SABRE SPRINGS (KUSI) – A local restaurant is paying tribute to San Diego swimmer, Florence Chadwick.

The restaurant just opened on Monday and KUSI’s Allie Wagner checked it out live on Good Morning San Diego.

Some fun facts about the restaurant, the land it is on used to belong to the Chadwick family. Florence Chadwick was the first person ever to swim the English Channel, both ways!

Lastly, it is right off of Ted Williams Parkway, and Florence was personal friends with Williams and many other famous athletes.
