Davin Waite, Executive Chef / Owner : Wrench & Rodent, The Whet Noodle, Pickled Ginger Catering, Executive Chef / Founding Partner : The Plot

Davin Waite began his career as a sushi chef at Ichiban in Santa Barbara. Back in North San Diego County Davin continued on to Cafe Japengo, and in 2003 he returned to his hometown of Oceanside to co-found The Fish Joint. With his next project Davin created a restaurant in his own image; scrappy, irreverent and constantly pushing boundaries. Wrench & Rodent Seabasstropub began as a pop-up but quickly became a destination for those who appreciated Waite’s creative and delicious approach to minimizing waste and celebrating local and sustainably sourced products. Waite aims to stay in a state of consistent innovation and creation in order to teach and inspire, and his menus reflect his values as he continues to evolve as a chef and as an advocate.
