,000-square-foot restaurant in Carlsbad started by local hospitality pro John Resnick (our own Erin Chambers Smith profiled him for The Wall Street Journal in 2008), and Decoy Dockside, a design-forward newbie for San Marcos.
Speaking of design, Allison Whitt of DesignX reveals everything you wanted to know about restaurant architecture, from the materials to why plastic Adirondack chairs might actually be a good furniture choice. She also reveals cool secrets from working with former employer Bluemotif Architecture on Kettner Exchange and the Crack Shack.
