Travis Swikard

Callie, San Diego

Chef Travis Swikard rose through the ranks in Daniel Boulud’s empire to eventually become culinary director at three of his legendary New York City spots. Now back in his native San Diego, Swikard is preparing to finally debut a restaurant of his own: Callie. Join us at the Beard House as we celebrate this milestone with a delicious California and Mediterranean–inspired repast.
