Indoor Dining Is (Sort Of) Back, Plus Virtual Cheese Tastings
Play • 29 min

On this episode of our podcast, Scene in San Diego Featuring Eater, we talk about the latest changes to our county’s reopening under the state’s new, color-coded tier system, and what this means specifically for the local restaurant industry. We also explore another unique, local tasting event gone virtual – and it’s all about cheese.

So, can you dine indoors at a restaurant now? Yes – but you guessed it – there are still lots of rules.

Meanwhile, on our ongoing search for unique, local, online food experiences, we explore tasting events led by the longtime San Diego shop, Venissimo Cheese.

We’re joined by Gina Freize, co-owner of Venissimo, who shares how her shop has taken its famous tastings to the digital realm. Her specialty business really relies on that close community interaction and so, in these times of COVID, her shop has had to adapt and figure out how to make it work.
