SDCM prides itself on bringing innovative design, events, entertainment and great hospitality to San Diego.

Owned and operated by Matthew Spencer, SDCM was founded on Spencer’s 20 years of hospitality industry experience. SDCM is a rapidly growing company which spans 9 concepts, each with a distinct culinary voice, style and identity. Our concepts include the following nationally acclaimed establishments: The Whaling Bar, Waverly, Kettner Exchange, FIREHOUSE, Camino Riviera, Vin de Syrah, The Grass Skirt, Captain’s Quarters & Devils Dozen.

Award-wining Corporate Executive Chef Brian Redzikowski, formerly of Le Cirque 2000, Nobu Matsuhisa Aspen, and Joel Rubuchon at the Mansion in Las Vegas, leads menu development for all six of SDCM’s creative concepts and is responsible for sustaining and elevating culinary offerings for all current and future projects. During Chef Brian’s career, he has had the opportunity of competing in Iron Chef America as well as being awarded rising chef in the Los Angeles California area. Brian was also invited to cook at the James Beard house in New York City, was the winner of Cochon Los Angeles in 2018 and 2019 and was the Grand Cochon winner in 2019. Additionally, in 2019, Chef Brian’s own Kettner Exchange was selected as one of just 8 San Diego restaurants to be included in the Michelin Guide’s prestigious Bib Gourmand list, an honor which has been retained through 2023.
