“We are so excited to be partnering with San Diego Chef Claudette Zepeda!” said Event Organizer, Steve Georgiev. “We believe that with her local influence and unique skillset she gained through her time on Top Chefseason 15 that she is the perfect choice for our San Diego dining experience. We can’t wait for guests of Dinner With A View to enjoy an enchanting evening under the stars featuring a standout menu created using world-renowned flavors and locally sourced ingredients.”
