100 Wines, the Hillcrest hotspot by the Cohn Restaurant Group, has welcomed Executive Chef Miguel Valdez to lead the restaurant’s culinary efforts. A native San Diegan, Chef Valdez brings a dynamic culinary background to 100 Wines, previously serving as the Executive Chef at the Red Door in Mission Hills in 2011 and alongside Chef Eric Bauer at the former Anthology.
Rising above a troubled youth in Logan Heights through hard work, determination, and enterprise, Chef Valdez was recently awarded the National Restaurant Association’s esteemed Faces of Diversity Award and has proven a major player in the San Diego cooking scene. In addition, Chef Valdez has refreshed the restaurant’s menu with more than a dozen new dishes that focus on bringing a fresh, Californian spin on the Mediterranean flavors that are synonymous with 100 Wines. Guests can also enjoy the updated 100 Wines brunch every Sunday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. with juicy mimosas for just $1.
