It’s almost lunch time, and Lunch Break returns with some mid-day meal inspiration from OpenTable employee Steven Weinbaum in La Jolla, California. Steven is a restaurant operations specialist, helping restaurants with OpenTable installations and training. He’s a fish taco aficionado who takes his Belvedere vodka with a blood orange. He recently had a meal to remember at Nopalito, and he’d like to break bread with chef Thomas Keller. Read on for more of Steven’s dining + food (including burrito!) recommendations.
