San Diego's Jeune Et Jolie To Launch Island-Focused Weekend Family Meals

April 20, 2020

Starting this weekend, North County San Diego's Jeune Et Jolie restaurant will begin offering family meals inspired by the Caribbean, aiming to give patrons a taste of vacation while stuck in quarantine.

Beginning this Friday, April 24, Jeune et Jolie will be offering family-style meals inspired by the island live, available for pickup on Friday and Saturday evenings. In addition to the dinners, the restaurant will also offer tropical cocktails to-go. 

"These are strange times," read a post on Jeune et Jolie's Instagram. "It is remarkable how isolated we are from each other, and yet how close we are in this remote but shared experience. We have common confusion and worries, but also common desires. So many of us are craving community and connection. We are craving hope, laughter and love. And so here at Campfire and Jeune et Jolie, we have been asking ourselves how we can continue to keep each other safe, while attempting to bring some joy and comfort into the lives of our beloved community. That, and we just want to have some fun. So, here’s our idea... . . Jolie Fire: A Caribbean-Inspired Pop-Up."  

From owner John Resnick and his longtime friend and Executive Chef Andrew Bachelier, who opened hit woodfire-based restaurant Campfire in 2016, Jeune Et Joie is a contemporary French-style bistro that debuted in late 2018. Located only 400 feet up the street from Campfire, Jeune Et Jolie, which means "young and beautiful" in French and also pays homage to Resnick and Bachelier's daughters' middle names (Elsie June Resnick and Margot Jolie Bachelier), the eatery usually offers a seasonal French-fusion menu based around locally grown ingredients, as well as a raw bar with a focus on oysters. Jeune et Jolie was awarded a highly coveted Bib Gourmand honoration in the 2019 Michelin Guide California.
