Chef Andrew Gruel savoring a New Jersey style Pizza

Our own Chef Andrew Gruel the Founder of Big Parm (New Jersey-style pizza), Two Birds and the soon to launch, full-service Calico Fish House (in Huntington Beach) provides another timely and informative Ask the Chef segment where Chef Andrew responds to listeners thoughtful inquiries.

It’s no secret that finding reliable employees for both the front and back-of-the-house in the restaurant business is currently a challenge. Once you hire and train good employees the next hurdle is actually retaining them. Chef Andrew is about to debut his new, full-service Calico Fish House in Huntington Beach. We’ll explore the current staffing challenge dilemma with him.

Chef Andrew and Lauren Gruel have a new fast casual concept, Burger 101, coming soon to the 2-level, Kitchen United complex on the 3rd St. Promenade in Santa Monica. It’s Chef Andrew’s version of a value-priced, honest burger (and loaded fries) using quality ingredients including a premium burger patty sourced from West Coast Prime Meats.

Chef Andrew is currently hosting a fun recipe contest to coincide with the soon-to-open Calico Fish House in Huntington Beach. If your original recipe is the winner that dish permanently goes on Calico’s menu (credited to you) and every time you visit Calico Fish House you can enjoy your creation absolutely free for a full year. That’s a deal. Details on Calico’s Instagram feed.
