Carmel Valley Chophouse Opening Delayed

August 22, 2017 – Despite initial plans for a September 1st ribbon cutting, the new Carmel Valley Chophouse is still undergoing renovation and now expected to open from mid-to-late September.

“It’s hard to remodel and run a restaurant at the same time,” says Jennifer Roux, who with her husband chef Fabrice Roux, also owns Carmel Valley’s Mediterranean bistro Roux. Their new meat-forward restaurant is moving into the space formerly occupied by Brendan Jones’ Lokal—which closed in June.

The new place will feature certified Angus beef steaks and fine whiskeys. “Roux is an expression of Fabrice’s past, all the places he used to vacation around the Mediterranean, while the Chophouse is for nothing more than our neighbors,” says Jennifer.

“We’ve received such a warm welcome since coming here and it’s our way … Read More

Meet Award Winning Winemaker Megan Bell

August 22, 2017 – It’s a wickedly good name for a wine label, Margins. It conjures up so many different notions and concepts, but the intent of winemaker Megan Bell, comes from her personal quest to focus on forgotten or marginalized varietals.

Likewise, Megan Bell herself is not someone you’re likely to forget. She’s the secret shepherd behind Beauregard’s sparkling wine program, and most of the whites produced under this label. She’s been assistant winemaker to Ryan Beauregard for going on three years now, and he makes no bones about his adoration for her.

This summer a 2015 Ben Lomond Mountain Chardonnay she made from start to finish for Beauregard won Double Gold, Best of Class in the International Women’s Wine Competition in Santa Rosa, while Bell’s own 2016 Margins Chenin … Read More

Fairway One is Newest Lodging Option in Pebble Beach

August 15, 2017 – The first guests are arriving this week at Pebble Beach’s newest lodging option Fairway One. Just in time for car week, executives from Ferrari have bought out the entire 38-room facility and will park 75 Ferraris along the first fairway at the famed Pebble Beach Golf Links.

Fairway One includes 30 guest rooms, many with ocean views, two four-bedroom cottages named for Arnold Palmer and Clint Eastwood and an elegant meeting facility. At the grand opening party last Friday, CEO Bill Perocchi said the new accommodations were the first step in a series of renovations leading up to the resort’s 100th anniversary in 2019—when it will host the U.S. Open championships. 

“Guests at Fairway One will get the same style and services that you get at … Read More

New TA Lettuce Developed From Chef to Field

August 8, 2017 – It seems only natural that growers and produce folks would want to attend Tanimura & Antle’s first-ever Field Days—after all, looking at innovations in planting and field packing is essential to their work—but what’s the attraction for retail and food service customers?

It’s all because of collaboration, according to Samantha Cabaluna, vice president of brand marketing and communications for the ag giant headquartered in Spreckels.

“Today, collaboration among seed breeders, farmers and their retail and food service customers is essential to address the challenges of meeting the evolving needs of a variety of customers,” says Cabaluna. “Partnering early on makes for a more satisfying experience for everyone.” 

In other words, chefs, food service and retail have particular desires and needs, and Field Days are a great way for them … Read More
