Executive Chef Masa Kojima, Pastry Chef Aly Lyng, and the entire kitchen staff will welcome guests on April 9 from 10am–3pm, serving brunch indoors only in Level2, which still offers floor-to-ceiling views of La Jolla Cove. Menu highlights include Classic Eggs Benedict, Brioche French Toast, Grass-Fed Burger, and Fish Sandwich. Brunch desserts include Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake and Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée. 858.454.4244, georgesatthecove.com/ blog/easter-brunch La Valencia LA VALENCIA: PHOTO BY NATHAN CONCEPCION RSFHS: PHOTO BY JENNIFER NELSON What's Next Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society marks the 100th year of La Flecha House with events, limited edition memberships, and a planned renovation. Located at the corner of La Flecha and Via de Santa Fe, La Flecha House was the first house in the Rancho Santa Fe Civic Center built for the Santa Fe Land Improvement Company and the first residence designed by renowned architect Lilian Rice, in 1923. The first occupants of La Flecha House were Sydney R. Nelson and his family, who allowed a portion of the home to be used as the Ranch's first library. Over the decades, several families called La Flecha House home. Generously and lovingly gifted to the Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society in the late 1980s by the Reitz family, La Flecha House today serves as a museum, a repository of native artifacts, and a robust archive of tens of thousands of historical documents, photos, and media pertaining to the Ranch's storied history. Later this year, the courtyard and the outdated drainage system will be getting a much-needed renovation to prevent further water damage inside the museum. To celebrate the centennial, the RSF Historical Society has several plans in the works: A limited number of Centennial Club memberships will be available which will include a permanent personal paver in the renovated courtyard; an Upcoming Tag Sale will enable supporters to own a piece of Ranch history (see page 30); and the popular Fandango celebration will be back in the fall, along with Stories from the Ranch. The organization has also announced long-time resident Cutter Clotfelter as its new president. Clotfelter, born and raised in the Ranch, has served on the RSF Trails and Recreation Committee and on the Historical Society Board, and is instrumental in keeping the Ranch's traditions alive, including the Fourth of July Parade. "I believe we are all the custodians of our past. Our collective local knowledge and shared history connect us all," says Clotfelter. The new Board of Directors including Vice President Sean J. Burgess, Secretary Susie Ault, Treasurer Kim Snyder, Peggy Brooks, Max Wuthrich, Gijs Hanselaar, Terri Chivetta, Richard Clyne, Linda Hahn, and Jill Stiker look forward to having Clotfelter at the helm as the mission and growth of RSFHS continues. 858.756.9291, rsfhs.org (Standing): Cutter Clotfelter, Terri Chivetta, Kim Snyder, Emily Fawcett, Richard Clyne; (seated): Susie Ault, Peggy Brooks RANCH & COAST MAGAZINE APRIL 2023 41
