In two days, San Diego is going to have, finally, it's very first professional pop up in the form of Relate at Bistro St. Germain's in Encinitas. Relate is the brainchild of Chef Daniel Moody, the RelationChef, whom is probably most famous for being Ludo Lefebvre's sous for Ludobites 3.0-6.0. Or, maybe for his foie gras powdered donuts from his Test Kitchen run. Personally, I know him more for Twitter bantering over which of us is more awesome. I still say me.
Whether you've had personal interaction with him or not, a trip to San Diego should be on a list of priorities in the month of February when Relate takes over the kitchen of Bistro St. Germain's from the 3rd through the 26th (closed on Sundays and Mondays). Described as contemporary French cuisine with a down-home American flare, the 5-6 course prix fixe menu will run $50+ per person with wine and beer pairings available.
The Catty Critic, Kirbie's Cravings and I will be traipsing down to SD on the 19th. Stay tuned for the follow up post. I'm really excited for this new venture of Chef Dan's and wish him luck in his adventure.
