Show 554, December 2, 2023: Chef Eric Bost, Jeune et Jolie and Campfire, Carlsbad, CA Part Two

Chef Eric Bost

Jeune et Jolie (Young & Beautiful in French) in Carlsbad is a highly acclaimed, One Star Michelin rated, fine-dining establishment overseen by Executive Chef Eric Bost (ex-Auburn in Los Angeles) and proprietor John Resnick.

“It’s culinary experience celebrating the moment, reimagining French cuisine through the vibrant lens of the Southern California landscape, with a 4-course menu in which guests make their own selections, offered at $115 per person. Reservations are available for dining inside the restaurant or outdoors on the garden patio beneath twinkling stars.”

“For those guests looking for a more casual evening, Jeune et Jolie features “Le Menu du Bar”, an à la carte offering available for walk-in guests at its bar and lounge.”

“Jeune et Jolie is a place to celebrate life’s special occasions, but also a place to celebrate the ordinary.”

Jeune et Jolie’s sister establishment in Carlsbad is the more casual, New American, Campfire. “It’s a return to the origins of cooking and hospitality, celebrating the spirit of their name as guests gather around a fire while the kitchen creates honest food to share it with friends.”

“Also led by Chef Eric Bost, Campfire draws inspiration from the coasts, forests, mountains and deserts that make up the vibrant and eclectic landscape of California and provide profoundly distinct flavors, context and emotions, all of which are best captured by getting outside and setting up camp.”

In conclusion Chef Eric previews his new projects (with colleague John Resnick) for 2024. It’s a pair of restaurants under one roof: Wildland (all-day neighborhood café and bakery) and Lilo (standalone, 22-seat chef’s table experience.)

Chef Eric Bost takes a another break from his busy kitchens to continue with us.
