(Photo by Leonard Ortiz, Orange County Register/SCNG) Only a few years after losing his house and finding himself on the brink of bankruptcy, Ryan Dudley glides down the stairs of his “best kept secret” restaurant, The Cellar, and mimes a toast to the staff. Not only did they survive the Great Recession, The Cellar is succeeding enough that Dudley recently bought the restaurant just above, Fullerton’s Hidalgo. Sitting in a black booth trimmed with red velvet — The Cellar was decorated a half-century ago by Disneyland craftsman Gene White who helped create the Pirates of the Caribbean ride — Dudley smiles the smile of a man who is finally living his life in full. At 42, he and his wife, Brianne, are even considering leaving their rental home and buying a house. Dudley goes so far as to add his five-year-old twin boys haven’t been a problem. But I laugh a little and shake my head. As a father of twins, I know how difficult that first year is — a blur of diaper changes, feedings and sleep-deprivation. Dudley smiles at our shared truth. Then he opens up. But consider caution before you continue reading. If you are thinking of opening a restaurant, you will soon discover that eateries are one tough business. What’s old is new As Dudley’s story unfolds, hipster millennials and seasoned couples easily mix at what many consider one of Orange County’s coolest bars, some even call it a speakeasy. Soft jazz gently plays and recalls eras most of us only know through TV shows such as “Boardwalk Empire” and “Mad Men.” Actor John Wayne is said to have had a favorite table here, and it has long been rumored that at a certain private booth Richard Burton proposed to Elizabeth Taylor — the second time. OC Weekly critic Greg Nagel calls The Cellar a primo place for date night. “The intimate restaurant has a relaxed vibe and hauntingly great cocktails made by talented bartenders.” Dudley allows there are three secrets to the perfect cocktail: Only use glass (and that definitely nixes plastic swizzle sticks), chip off ice from crystal-clear blocks (it’s more pure and melts more slowly), make your own syrups from scratch. Among nearly 20 drinks listed on the menu, there are some things old, such as an “Original Manhattan,” with rye whiskey, sweet vermouth blend, absinthe and Boker’s Bitters; and there are some things new, such as “Always Tomorrow,” a combination of bourbon, hazelnut, cream sherry, Amaro Meletti, Amaro Montenegro and Amaro Lucano. I try something called “The Cuff,” as in off the cuff because it’s whatever the bartender is in the mood for making. The drink is cold, sweet, delicious and, well, pretty with a rose petal floating on the surface. Still, one of my favorite things about the award-winning Cellar (first and only U.S. restaurant inducted into Barons de Rothschild Ambassadors of Excellence Club) is that below ground most cellphones don’t work. Nagel smartly points out that being disconnected makes “for an evening filled with uninterrupted conversation.” It’s a perfect touch as Dudley reveals his journey of adversity that began almost from the cradle. Finding his footing Dad was in the Air Force, met Mom in Hawaii and ended up raising his son solo. When veteran and son moved to Orange County, accommodations were so spare Dudley recalls sleeping on the couch. But his father, Paul Dudley, soon found work with the city of Fullerton and thrived working in development services. His son, however, struggled in school. But it wasn’t hard work that bothered Dudley. It was the a system that fails many. When Dad told his 15-year-old son to get a job, his son was quick to comply. His first job was at Giovanni’s Pizza, a family place in Fullerton that is now a sit-down restaurant but specialized in over-the-counter when Dudley worked there. “It was like a bootcamp,” Dudley recalls, explaining everyone did everything, from dishwasher to cook. “It was a tough, strict environment.” Still, he loved the place and most of all, he loved being part of a team. He stayed five years. Along the way, he enrolled in business administration classes at Fullerton College where he found academic support he didn’t find in high school. He soon earned an AA degree and realized he wanted a career in the restaurant business. “I like managing, serving, bartending,” Dudley explains. “It’s fun.” Next, Dudley enrolled at Cal State Fullerton. Again, though, he stumbled with the academics and eventually flunked out. But he didn’t give up. He heard Cal Poly Pomona had a budding hospitality management program and with his AA degree he was quickly admitted. It turned out to be a perfect fit. Only 30 students were in the program — today there are 1,000 — and, once again, Dudley found the help he needed with book work. “I struggled mightily,” he admits and says he succeeded by attending every class, tackling every assignment. After graduating, he received an immediate offer in management. Lawry’s restaurants groomed the young man quickly. First, Dudley had a stint at their Beverly Hills location. Next, he worked at Five Crowns restaurant and steakhouse in Corona del Mar. Then the company sent him to run their place at South Coast Plaza. But the opportunity turned out to be the only thing in the restaurant business Dudley had his fill of — counter service. Worse, he didn’t really have a team. Without tables or chairs, customers came and went and so did the high school help he hired. “If I had to work that hard,” Dudley allows, “I thought I might as well work for myself.” Through thick and thin Suddenly, at 27 years of age, Dudley learned one of his favorite restaurants in his home town was up for sale. Yes, it was The Cellar. Crunching the numbers from his pickup truck, he knew it would mean accepting loans from family, friends and banks. It also would require putting up the equity on the house he’d recently bought with his sister. Finally, on Nov. 17, 2004, it was all hashed out. There was a new restaurateur in Fullerton. The long-time maitre’d, Sean Lewis, walked up, smiled and promised, “Mr. Ryan, I’m going to make you your first dollar.” Dudley felt he was home, embedded in a family of professionals who would watch his back just as he would watch theirs. Then the Great Recession hit. Within a year, business dropped 40 percent. Making matters tougher, the restaurant rage was gastropubs with bare concrete floors and sky-high ceilings. Then, Dudley’s mentor, Lewis, died. “Things went from bad to worse.” The couple lost their house and moved in with family. Then the twins were born. With Dudley working days and nights at the restaurant, the stack of challenges nearly broke apart the couple. But they persevered and eventually started to thrive. Brianne mastered the art of social media marketing. Dudley found what he considers a world-class bartender, Rich Ohtsuka, a master at craft cocktails. Next, he hired a talented executive chef, Scott Rosales, who trained at Pasadena’s Le Cordon Bleu. Understand, Rosales is a warrior not only in the kitchen but on the battlefield. He is a burly, heavily tattooed Army reserve sergeant with several years of combat duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. But I would be remiss if I failed to mention Rosales makes an exquisite chowder with pureed wild mushrooms, white asparagus, cream, chive oil and sauteed mushrooms. Dream come true We take a break from The Cellar and go upstairs to check out Hidalgo. There, we meet another of Dudley’s prized bartenders, Dustin Adams, working his magic. With an official grand opening on April 14, future plans include improvements to the interior as well as the menu which Dudley says will include aspects of Mexican, South American, Cuban and Spanish cuisine. He calls it “pan-Latin.” As we head back down to The Cellar, Dudley allows that for nearly two decades he has dreamed of building his own restaurant company and now he’s on his way. “I wish I could tell you where this entrepreneurial spirit came from,” he says, “but I can’t.” Still, the restaurateur confides he has an inner drive and quietly offers, “Maybe I have something to prove to the world.” But perhaps Dudley and team already have proven themselves. As we walk into The Cellar, nearly every table is full. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”]

THE FAMILY of a Towie-loving jihadi today moaned SHE is the one who has suffered since joining ISIS – as it’s revealed she’s back on Britain’s streets. Tareena Shakil, 29, became the first British woman to be jailed after fleeing to Syria to be part of the murderous cult – sentenced to six years behind bars in 2016. Tareena Shakil, 29, was sentenced to six years behind bars after returning to the UK from Syria The young woman’s family said they were victims But it was revealed the young woman was freed from prison last summer, and is now living in a Birmingham flat. Today, her mum Mandy, speaking from the family home in Burton-on-Trent, Staffs, said her daughter was “keeping her head down”. But a family source said she felt “victimised” after the spotlight was thrown back on Brit jihadis following pregnant Shamima Begum’s pleas to come back to the UK to have her baby. Her family say they “can’t understand” why her case is in the public interest – despite the fact she fled to Syria to be part of “the next generation of fighters”. A source close to the family told The Sun Online: “The family feel that they are victims of the fallout of the girl in Tower Hamlets and they want to be left alone. They think it’s all being dragged up. “Tareena has been out of prison for a considerable amount of time and has been signing on at the police station as required. “The family don’t understand why this is of public interest.” Her mum refused to comment further, but hinted her daughter had gone to ground, adding: “You won’t be able to find her”. Do you know Tareena Shakil? Email us at tips@the-sun.co.uk or call 0207 782 4368. You can WhatsApp us on 07810 791 502. Shakil was jailed after a judge found she had intentionally travelled to the war-torn region of Syria to join ISIS. She had told her family she was going on holiday to Turkey but instead secretly went to Raqqa after taking out a student loan in 2014. Once there, Shakil even boasted of joining the terrifying Islamic State, posing with weapons – with one picture even showing her toddler son in an IS hat. She ultimately returned to the UK after apparently telling an IS minder she had to go visit her husband, who didn’t exist. She then got a taxi to take her close to Turkey – running across a field to safety. Returning to England, Shakil was found guilty of encouraging acts of terrorism on social media and being a member of Islamic State, jailed for six years in 2016. [quote credit=”Relative Of Tareena Shakil”]She has put all that radicalisation behind her and just wants to live a normal life now[/quote] The judge found she had intentionally travelled to the war-torn region to “produce the next generation of fighters”. Relatives said the former finance student had been released from jail last summer. They said: “I’ve seen her a few times since then, including at Christmas. She has put all that radicalisation behind her and just wants to live a normal life now. She no longer wears a headscarf.” However, relatives claimed her son was not in her custody and she instead had “supervised contact” visits. Debate over British jihadis returning to the UK after running away to Syria has raged this week after teen Begum, now 19, reurfaced in a Syrian refugee camp. The teen said she did not regret her decision to join the cult – but was desperate to come home for the sake of her child’s health. She said: “In the end, I just could not endure anymore. I just couldn’t take it. Now all I want to do is come home to Britain.” [boxout headline=”RETURNING JIHADIS What is the law in Britain?”]In 2018, it was revealed that almost 400 Brit jihadis who fought for bloodthirsty ISIS in Syria are back in the UK. But shockingly just one in ten have been prosecuted for “direct action they’ve carried out in Syria”. Around 15 per cent of the 850 Brits believed to have travelled to Syria or Iraq have died. The Home Office says every person who returns is questioned by police and an assessment made over whether they are a threat to Britain. However few have been prosecuted. The Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill is currently going through Parliament, after its third reading in the House of Lords. This could make travelling abroad to join terror groups an offence which carries a penalty of ten years in prison. Security Minister Ben Wallace said: “The UK advises against all travel to Syria and parts of Iraq. Anyone who does travel to these areas, for whatever reason, is putting themselves in considerable danger. “Everyone who returns from taking part in the conflict in Syria or Iraq must expect to be investigated by the police to determine if they have committed criminal offences, and to ensure that they do not pose a threat to our national security. “There are a range of terrorism offences where individuals can be convicted for crimes committed overseas and we can also use Temporary Exclusion Orders to control an individuals’ return to the UK.” [/boxout] [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS ” posts_category=”2″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Shakil’s release from prison comes after her father and brother were jailed for peddling drugs. Tareem Shakil, 26, and Mohammad Shakil, 47, ran a drugs operation from three addresses in Swadlincote. Mohammad was found guilty at trial, while Tareem pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply Class A drugs, including heroin and crack cocaine.
