If you’ve got a restaurant, you need a concierge plan. No other way around it.

After coming on board last month with Skyloft Restaurant in Laguna Beach, we began making plans for a concierge and writers’ event. With new Chef Arthur Ortiz in play, it was important to showcase the new personality and his amazing cuisine as Skyloft has definitely stepped up in this world since its opening weeks.

We limited the invites to e-mail only, but follow-up was intensive. On our big night, we had an absolutely packed house with drinks on the roof deck during sunset and a 7-course meal of Chef favorites following. Awesome awesomeness. Life is good.
