On today's episode of All in the Industry®, Shari Bayer's guest is Bay Area native David Nayfeld, Executive Chef and Co-Owner of the award-winning restaurants Che Fico and Che Fico Alimentari in San Francisco, CA. David, a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America, boasts a venerable restaurant pedigree having worked alongside some of the most esteemed names in the industry. In 2018, he opened his first restaurant, Che Fico, which features Italian cuisine through the lens of California. In 2019, he opened Che Fico Alimentari, a Roman-inspired, wine- centric restaurant and Italian market featuring traditional Italian fare. Che Fico was named one of Bon Appetit's Top 10 Best New Restaurants in America, as well as one of Esquire Magazine's Best New Restaurants. David recently began co-hosting a new podcast called The Main Ingredient, which takes a deep dive with some favorite artists, chefs, musicians, actors, and producers. Today's show also features Shari's PR tip to practice patience; Industry News discussion on Covid-19; and Solo Dining experience to commemorate The Restaurant at Meadowood in St. Helena, CA, which was tragically damaged earlier this week due to a glass fire in the Napa region. Our hearts go out to Christopher Kostow, Maria Kostow and the entire #TRAMily. Listen at Heritage Radio Network; subscribe/rate/review our show at iTunes, Stitcher or Spotify. Follow us @allindustry.
