2020 An Artist @ the Table with Jonathon Glus

On Saturday, February 29th, Vanguard Culture hosted a beautiful rooftop dining experience featuring San Diego’s new Executive Director for the San Diego Commission for Arts & Culture, Jonathon Glus. Our Featured Chef Daniella de la Puente from La Cocina Secreta was inspired to create a gorgeous (and delicious) 4-course menu inspired by Jonathon’s lifelong history of service to the visual & performing arts, in addition to his background in creative placemaking, and urban planning. Guests enjoyed wine pairings from the Valle de Guadalupe presented by Baja Wine + Food and gorgeous rooftop views of Downtown at IDEA1, Downtown.
