Lick the Plate
As I spent the past few years covering the culinary world in San Diego, the name Quinn Wilson kept popping up.
I hate to say this, but there are some popular BBQ joints in San Diego and North County that take some shortcuts that would make a BBQ purist wince, and probably be hesitant to go back.
If you live in North County, there is a good chance you have seen Basiltops Pesto at a local farmer’s market, Whole Foods, or Seaside Market.
While Valentine’s Day typically recognizes the love between people, I thought I’d put a Lick the Plate spin on it and celebrate some food and drink finds that I can honestly say I love, in a foodie kind of way of course.
Between writing this column and interviewing chefs for my show on KPRi, there is no shortage of memorable dining experiences.
Once in a while, a new restaurant opens that really excites me on many levels.
On my regular Sunday walk through the Leucadia Farmer’s Market, there are certain vendors where there is always a line of enthusiastic customers patiently waiting their turn.
Stone Brewing Co. is a North County based business that has gained an international reputation as a world-class beer maker.
The new Bing Surfboards retail store opened in Leucadia recently and it’s a beauty.
