San Diego restaurant Red Card Café announced Monday that Jeff Larson will join the restaurant as its executive chef.
Larson, who comes from Napa Valley, served as executive chef of Goose & Gander in St. Helena where he oversaw daily operations of the iconic Michelin recommended property. Prior to this, Larson trained at Napa’s Kitchen Door as well as the Michelin-recommended Angele Restaurant + Bar.
“The passion of the ownership inspired me to join the Red Card team,” Larson said. “They are dedicated to serving a certain level of food which is in alignment with my standards and positions us to be a part of the evolving community of great restaurants in San Diego.”
A native of San Francisco’s East Bay region, Larson entered the restaurant industry during his mid-twenties having earned a degree in culinary arts from American River College in Sacramento.
He describes his fare as thought out yet approachable, and since moving to San Diego in June 2017 has been researching farmers markets and planning relationships with local farms, a skill set he practiced while in the Bay Area.
“We are incredibly excited to introduce Chef Larson, his passion, and his dedication to quality and unique ingredients,” said Caroline Sternberg, owner of Red Card Café. “Exceptional ingredients and word fare inspired the Red Card concept and Chef Larson’s experience with California’s robust seasonal selections is a perfect fit.”
