New 'culinary destination' now open

New 'culinary destination' now openKent McGowan launched the soft opening of Mac’s International Restaurant on Thursday. McGowan said that the staff had a test run on Father’s Day to try and work out the workflow. “The feedback was very positive. Everyone commented that the ambiance is great and the food is worth the wait!” The establishment is open by reservation only through Sunday (call 760-446-1110). Regular hours resume Monday, June 29, from 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. The restaurant features a few signature items — like the Irish egg rolls and smoked cheddar-brisket sandwich — that will be permanently on the menu. Every three months the featured cuisine will change. Right now Mac’s is offering German, Italian and Cajun food. — Photo by Rebecca Neipp
