“Joining Jeune et Jolie as its Executive Chef, I’m truly excited to work alongside John Resnick and his team”
A veteran of some of the most prestigious restaurants around the world and most recently of his critically-acclaimed solo project, Auburn, in Los Angeles, Chef Eric Bost has set his sights on the Southern California coastal town of Carlsbad and the 2,000 square-foot ode to nouvelle French cuisine, Jeune et Jolie. Named one of Esquire’s Best New Restaurants in America 2019, Jeune et Jolie, whose name translates to “young and beautiful,” is the second venture from owner John Resnick whose first restaurant, Campfire, received a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2019. Among many accolades, Jeune et Jolie was also named Restaurant of the Year by Eater and the San Diego Union-Tribune.
“Joining Jeune et Jolie as its Executive Chef, I’m truly excited to work alongside John Resnick and his team,” says Bost. “Since Auburn, I’ve been striving to surround myself with vibrant and highly engaging individuals who are genuinely focused on offering a warm and thoughtful experience and are committed to constantly dig deeper. Through our conversations over the course of the summer, I’ve become convinced that this team is exactly that. I’m certainly appreciative of the opportunity to lead the culinary team and contribute to such a special place. It’s an exciting transition, and I look forward to hitting the ground running very soon.”
Bost's tenure in the kitchen includes Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée and Les Ambassadeurs at the Hôtel de Crillon. He was Chef de Cuisine at Restaurant Guy Savoy in Las Vegas when they received two Michelin Stars. In 2016, he quickly became immersed in the LA’s culinary landscape as Executive Chef of the beloved République. All this and more can be found in a recent article on Eater San Diego.
