There are countless cultural attractions and even more restaurants to explore in Southern California, but until now there has never been a local establishment to unite both worlds in a singular curated experience that invokes the ambient SoCal vibe with nostalgic Americana fare. Making its debut at Pacific City in Huntington Beach, Calif. offering craft beers in a can, wines on draught, more than 100 varieties of the world's finest cheeses and an entire bar devoted to bacon, Saint Marc Pub - Café, Bakery & Cheese Affinage has opened its doors to the eclectic mix of people who day after day gravitate toward the legendary epicenter of California's surf culture.
Free-flow fresh breads and baked goods, a bold and daring bacon bar offering a variety of flavored cuts and a retail store for favorite grab-n-go selections also serve as Saint Marc's trademark pillars.
Saint Marc Pub - Café, Bakery & Cheese Affinage is the brand's first and flagship establishment, situated along the Huntington Beach coastline within the vibrant new Pacific City.
Conjured up by world-renowned culinary and mixology mavericks -- CEO Thomas (Mac) McFarland Gregory III and vice president of culinary & operations Frank Mathew Belosic III -- the modern yet homey urban hangout is destined to become a favorite for fans of an elevated dining experience without the price tag expected from talents this esteemed and for food and drink this good.
"This is truly the day Frank and I have been looking forward to and preparing for our entire careers," says Gregory, the legendary mixologist, advanced sommelier and top industry executive of 25 years who has developed, launched and managed hundreds of locations for the world's most elite luxury hospitality brands. "And we couldn't have picked a better place than beautiful Pacific City in Huntington Beach. This is exactly the location and the kind of people who have inspired us to create this dramatically different restaurant concept that gives new meaning to the word hospitality and can only be defined by the experience of the guests themselves."
Gregory and Belosic, a master chef with more than 20 years of industry experience at Five Star and Five Diamond restaurants and hotels throughout the U.S., have combined their passions and stellar reputations for inventiveness into an enigma intentionally designed to defy definition yet seamlessly conform to the wants and needs of every guest upon every visit. Among an open-air coastal environment, Saint Marc Pub - Café, Bakery & Cheese Affinage features four distinct concepts in one nonexclusive, noncommittal, affordable five-star experience.
"We want everyone's dining experience to be unique while at Saint Marc -- to some it's a place to bring family and to others it's a hot spot for a drink on Friday night," adds Belosic. "From breakfast to brunch, lunch, dinner and late night, we want to be the place that people know offers it all."
