Show 33, June 29, 2013: Kedric Francis, Executive Editor of Coast Magazine

Kedric Francis of Coast Magazine and the Orange County Register MagazineKedric is back with us in-studio. He is also the co-founding editor of the new Orange County Register Magazine.

The (now available) July issue of Coast is the annual restaurant book. It contains lots of quality info about the vibrant OC restaurant scene.

Kedric’s standout piece is “Foodie Block Party.” “We take a tour of OC’s top destination dining zones and centers of culinary cool to see what’s new and next.”

The profiled culinary districts include Downtown Santa Ana, South Coast Plaza, Old Town Orange, Fashion Island, Laguna Beach, and SoCo in Costa Mesa.

Jet’s favorite piece in the issue is Kedric’s sidebar, “Best Restaurants in The Worst Locations.” For instance, the popular Red Table in Huntington Beach is not even visible from the main auto entrance to the strip center they are in. The restaurant is tucked behind the Trader Joe’s.
