Chef Andrew Gruel has some exciting personal business news in his “Ask the Chef” segment.
Chef Andrew and his wife, Lauren, have amicably sold their interest in Slapfish (founded ten years ago) to their former Houston-based partners. Next up is the creation of a new restaurant management enterprise. First is a launch of a fresh seafood restaurant and full bar with table service in the former Fish Camp location on Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach. Look for a September opening. Also, the Big Parm NJ-style, fast-casual pizza concept will be expanding and Chef Andrew’s popular Two Birds chicken restaurant will reopen in a new location.
