SUNDAY • May 15th, 2016 • 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Join us on the 15th of May for a Pop-Up Dinner.  We will close our doors and usher in some lucky guests for A MIHO Experience in Little Italy.  In every course you will find the secret ingredient, cheese! We're cooking beside guest Chef Ryan Studebaker, the executive chef of A MIHO Experience, a family of exciting brands including MIHO Catering Co. and The Vetted Table.  

Chef Ryan’s love for cooking and apt for creativity in the kitchen were inspired by his father and grandparents during his upbringing in Midland, Michigan. His knack for cooking began when he started working at his father’s restaurant at the age of 13. At age 19, Chef Ryan moved to San Diego to pursue his culinary passion, and nearly 10 years later, he has honed his skills in the city’s top kitchens. 

Upon his move to San Diego, Chef Ryan joined Bertrand at Mister A’s where he perfected the finer points of French cuisine. In 2009, Chef Ryan joined Whisknladle, where he worked his way up the ranks and eventually opened the beloved PrepKitchen in Del Mar. There, he was named one of 2011’s Top Five Rising Chefs in the U.S. by Gayot. 

Known most notably for his time with Brian Malarkey at Enlightened Hospitality, and Matt Gordon’s Solace and the Moonlight Lounge, Chef Ryan was the Chef de Cuisine for both of these popular eateries.  His most recent venture was at Encore Champagne Bar and Dining Room in San Diego’s Gaslamp as Executive Chef, where he further cemented his reputation as a rising star in the San Diego culinary scene. At his most adventurous project to date, Chef Ryan’s well-rounded menu reflected his signature style and passion for locally sourced ingredients complemented by French techniques and Mediterranean flavors. 

Our tabletops will be styled by the amazing Farra Mirón with The Hostess Haven.
