Top of The Market on the San Diego Bay recently welcomed Ivan Flowers as its executive chef.
Flowers brings 25 years of fine cuisine experience and most recently he was owner of Fournos restaurant in Sedona, Ariz., and executive chef at L'Auberge de Sedona.
"We're honored and excited to have Chef Flowers lead the Top of The Market team, and to share his creative mind and passion for food with our guests," Dwight Colton, vice president of operations at the Fish Market Restaurants said in a release.
Set to open its doors in early October, North Park's newest casual bistro and bar, Waypoint Public, has a trio of partners ready to take over the former Linkery space on the corner of 30th Street and North Park Way.
The three are John Pani, a San Diego native and founder of the hospitality investment and management firm ELE Collective; Brian Jensen, owner of the Bottlecraft beer shops in Little Italy and North Park; and Amanda Baumgarten, who left Brian Malarkey's Herringbone earlier this summer.
The 5,000-square-foot concept, of both indoor and outdoor dining, will undergo a complete overhaul by the design team of Chris Bittner of North Park's OBR Architecture; interior designer Marianne Berg, formerly with Graham Downes Architecture Inc.; and Dylan Jones of Little Italy's Subtext Gallery.
Waypoints have traditionally been associated with navigational monuments, stopping places on life's journey. Waypoint Public aims to serve as a destination for families and friends to enjoy and will initially open door for dinner service, with plans for weekend brunch and happy hour shortly thereafter.
L'Auberge Del Mar recently added Jennifer Chapman to its team as national sales manager.
Chapman joins the hotel from Omni Interlocken Resort in Broomfield, Colo., where she was group sales manager. Her previous experience includes executive meetings manager at La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad; assistant director of banquets at Omni Interlocken and catering manager at the Del Mar fairgrounds.
