Jeff Daar

Lives in Northridge, works in downtown Los Angeles. He is a principal in the law firm of Daar and Newman, which specializes in litigation and domestic and international business transactions.

Kites, wine, beer, politics, music, food … these are just a few of the many things that command Jeff Daar’s interest.

As a law student at the University of California at Davis in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Jeff would hang out with enology students. During forays into California’s then emerging wine country and at many wine tastings, he developed a passion for good wine and in turn good food. Soon, he was reviewing restaurants for the law school newspaper.

While Jeff loves great restaurants and fine dining, he gets a particular kick out of finding good food at affordable spots. And his tastes run a wide gamut.

His wife is a vegetarian (while Jeff eats anything tasty) and he has four children, ages 21, 18, 9 and 7. No surprise that his family also shapes his food experiences.

Jeff is past Chair of the Democratic Party of the San Fernando Valley, a political button collector, a music collector and a kite flier, when the wind is right.
