Show 67, March 29, 2014: Managing Partner Russ Bendel, Vine Restaurant & Bar, San Clemente

Russ BendelThere is an exciting restaurant resurgence going on in San Clemente right now. Some wags are even calling it the new Laguna Beach. One of the pioneering, chef-driven restaurants there, Vine Restaurant & Bar, has a new proprietor.

A former chef (Jared Cook) has returned (as a partner) to oversee the farm-to-table menu. Second generation restaurateur Russ Bendel is our guest.

To keep it really fresh Chef Jared even tends to a mini-garden located right outside of the kitchen door.

Brunch is coming soon.
