Chef Marc Anthony's Kitchen & Bakery
503 West Mulberry
Next door to Jack n the Box.
HOURS: 11am to 2:30 pm AND 4:30 pm to 9 pm TUES thru SAT.
Chef Marc Anthony's is in an old Pizza Hut, but have really tried to put a different touch to it.
I was immediatelygreated when i came in and saw my friend and went to set down. They had a simple 2 sided menu with great descriptions of food. I saw things you dont normally see at local places like Chili's such as:
Fried Green Tomatoes
Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes
Thai Chicken Salad
Open faced Roast
Cajun Herb Crusted Salmon
The prices were very affordable...$4.99 to $9.99
I had he Tostada Salad with Spicy Ranch MMMMMM MMMMMMMM good. It was packed with fresh veggies that were all well washed and cut by caring hand in the nearby and very open kitchen.
The wait staff were very friendly but not overly bothersome as in other places.
This place is family owened and Operated and the chef is a local AHS alumni that attended Culinary school and "Came back to feed the people of his home town"
I had actually tried there food for the first time at the wedding of some amazing people (Kent & Roberta Phillips last month...Happy 1 month anniversary today guys). The staff there were the same staff working today and they were just as nice and professional today as they were on the wedding day.
The wedding day menu consisted of :
TO DIE FOR artichoke dip
a fruit mix
bacon wrapped chicken
So if you are reading this please take a moment to go and try Chef Marc Anthony's as soos as possible! I think this will be my new place to eat!
The atmosphere was nice and on the quieter side but with soft rumble of other customers talking
Till next time....
