Craft House and Heritage Barbecue Gathered Chefs to Feed Hospitality Employees


Heritage Barbecue’s Chef Daniel Castillo and Chef Blake Mellgren of Craft House #DanaPoint recently partnered with local chefs and purveyors to feed out of work hospitality employees on Sunday, March 22.

Beginning at 11 am, cars were able to drive through a station at #CraftHouse and pick up 2 BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches through no-touch curbside pickup.

“Chefs, servers, and bartenders have been some of the first people severely economically impacted by the Coronavirus,” Castillo said. “The idea of doing something to meet the basic needs of our industry is giving us all something positive to focus on for the time being.”

Castillo and Mellgren were joined by Chef Ralph Montes of Taco Maria, Chef Trevor Kotchek, and Chef Josh Lozano. The service operated on a strictly drive-through basis with proper social distancing and sanitation efforts in place.

All sandwich buns were generously provided by Dean Kim of OC Baking Company and all pork was supplied by West Coast Prime Meats. They also handed out beer from Artifex Brewing Company and Brewery X!!

Craft House is located at 34094 Pacific Coast Highway in Dana Point, 92629.

Castillo has plans to open a brick-and-mortar version of his popular #HeritageBarbecue in the near future in #SanJuanCapistrano.
