New California Law Allows Home Restaurants

"Riverside’s Newly Legal Home Restaurants Look to Revolutionize California’s Food Scene"

Quote

Barra de Pan is a home restaurant in the vast Inland Empire, and it has been given full approval to operate thanks to California Retail Food Code AB-626, which legalizes “microenterprise home kitchen operations.” The newly implemented regulation allows anyone to run a licensed restaurant out of their home kitchen and dining room. No commercial space, no food truck, no ghost kitchen, and no staff is needed — just pull some local permits to get certified by the Riverside County public health office.

While it sounds easy to start an at-home restaurant, there are many hoops to jump through before you get the permit.

 

This reminds me so much of eG'er Bryan Z who had amazing pop-up dinners at his apartment/home. Some of the dinners have been documented here on Egullet. Any other longtime eG'ers remember him?

I don't know if he was around when I joined, but I definitely remember spending a lot of time reading his posts!  His stuff looked amazing.

Ahhhhh - the folly of youth.  I think there were maybe a few others doing similar, including maybe people who might still be on here.

 

I think Bryan has ended up semi-permanently in the Bay Area.
