Kedric Francis, the Executive Editor of both Coast Magazine and The Orange County Register Magazine, joined us in-studio. Kedric had some thoughts about a variety of recent breakfast experiences including some family-friendly options. Now that Kedric has two young ones at home he’s highly conscious of kid-friendly options.
The show expanded to two-hours this morning. The new start is 10:00 a.m.
Chef Kim Canteenwalla opened Society Café at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. His wife is respected restaurant consultant and concept developer Elizabeth Blau. Together they opened a neighborhood casual spot, Honey Salt, in Rampart Commons across the street from Boca Park. It’s a locals’ place that’s also family friendly.
Amazingly, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay opened two new spots the same week. The larger concept is Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace. It’s already doing good business but there are consistency problems due to the mobs of guests being served.
Every Strip Hotel has a gourmet burger spot these days so Gordon Ramsay is in on that action, too, with Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood. Brock recommends their burgers and thinks it’s a fun lunch experience for the Family that won’t break the bank.
